The textbook/bible/handbook to have in the ad business Jan. 13 2014
By David Esrati - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I make every employee and intern get a copy and read it.
Totally eclipses every other book on the subject of advertising.
Not only that- if you ever get to hear Luke speak in person- GO!
He's an incredible speaker/teacher and you'll learn more from him than anyone else you'll ever hear.
I've had and read the first, second and fourth edition. People keep stealing them.
It's that good.

Everything you need to know and understand about Conceptual thinking and Advertising is in this book. A MUST HAVE.
It is extremely well written and reminds me of the "Advertising Concept Book" by Pete Barry. (Which I definitely recommend picking up as well.)
