Just Doing It A History Of Advertising from the Author: Pia Elliott. The purpose of the book is to provide an overall view of advertising in the twentieth century while filling in the gap of information that exists in Italy ? where just a few names are known. The book also provides a leading thread about those professionals who, in the second half of the 20th century, were the protagonists of the creative revolution and whose influence has been seminal on both American and English advertising. The book has no historical intentions nor aims at classifying people into schools or categories (as such an approach would be pretentious and inadequate in a profession so deeply entangled with economics and consumer attitudes). The content in brief: The book is made up of short biographies of famous and well known advertising people ? mainly art directors and copywriters ? interspersed with a few explanatory chapters that are simply summaries on certain subjects. For instance The Big Agencies outlines the origins of historical agencies, such as J.W. Thompson, BBDO, and Young & Rubicam. The State of Things explains what happened after the (so called) Creative Revolution. The Spot-Makers presents people like Howard Zieff, Joe Pytka, Rick Levine, and Bob Giraldi. Old School Ties and Colonels is about British advertising before Collett Dickinson and Pearce. La Grande Parade depicts the peculiarities of French advertising and Carosello and its Victims explains the unusual features of the Italian Carosello (an early TV format that hosted commercials), etc. Biographies are structured differently along the lines of individual stories and, generally, tend to highlight the meaningful events in one s career rather than their early life and experiences. This way of telling a story is, of course, somewhat influenced by the author s experiences and point of view and represents the original aspect of the book. Among the influentials , Americans and Britons outnumber French and Italians. A final section with Contributions by various authors and famous copywriters: Gossage, Della Femina, Abbott, Séguéla, Marcantonio, Pirella, etc. completes the book.

Where The Suckers Moon from the Author: Randall Rothenberg. "For all the right reasons." "Cars that can." "What to Drive." "The perfect Car for an Imperfect World." Only one of these slogans would be chosen by Subaru of America to sell its cars in the recession year of 1991. As six advertising agencies scrambled for the account and the winner tried to churn out the Big Idea that would install Subaru in the collective national unconscious, Randall Rothenberg was there, observing every nuance of the chaos, comedy, creativity, and egotism that made up an ad campaign. One can read Rothenberg's bok as the behind-the-scenes chronicle of the brief and very troubled marriage between a beleaguered automobile company and Wieden & Kennedy, an aggressively hip ad agency whose creative director despised cars. One can read it as a history of advertising's journey from the conventionally upbeat slogan "Helps Build Strong Bodies 12 Ways" to the supercool nineties minimalism of "Bo Knows." Either way, Where the Suckers Moon is a face-paced, insightful, and occasionally appalling look at an industry whose obsession with image has affected our entireculture.

What Do You Think About It from the Author: Warren O. Monroe. A Collection of Daily Thoughts The word thought generally refers to any mental or intellectual activity involving an individual's subjective consciousness. It can refer either to the act of thinking or the resulting ideas or arrangement of ideas. Over the past few years I've put my thoughts down on paper and shared them with family and friends. Some said to me "it's too long", some said to me "I've heard that before" and some just said nothing as if my thoughts were delivered and fallen into a black hole. On the other hand there were those who cheered me on and encouraged me to keep distributing my thoughts and consider some day writing a book. "What Do You Think About It" is a labor of love collection of my best 31weekly thoughts for your reading enjoyment. In addition, you can take an active part in my literary endeavor by writing down your thoughts at the end of each chapter. One difference between humans and other animals is our ability to think, process our thoughts and make life changing decisions on the results. As you read and hopefully enjoy my book apply your thoughts to the message intended in each chapter. It's not really our efforts that define us; it's our ability to open our minds and hearts to the depths of our true thoughts and honest feelings. Paracelsus, renaissance period physician, chemist, and surgeon wrote; thoughts are free and subject to no rule. On them rest the freedom of a man and they tower above the light of nature . . . create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy from which new art flows. This book represents a small piece of my heaven, my new firmament, my new source of energy from which my new art will flow. I hope you enjoy all my thoughts but I don't expect you will just sail away on a literary cruise navigated by everything I've written. So I've provided space at the end of each chapter for your thoughts on each topic. Hence the title, "What Do You Think About It" ...Bon Voyage
