In 1970 Jerry Della Femina wrote this gossip-filled, insider's account of working on Madison Avenue
during the golden age of advertising. It caused a sensation, became a bestseller and established
itself as a cult classic. Years later, it inspired the multi-award-winning drama Mad Men.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Beyond parody and quite brilliant, it's best read after a three-Martini lunch. - GQ Magazine

When there was some debate about whether something was accurate or not, Jerry said "You're not even close. It was so much worse than what you're seeing on the show." - Matthew Weiner, creator and executive producer of MAD MEN

Not since The Wire has a series generated as much commentary ad Matthew Weiner's ad-agency drama. Whether dazzled by the promise of buttoned-up sexuality and undone morals or just intoxicated by the cigarette smoke, it is hard not to be drawn in by the long-gone allure of Sterling Cooper. - Sunday Times

As close to genius as TV gets. - Metro

Smart, cool, funny, knowing, and visually gorgeous. - Daily Mirror

The best thing on TV since the Sopranos. - Grazia

Yes, it does live up to the hype. - Independent

The sharpest, slickest, best-looking drama. - Shortlist

A delicious gossip-heavy read about the golden age of advertising . . . a wonderful, knockabout romp. - GQ Magazine

Equivalent to spending an evening with Rodger Sterling . . . very funny indeed. - Time Out

Jerry Della Femina takes a flame-thrower to the idea that anybody would work in advertising for any other reason than to have a good time . . . a collection of hair-raising escapades, pranks and boorishness, and we are left to think that, even if the work was dull, at least Della Femina and his colleagues had an outrageous amount of fun. - Times Literary Supplement
