Om författaren

Scott Adams, Cartoonist Scott Adams was born and raised in Windham, New York in the Catskill Mountains. He received a B.A. in economics from Hartwick College, Oneonta, NY and an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley. He is also a certified hypnotist. Adams worked in a bank for eight years visa mer and, while a bank teller, was robbed twice at gunpoint. He also worked for Pacific Bell for nine years and describes both jobs as "humiliating and low paying jobs." It was during this time, that Adams created the character Dilbert. He was entertaining himself during meetings by drawing insulting cartoons of his co-workers and bosses. In 1988, he mailed some sample comic strips featuring Dilbert to some major cartoon syndicates. He was offered a contract and Dilbert was launched in approximately fifty papers in 1989. Adams began working on Dilbert full time as well as speaking, writing, doing interviews, and designing artwork for licensed products. Dilbert is published in over 1,200 newspapers and has a hard cover business book called "The Dilbert Principle." (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Kort biografi
Adams is trained as a hypnotist and is a vegetarian. He is the creator of the Dilbert comic strip and the author of several nonfiction works of satire and commentary and business and general speculation.



Some parts of the book, especially talking about his early career, is quite annoying. He says he is skill-free, but gets promoted and finally fired as he hit the diversity ceiling. I will leave them there.

Two things, I liked from the book:

Goals vs Systems: I understand, a goal, for example means, “reduce 10 kgs in the next six months” but a system will be, “eat healthy food and be strong and fit”. I really liked this concept, as you are living under a constant pressure of failure in a goal based approach, but in a systems based approach you keep learning what are all the healthy foods that you can eat, make the best out of the existing situation and keep improving. The journey to reach your destination in goal based approach can be filled with guilt and near failure, which sucks.

Affirmations: Say to yourself, repeatedly (at least 15 times), everyday on what you want to be and you will become that. This sounds like Alchemist-voodoo crap. Scott is also aware of this. He has mentioned a several disclaimers in his book about this. I find it curious and amusing because, this is what religion does to people in the name of prayers. Psychologists say that this is positive thinking and positive visualization. But it is a nice mechanism to stay optimistic.

No-nonsense, pragmatic, practical self-help book. Debunks some of the myths sorrunding passion vs success.
harishwriter | 22 andra recensioner | Oct 12, 2023 |
One of the best books I read in my life. Unprecedented clarity and simplicity in narration. Masterful understanding and explanation of affirmation and energy concept.

This is "How to Win Friends and Influence People" but for 21st century. Outstanding!
