Inhaltsangabe: It is hard to maintain a witty equilibrium in the realm of manners in cultured society. If one ignores social conventions, one runs the risk of being perceived as uneducated; however, following all common protocol pegs one as a nerd. With tongue in cheek, Potter reveals how to confound those who like to practice their one-upmanship. What's a one-upmanship? An angle of vision, a way of life, a series of gambits, ploys and devices - all of these and more, upmanship is an individual talent. Remember one final overwhelming truth: If you're not one up, you're one down.
Über den Autor: Stephen Potter (1900-1969) was educated at Westminster School and Merton College, Oxford, where he took honors in English. A lecturer in English Literature at London University between 1925 and 1938, he then joined the BBC as a writer-producer, becoming a book and drama critic in 1945. Mr. Potter is the author of Gamesmanship: The Art of Winning Games Without Actually Cheating and Lifesmanship: The Art of Getting Away Without Being an Absolute Plonk and Supermanship or How to Continue to Top Without Actually Falling Apart.
