Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The Ferengi are businessmen, dedicated to the pursuit of profit, and other species tend to view them with mistrust. Nevertheless, they do have their own code of behaviour, to which they adhere as rigorously as the Bajorans follow the Prophets or the Klingons pursue honour. This code is encapsulated in 285 Rules of Acquisition, and in Legends of the Ferengi Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe tell the stories and myths behind the formulation of 76 of these rules. Since they were first brought to the attention of humans in Ira Steven Behr's The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition six more rules have been added, including such gems as the 211th Rule: "Employees are the rungs on the ladder of success. Don't hesitate to step on them."

The anecdotes, illustrated with many black and white stills from the shows, are brief, each one a couple of pages at most but they help to illuminate aspects of Ferengi history and culture that don't get much of an airing in the TV shows, and any fans of the Ferengi will find much to interest and amuse them here. This is a book to dip into rather than read from cover to cover and as such it is a light and entertaining read. --Elizabeth Sourbut

Synopsis

Guided by their Rules of Acquisition, the Ferengi have become the galaxy's most successful entrepreneurs. This work presents more than 70 tales featuring brave, avaricious Ferengi wrestling monetary gain from the jaws of poverty.

This was a very funny and good book, but it was still missing several Rules, which is kinda disappointing. Hmm, maybe I SHOULD have read the fine print first...

This is a much more substantial (and preferable) alternative to the previous work "The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition." which should bring some chuckles. Just as the Ferengi were never taken seriously, so should readers approach this book. Although it is presumably "official" Star Trek merchandise, readers may feel odd including the work's myriad puns and alliterations into the Star Trek universe. (E.g., How the name 'Saknussen' turns up in a journey to the center of Ferenginar.) But if you're one of those trekkers who could still laugh at Bill Shatner's 'Get a life!' skit, then this book is for you.
Quark said it best when he advised that his book 'be kept in your waste extraction unit and savored'.

Von Ein Kunde am 3. Dezember 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
When the Ferengi first appeared, they were portrayed as a rather vicious and ruthless race. But after a while, they became not as much a threat as a nuisance to the Federation. Bit by bit, they have become mostly merely just comic relief, the epitome being on DS9. This is a lighthearted alternative to the real-life attitude of Star Trek. The word "Legends" is misleading, but as the 239th Rule of Acquisition says, "Never be afraid to mislabel a product." Remember, don't let anybody read you this book if you're really into profit. Buy your own. Maybe two. Oh, frinx, just order a case and be done with it.

HASH(0x8ffb90a8) von 5 Sternen Great spoof on folklore anthologies 23. Oktober 2001
Von Rabbi Yonassan Gershom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"Legends of the Ferengi" is a hilarious spoof on fairy tales and folklore anthologies. As a folklorist myself, I found dozens of in-jokes that had me literally doubled over with laughter.
In the DS9 episode "Rules of Aquisition," the Ferengi Pel claims to know all 285 Rules of Aquisition plus the commentaries. This book gives you some of those commentaries --- at least, for the 70 Rules that were actually revealed on the series. The authors, Ira Behr and Robert Wolfe, wrote most of the DS9 Ferengi episodes. Now they give you the story behind each of the Rules, including #113, the "Rule that dare not speak its name."
You will also learn the first two words that any Ferengi learns in the Hew-Mon language ("No refunds"), The ten most famous insults in Ferengi history (see p.32) and the story of the infamous villain Drek, M.H.N.L.I.I. (May His Name Live In Infamy), who actually cut his prices and gave his customers BARGAINS, thereby causing the Ferengi economy to crash. Which is one reason why every Ferengi child is duly warned about the dangers of Real Life through supernatural horror stories about that bogeyman of bogeymen -- the Smiling Partner! And so on. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which has lots of great B&W stills from the series, too. Drek was right --- some things really ARE bargains!

HASH(0x8ffc9660) von 5 Sternen Absolutely wonderful! 19. Juli 2002
Von K. Wyatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"Legends of the Ferengi" is a much more thought out and fun book than it's previously released cousin "The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition." Every known rule from the series is listed with an excellent backstory, or history if you will, of each rule. The authors did a wonderful job with book and you can tell they had fun making the stories up. This is one of those rare trek extras where even a non hard core fan will get a kick out of it. Thank you to author's for some of the best laughs in trek fiction.

Von Jason Montgomery - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As a warning to potential buyers: if you bought the Rules of Acquistion book and then buy this one, Quark reminds you at one point that you were suckered into buying the same stuff twice. But besides that, this is a hilarious book with tons of Star Trek inside references. Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe wrote nearly all the "Ferengi episodes" of DS9 so this book is a real treat. So line Quark's pockets with latinum and get both.

HASH(0xa0761834) von 5 Sternen A pleasure to read, and official to boot 22. Oktober 2000
Von Jeff Cross - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While it doesn't cover all the Rules of Acquisition--only roughly a quarter of the alleged 285 were mentioned on the shows before the next-to-last episode of DS9 said they were no longer being taught--it's still a fun read. It consists of little parables and stories and games to illustrate what the Rules were trying to pass on, such as "There is no substitute for success" involving a riot at a public event on Ferenginar because a band called Success never appeared. To top it off, the DS9 producers made it "official" by mentioning some of the stuff that appears in it in episodes, like Sisko's middle name and a couple of popular Ferengi beverages.
