It is, indeed, Pohl. Here's a review-ette:


While we're on the subject of Pohl, might as well remark that his and Kornbluth's "Space Merchants" is both seminal and highly recommendable. (I haven't read the follow-up volume.)

Fredric Brown's "What Mad Universe" is pretty terrific too, for that matter.
