Best book on advertising one can buy. I wasn't disappointed once from page 1 till the end. The author is clear and concise and, more important, knows what he's talking about. If you wanna become a copywriter or an art director or you're simply interested in knowing how advertising works and see some immortal masterpieces this is the book for you. To be honest, this is a book for everyone - it's pure genius! If you're still wondering ... yes, it's worth every penny.
An excellent survey approach to both modern advertising campaigns and the components that make them work. Long read, great reference material, and very inspiring! One of the best advertising books I've found!
I found this work to be so seminal, that I have come to consider it a field manual for the discipline of advertising and related disciplines of communicating brands' propositions. Clients will find it particularly useful because it sets the standard for the practice, emphasizes and clarifies clients' critical role in creative advertising, and also how to engage their agencies properly. Advertising professionals at all levels will find it particularly useful as it is indispensable, and navigational. I'm glad Pete wrote this at this time.....at least the young bloods won't make some of the mistakes we did. Excellent work!!!
It's such a good book that I've borrowed it from the library twice, before buying it. Simple rules to follow, great examples, good examplations of creative approaches. Everything a creative need to "Think now, design later" and come up with great ideas. Absolutely worth it.
This is a great one! First of all it is visually intriguing. The drawing style the author decides to use to represent each and every image in the book is an escamotage that allow us to get straight into the second reading level, without being dazed by the colours, the textures or whatever makes ads so attractive. This way its like we already know something more even before starting reading the book! Moreover the content is not at all superficial. This is a real text book, from A to Z, about advertising, just extremely exciting!
