1.       The Dilbert Principle

"We're a planet of nearly six billion ninnies living in a civilization that was created by a few thousand amazingly smart deviants."

2.       The Complete Yes Minister

"The reason most organizational programs abort is that they fail to deal with our life patterns, which are at the foundation of workplace anxiety, tension and conflict."

3.       Poorly Made in China

"American companies...were no match for savvy Chinese industrialists who often went out of their way to manipulate product specifications to widen profit margins."

4.       Don't Bring It to Work

"It's called 'the law of inverse relevance': the less you intend to do about something, the more you have to keep talking about it."

5.       21 Dirty Tricks at Work

"Dirty tricks are more than just a career-threatening nuisance; they also form part of the political backdrop to all the great recent organizational scandals."

6.       Crazy Bosses

"After nearly 6,000 years of evidence on the subject, one thing stands clear: the people who end up as leaders in any organization, large or small, are often the craziest guys around."

7.       The Peter Principle

"Anything that works will be used in progressively more challenging applications until it fails."

8.       The 4-Hour Workweek

"Alternating periods of activity and rest is necessary to survive, let alone thrive. Capacity, interest, and mental endurance all wax and wane. Plan accordingly."

9.       The No Asshole Rule

"Two-faced backstabbers...who have enough skill and emotional control to save their dirty work for moments when they can't get caught, are tougher to stop--even though they may do as much damage as a raging maniac."

10. How to Lie With Statistics

"A well-wrapped statistic is better than Hitler's 'big lie'; it misleads, yet it cannot be pinned on you."
