Inhaltsangabe: Have you ever come up with the perfect comeback, but too late for a clever response? Michael Sherwood, author of Perfume & Underwear has spent many days - and nights (just ask his sleep-deprived wife) - writing down all of those things the rest of us wish we had said and done.
What started as a conversation with his stepdaughter about the title elements has blossomed into nine thematically-organized chapters of wisdom and witticisms.
Touching on everything from basic manners and money-handling skills all the way to sea-worthiness and sex, Sherwood lets all of those insights flow through the pages and into the world.
Do you know someone who is a ''docksucker''?
If the grass is greener on the other side, what do you do with it?
How do you know what your blind date will look like?
Perfume & Underwear holds the answers for you. More enlightening than educational, Sherwood's musings will keep you laughing as they also keep you thinking ''I wish I'd said that!''
About the Author: Michael Sherwood lives in mid-coast Maine with his wife, their Weimaraner named Skye, and Psycho the cat. Michael was fortunate enough to have attended private schools, the Marine Corps, and then business college.
Following those life experiences, he was employed by some of the top Fortune 500 corporations in sales and management. Fortunately, Michael saw the handwriting on the wall and realized his desired path upward was only going diagonally. Doing things his way was not in the best interests to him or his employers. To fulfill his version of a satisfying career, both financially and personally, he made the decision to drastically alter his occupation and lifestyle. Michael does kick back at the end of the day and enjoys his evening vodka Gibson--straight up, one onion--while contemplating his next boat, a forty-four foot lobster yacht, and organizing another writing project.

First editions of this exceedingly scarce and lavishly illustrated educational course on how to design, construct, and arrange window displays and floor displays of men and women's clothing during the Jazz Age. Koerber (1871-1937) was an Hungarian-American designer and amazingly successful Display Manager for the Strawbridge & Clothier Department Store in Philadelphia, at their five-story edifice flagship at Market & 8th. He emphasized and promoted the use of elaborate window displays, with wax mannequins, often with a particular theme, and these needed to be constantly refreshed by the design department. In addition, he highlighted the staging of merchandise on the floor, such as putting men's ties with their multi-coloured silks drawing shoppers to the men's department, and arranging women's undergarments, silks, and evening wear in prominent positions to draw women further into specified sections. This illustrated series emphasizes specific methods of folding and arranging clothes and garments on display fixtures, decorative and almost floral arrangements for shoes, hats, handkerchiefs, sporting goods, and even luggage to attract the consumer's attention. The hundreds of photo images of window displays, and floor displays provide an invaluable historical record for marketing during the Roaring 20s, as well as offering a methodology of how these could be repeated and successful for other designers. Koerber's methods and designs began influencing window displays and marketing across America before World War I, and he often contributed to trade magazines such as Marketing Communications, Merchants Record and Show Window, The Clothier and Furnisher, and many other trade magazines.
