5.0 out of 5 stars The third Basic Instructions book is a riot! April 26 2012
By DxS - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got into Basic Instructions a few years ago. Dilbert's author, Scott Adams, mentioned how much he enjoyed BI and encouraged his readers to check it out.

Under the typewritten, apparently-serious instructions on each panel is a story that somehow goes horribly off the rails. This third installment includes all my favorite characters--Ric (both versions), the Moon Emperor, Rocket Hat, Mullet Boss, Angry Customer, Omnipresent Man, the Knifeketeer, the Judger, and, of course, Scott and Missy. Also, Jenkins is starting to come into his own. There are also a few surprise extra features at the beginning and end of the book.

Scott Meyer's humor can be subtle and dangerous. Don't sip a beverage while reading or for a minute or two after.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny stuff May 14 2012

I think most of these are already available free on the Basic Instructions website however the addition of the footnote style comments definitely boosts the value of the book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarity in Book Form Aug. 24 2013
By apl0discord - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This comic is one of my absolute favorites on the web. The instructions are both useful and hilariously demonstrated. Granted, I don't know when I'll need to confront the Moon-Man Emperor, but I will need to know how to explain what the "hell" I am doing, how to maintain a peaceful break room, and many, many others. Be forewarned: if you must read around sleeping people, then take steps to contain bursts of laughter.
5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Instructions for a quick does of funny! May 15 2013
By J. Bossers - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read many, many webcomics, but I must admit that some lack a consistent hilarity. Scott Meyer does more than provide consistency, he manages to say everything we want to about jobs, friends and other relationships while making it laugh-out-loud funny.
The curse of the Masking Tape Mummy is the 3rd collection of his comics and if you haven't checked out the other two you're missing out.
Don't miss out. Seriously, go get this book!
5.0 out of 5 stars Get it, get all three! April 13 2013

Basic Instructions is the coolest comic I've seen in awhile. I can relate to his characters and how they get abused! Buy it, heck buy all three and wait for the next one to come out!
