Detailed Product Description
Full title: Stephen Potter on One-Upmanship: Being Some Account of the Activities and Teachings of the Lifemanship Correspondence College

London, Rupert, Hart-Davis, 1960, 6th impression. 160 pp, b/w illustrations. Small blue cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Very minor wear to jacket. Fine.

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. Frank Wilson illustrator.
