9781560259060: A Devil's Dictionary of Business: Monkey Business; High Finance and Low; Money, the Making, Losing, and Printing Thereof; Commerce; Trade; Cleve

This book is an incisive and entertaining overview of the business world, worthy of its antecedent, Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary. Told from the perspective of the legendary Nicholas von Hoffman, it is catty, sharp, funny, mean and informative. Arranged alphabetically, from "Abacus" to "Zukor, Adlph" the dictionary elucidates the business world from top to bottom, from the ancient world to the present. The Devil's Dictionary of Business 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.
