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.
