Rear cover fluff:
"Why be miserable? Dial P-L-E-A-S-U-R
Happiness guaranteed by Hedonics Inc. Sounds like a skin-game to you and me. But in James Gunn's future it's the slogan of a legitimate and sucessful business. Product: anything you need to make you happy.
The Joy Makers rips the lid off: describes pleasures that will make your skin tingle and your mind rattle, tells a story of men and women who are so hysterically happy they turn in strange new directions for diversion."
