The Discourse of Advertising is a very readable book that is well suited for undergraduate students whatever their academic background (literature, linguistics, cultural studies, communication studies, etc.). The balance between theory and practice is excellent. Advertising examples are mostly recent, and taken from a variety of supports (e.g. billboards, Internet, TV, magazines). The application of theoretical concepts to ads and literature provides a better understanding of these concepts, and especially allows for the distinction between the two genres. An excellent introductory tool not only to the field of advertising but also to the larger field of discursive studies in general, provided that instructors complete it with examples of ads particularly meaningful for their students..

Many works that deal with advertising texts operate on an elementary, purely descriptive level aimed at providing AS/A2-level English or Media Studies students with a basic appreciation of advertising methodologies. Alternatively, they are written by academics and from a sociological perspective and, as such, they engage to a great extent in political comment. The Discourse of Advertising is a scholarly yet very accessible exploration of the linguistic and semiotic elements of, and techniques employed in, advertising and as such this book provides an excellent point of reference to students, researchers and commentators interested in this topic.
