9781560257127: A Devil's Dictionary of Business: Monkey Business; High Finance and Low; Money, the Making, Losing, and Printing Thereof; Commerce, Trade; Clever Tricks; Tours de Force; Globalism and Globaloney

A Devil’s Dictionary of Business is a godsend to those looking for an incisive and entertaining overview of the business world, told from the perspective of the legendary Nicholas von Hoffman, the former Washington Post columnist and commentator for 60 Minutes.

From the Abacus to Zukor, von Hoffman summarizes, details, bewails, and elucidates the business world from top to bottom, from the ancient world to the Enron world. This catty, chatty, sharp, funny, mean, informative, and engaging book is worthy of its antecedent, Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary, and is an ideal gift for your stockbroker, bank manager, loan shark, or that anticapitalist, Starbucks-bashing cousin of yours, all of whom will enjoy von Hoffman’s sardonic and dizzying tour of Mammon.

About the Author:

Nicholas von Hoffman, a Pulitzer Prize–losing author, has had a long and bumpy career in journalism, during which he has been fired more than a few times by editors and TV executives who have a limited tolerance for curmudgeonly behavior. For years he wrote a syndicated column for the Washington Post that ended in a lynch-or-resign situation. He is the author of 13 books, the best known of which is Citizen Cohn, several plays, and an opera libretto. He is a columnist for the New York Observer.
