The hit TV show Mad Men takes a look at the hip and cool world of 1960s Madison Avenue advertsing.
James P. Othmer has written a highly entertaining look back at his career in the advertising business, including a stint as Creative Director at mega firm Young & Rubicam.
James is a terrific writer, incredibly witty and funny. He tells some great stories about the creative process, clients and office dynamics. He also takes a look forward, at the future of advertsing itself. Like the political would we love so much, advertising has been turned on its head by new digital technologies.
This is an excellent read and reminds us of just how under assault we are each and every day by advertising images. This is a great look behind the curtain.
