Born in San Francisco, Trader Vic (or Victor Jules Bergeron Jr) founded a chain of Tiki-themed bars and claimed to have invented the Mai Tai.
From the dust jacket: 'Here is a complete guide for amateurs and professionals alike- over 1,500 recipes prepared by a master mixer. You'll find directions on how to make everything from Alexanders to Zombies. Writing in a style as pungent as one of his own Gin Slings, Vic also includes several chapters of advice for bartenders, covering both the joys and the perils of bartending, how to be a good host, and how to handle guests who can't handle your drinks.'
