Shakespeare was just another hack! This book rocks! And it's not only for aspiring ad people and juniors - actually every senior should read it! The only problem with this book is that it's just a teaser for Neil French's book...
EDIT: Yes, I STILL want to read Neil French's book after the whole female creative affair. Idiots...
P.S: I absolutely agree with Christopher Locke when he says that the couple of pages by Brian Millar is worth the price of the book itself. I don't know the guy but he should really write a book if he didn't write one already
