Read A Book

People sometimes ask me what my favorite books about advertising are. Here you go:

1. e by Matthew Beaumont
A truly hilarious novel about a London ad agency in the throes of a big new business pitch. The gag is, it's written in the form of company emails. I know it sounds tedious but, trust me, it's terrific.

2. Then We Came To The End by Joshua Ferris
A very funny, and mildly frightening, novel about a Chicago ad agency that's going down the tubes.

Hope you enjoy.
