Overview

"I wrote the book on advertising," is not a 101 effort but more of an insight into the creative jobs -- the good, the bad and the ugly. It includes "readmits" (soundbites) in the margins from fifty other professionals and students. And there are many MadMan stories that he experienced. Like the day 25 Hells' Angels showed up in the lobby of the Chryslers Building and asked for him. Or the day a baby elephant walked past his office on the 10th floor of DFS.


It's a "text book" written to be read cover-to-cover OR opened to any page to read a topic. Not only are the pages numbered but the paragraphs are too for reference. There is an index in the back. The book contains nearly 500 photos and graphics with links to TV commercials on my YouTube channel.


Hardcover. 160 pages. Passing it forward.
