Frenemies – The Epic Disruption of the Ad Business (and Everything Else) by Ken Auletta

An intimate and profound reckoning with the changes buffeting the $2 trillion global advertising and marketing business from the perspective of its most powerful players by the bestselling author of Googled.

Complain about it though we might, without it the world would be a darker place.

Mad Men are turning into Math Men (and women – though too few), an instinctual art is transforming into a
science and we are a long way from the days of Don Draper. (44 attendees)
