'Browsing through this facinating book will certainly evoke memories as products and their slogans are revealed.' (County Times, Welshpool) 'With more gorgeous images than you can shake a stick at, it's a great addition to that new coffee table you bought after seeing the Ikea ad on TV, and now it's out in paperback, it won't break the legs of the table either.' (Ideasfactory) 'Berger's book contains stunning full-page colour reproductions of advertisements accompanied by captions that explain each ad's impact on society...He also offers insightful interviews with a handful of the industry's major players...The result is a book that's a lot like advertising: big, bold, entertaining and full of itself.' (Azure) 'Advertising Today provides something new: a chronological survey of the industry that also charts the seismic changes in our social landscape over the past 50 years.' (Azure)
