An all time SF classic, first published in 1952.
"Meet Mitchell Courtenay -- Copysmith Star Class -- a man of no small importance in the Madison Avenue pecking order. His latest assignment: create an advertising campaign that will sell the American people on emigrating to Venus.
It's an uphill fight all the way for Courtenay, as he contends with enemies in rival agencies, with underground ecology groups -- and with a wife who won't come home unless he quits his job!
And what if Courtenay is successful? Suppose the climate of Venus proves harsh and univiting? And how will the colonists from Earth feel when they learn they will have to survive as best they can, with no help from home?
Mitchell Courtenay didn't care as long as he did his job and got his bonus. Then someone tried to sell him a bill of goods, and Mitch suddenly had to work hard to keep on living!"; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
