George Lois is one the more celebrated ad men from the early days of advertising. He no doubt had great talent and was prolific. Unfortunately he apparently took credit for as many ideas that were created by others as he created himself.

Apparently George Lois' biggest idea was to take credit for others' work.

Just a warning dont buy this book of burgled ideas. George Lois was someone I looked up to until I delved deeper in to the origin of the Volkswagen creative. He stole credit for that. That and so many other big ideas. I can not recommend a book on ideas by a man that stole them. Shame Mr. Lois.

Format: Hardcover
Having worked closely with George in the mid 70's on two major accounts, I was shocked when he repeatedly took credit, not only for the "great Ideas" he conceived, but also for the numerous creative executions of those ideas by others. The NYC OTB "personality" campaign circa 1975 comes to mind. Giving credit to the hard work and creativity of others on that and other similar high profile and successful campaigns would have been the right thing to do.

Nice book for a coffee table. However, being an art student, you learn where most modern icons get their inspiration. I like this better than "Damn Good Advice".
