New Book, Fresh Outlook
"The best clients trust the process. They collaborate and they focus on making great work happen – especially within their organizations." -Rob Schwartz (Ad Brain)
My first ebook is a collection of 18 interviews. Ad Brains: Conversations with Advertising’s Icons, Rebels, and Rulers is now available for $10 from Amazon.com, Kobo.com, Barnes & Noble, and Apple Books, and Google Play.
I started interviewing people when I was 18 years old and a freshman at Franklin & Marshall College. One thing I know about myself—I have a journalist's temperament, which I bring to the ad business, sometimes successfully. In this new collection of 18 interviews with 19 advertising professionals, there's a series of successful moments where people I admire and respect get a chance to wax poetic about life, business, art, and more.
I hope you are ready to buy the book today, to read it, gift it, and review it. It's a slim collection but one that took a dozen years to make.
