Book Description:
Presented as a miraculous cure all, Tono Bungay is in fact nothing other than a pleasant tasting liquid with no positive effects. Nonetheless, when the young George Ponderevo is employed by his uncle Edward to help market this ineffective medicine, he finds his life overwhelmed by its sudden success. Soon the worthless substance is turned into a formidable fortune as society becomes convinced of the merits of Tono Bungay through a combination of skilled advertising and public credulity.

Includes a newly established text, a full biographical essay on Wells, a list of further reading, and detailed notes
Edward Mendelson s introduction explores the many ways in which Tono Bungay satirizes the fictions and delusions that shape modern life
