Peeing With David Ogilvy

Short Stories from my "Mad Men" Years

by Harvey Gabor

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
My book of short stories is about my "Mad Men's" career during advertising's "Golden Era." Some are humorous, some are touching. All of them are true stories with a little bit of writer's "body English."
My book encapsulates my 37 wonderful and sometimes torturous career in creating advertising at some of the top agencies in New York. I was privileged to work in the "Mad Men" golden years of the 60's when I believe the most creative advertising was done. My credo, as a creative director, is, "You've gota touch a nerve. Leave them crying, laughing or sad or inspired. Today with the invention of "Computer Generation" (which is a good thing) most creatives have been seduced by ZOOM, POW, SHAZAM. All of it is certainly exciting; it's just not memorable. I believe my book of short stories will touch that nerve. Mostly, I believe that my book has the most important ingredient of all. You won't forget it.
