Product Description

From the Back Cover

Updated fourth edition of the best-selling guide now covers all media: digital, social, and traditional

Veteran copywriter Luke Sullivan returns with a nearly all-new fourth edition of his classic guide to advertising. Part how-to and part exposé, Hey Whipple, Squeeze This! is an insider's guide to coming up with great ideas as well as an unapologetic send-up of all that's heavy-handed, dim-witted, and ineffectual in the industry.

Updated to cover the digital revolution in advertising, this Fourth Edition now includes good examples and best practices in all the new and emerging media: from social media to traditional, direct marketing to experiential, outdoor advertising to mobile. You'll get authoritative advice and guidelines on creating great ideas for both digital and traditional media, all while Sullivan regales you with hilarious industry war stories.

Praise for the first edition

"Luke Sullivan writes a perfect lesson in advertising for newcomers—and a familiarand laughably painful reminiscence for those of us entrenched in this noble and often crazy profession."
Lee Clow, Chairman and Global Director, TBWA\Worldwide

"This business is changing like crazy, but Luke Sullivan's advice is timeless. If you're good at advertising, this book will make you better. If you're great, it'll make you greater."
Mike Hughes, President, The Martin Agency

"Luke's reflections on the advertising industry make me wish I could do it all over again. Except for that 'scab' story in Chapter 11."
Bob Barrie, Barrie D'Rozario Murphy

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.)
