How I Beat Coca-Cola and Other Tales of One-Upmanship

Paperback

Price: $19.95

Overview

Carl Djerassi crafts a shrewd collection of comedies of manners, exposing the foibles of elite tribes–business executives, chefs, scientists, professors, musicians, and other clever characters. They spar in battles of one-upmanship using class, education, gender, or prestige as their weapons, sometimes leaving damaged bystanders in their wake but sometimes finding their superiority deflated by unexpected turns of events.
