Bah! Was really looking forward to reading this and was massively disappointed.

Rarely have I come across a bunch of more unlikeable twerpish characters. And that flaming 'We-form' used all the way through. Arrgh!

Are there any books that anyone has liked on the advertising industry [not chick-lit]. Like an up to date Mad Men, if you will.

MrsS - I liked it. I thought it was funny and humane and the 3rd person narrator didn't bother me - I thought it was original.

Have you read e? It's a bit out of date now but bloody hilarious.
