"John Van Maanen here gives us a spirited, self-reflexive guide to the rhetorical styles used in 'the cultural representation trade,' a quirky performance-art Strunk and White for ethnographers and their readers." (American Journal of Sociology) "Van Maanen has written a powerful statement, in the guise of a mere introduction, that compels us to rethink what we are doing and how well we are doing it.... This book is a terrific piece of work!" (Karl E. Weick, Administrative Science Quarterly)"
