Fasten your seat belts for a dizzy ride not into the future, but the here and now! Byrdwhistle is a highly profitable mail order company where only married couples are employed, with varying hours that makes it possible for one, or the other, to be home when the kids come home from school. Byrdwhistles do not work, they play together and with other spouse's permission can relax in company sponsored "love rooms."You'll love Heyman Hyman Youman, the 62-year old maverick who created this utopia where jobs are rotated regularly, and no matter what job you do, husbands and wives, together, earn the median family income plus a spectacular share in the profit bonuses. All the new married employees have to do is pass an entrance exam based on Abraham Maslow's Theory Z management philosophy and become a transcender. But all hell breaks loose when Ralph Theimost, CEO of WIN Incorporated, a billion-dollar conglomerate, and Ronald Coldaxe, his Director of Acquisitions, are determined to take over stock control of Byrdwhistle from the majority stock holder, Thornton Byrd, now in his 70s, who sleeps with Youman's wife, occasionally. Even Coldaxe's wife, M'mm, becomes a pawn in the battle of wits as they try to make Byrdwhistle conform to old-style economic reality. Robert Rimmer graduated from Bates College with a multi-discipline degree in English, Psychology and Philosophy and later obtained an MBA from Harvard. His first two novels, The Rebellion of Yale Marratt and That Girl from Boston, were written before 1960 and were considered much too controversial to publish. However, after years of mail-order sales The Harrad Experiment was published by Bantam in 1967 and was finally available to a wide audience. Within a year over a million copies had been sold. More novels followed, including Proposition 31. All of these novels explored alternatives to traditional relationships and sexuality, subjects very much at the forefront of the public's interest in the 1970s. Now in his eighties, Bob Rimmer, always in the vanguard in his advocacy of alternatives to the traditional monogamous relationship, becomes one of the first authors to recognize the potential of the Internet to bring his books to millions of new readers. With 14 novels to his credit and still going strong, Rimmer has several novels in the works that he believes will benefit from the enormous potential of print-on-demand technology and the Internet.
