About the book:

A Devils 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 Bierces Devils 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 Hoffmans sardonic and dizzying tour of Mammon.
