Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"So side-splittingly funny, yet so dark with doom." — Boston Herald.

Between the three-martini lunches and Scotch around the clock, it's hard to believe that the advertising executives of the Sixties could remain conscious, let alone conduct business.

How did advertising executives in the Sixties stay sharp while boozing around the clock? The answer lies in this authentic document from Madison Avenue, circa 1962. "Side-splittingly funny." — Boston Herald.
