This is a gem. Those who love the Mad Men series will adore this book — it’s written by a real Mad Man from back in the day. He’d worked at small agencies and big agencies, and eventually opened his own and then wrote this memoir of that dog-eat-dog world.
(We just saw the episode where Sal gets fired. Having read this book, I know Roger Sterling wasn’t exactly exhibiting unusual behaviour!)
If you’re interested in the advertising industry or Mad Men, this is a must-read. It’s funny, smart, gossipy, and a brilliant insight of advertising in America in the 50s and 60s.
