9780143125204: The Social Climber's Bible: A Book of Manners, Practical Tips, and Spiritual Advice for the Upwardly Mobile

Welcome fledging Social Climbers! Allow us to show you the way.

Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it, so what's the big deal? You shouldn't be punished for wanting to improve your lot in life! This is America, after all. In the grand tradition of True Prep and The Hipster Handbook, The Social Climber's Bible will teach you everything you need to know to become a pro Mountaineer:

  • The Art of Social Climbing at gallery openings, cocktail parties, and funerals
  • Social Climbing as a family
  • How to handle sex, dating, marriage, and love
  • Your social climbing IQ and how to improve it
  • How to spot a Big Fish, Whale, Turtle or Unicorn, and what they can do for you
Johnson & Johnson heiress Jazz Johnson is a lifelong insider in that rarefied world that fans of both Downton Abbey and Gossip Girl dream about. Raconteur Dirk Wittenborn is old enough to remember when sex was safe and cocaine wasn't addictive. In short, Jazz belongs to some of the most exclusive clubs in the world, whereas Dirk has been kicked out of them. Who better to guide you?

From the Inside Flap:

Dear Fledgling Climber:

You've just opened a book that can change your life. Read on at your own risk, because once you've gotten to the last page, we promise you will have become so popular you won't recognize yourself. Are you ready to be transformed into the kind of person who snubbed you at parties and you used to envy? Are you prepared for all the fun you'll have mastering the secrets of becoming popular with those who can make your dreams come true overnight?

We invite you to learn the lost art of social climbing. Let us teach you the skills and ethical flexibility that will make you a hit at any and all social gatherings, from cocktail parties to funerals. Know the joys of social climbing as a family and learn the dos and don'ts of guiltlessly and gracefully ditching all those worn-out suburban friends and college pals holding you back from making the kind of superficial friends everybody needs to know the thrill of getting to the top.

We can't climb for you, but we do know all the shortcuts.

Sincerely,
The Social Climber's Bible

About the Author:

JAZZ JOHNSON is a graduate of Barnard College, manages her family estate, serves as Master of Fox Hounds, and raises heritage turkeys. She hopes that collaborating with her uncle, Dirk, on The Social Climber's Bible does not get her kicked out of any of the clubs she belongs to.

DIRK WITTENBORN is a novelist (Fierce People, Pharmakon), screenwriter and the Emmy-nominated producer of the HBO documentary, Born Rich. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter and summers on the wrong side of the tracks in East Hampton, NY.
