[nice tight copy, faint soiling to top edge; mostly-white jacket shows some soiling, minor chipping at top of spine, slight fading and small sticker-removal scar to spine]. An interesting INSCRIPTION by the co-author (Hoffer) on the ffep: "To my friend Billy Hayes -- If you enjoy reading this book, just wait till you see my next one!" The "next one" to which he refers is " Midnight Express" -- thus the inscribee of this book was the selfsame Billy Hayes who was the author (with Hoffer's help) of that harrowing account of life in a Turkish prison, later made into the movie of the same name. I guess that would make this an "association copy, once removed" ( since it refers to a different book than the one actually bearing the inscription). Anyway, this one includes "the Ten Cardinal Rules for Committing Adultery and Not Getting Caught"; too bad Mr. Hayes didn't have a book like that dealing with drug smuggling instead of adultery!
