How I Beat Coca-Cola and Other Tales of One-Upmanship(2013)
A collection of stories by Carl Djerassi
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.
