In the future, technology advances to the point where anything is possible. Most spouses are tailored-made to their partner's tastes and desires. Some spouses even have attachments. Fashion is delivered to subscribers on a daily basis, and clothes are disposable. Even products like hallucinogenic toilet paper and barbituated deodorant make the most mundane tasks fun and exciting.

There is a bad side to all those new products though, and that bad side is salespeople. Salespeople are needed to introduce the amazing innovations to the public and force them on unsuspecting buyers.

One day, Vyla, a receptionist at a company that is targeted by many of those salespeople, is singled out at work to attend a seminar on how to deal with the aggressive sales tactics. She learns many things at that seminar, and very few of them relate to dealing with salesman.

This edition also includes a bonus short story, The Sixth-Level Executive. Codly Purppen never intended to go to work. He was to happy enjoying his easy carefree days of getting paid simply to be available. Then something happens to the five levels of executives above him, and he is called into work. He doesn't even know what his company does.
