Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Updated fourth edition of the best-selling guide now covers all media: digital, social, and traditional

Veteran copywriter Luke Sullivan returns with a nearly all-new fourth edition of his classic guide to advertising. Part how-to and part exposé, Hey Whipple, Squeeze This! is an insider's guide to coming up with great ideas as well as an unapologetic send-up of all that's heavy-handed, dim-witted, and ineffectual in the industry.

Updated to cover the digital revolution in advertising, this Fourth Edition now includes good examples and best practices in all the new and emerging media: from social media to traditional, direct marketing to experiential, outdoor advertising to mobile. You'll get authoritative advice and guidelines on creating great ideas for both digital and traditional media, all while Sullivan regales you with hilarious industry war stories.

Praise for the first edition

"Luke Sullivan writes a perfect lesson in advertising for newcomers—and a familiarand laughably painful reminiscence for those of us entrenched in this noble and often crazy profession."
Lee Clow, Chairman and Global Director, TBWA\Worldwide

"This business is changing like crazy, but Luke Sullivan's advice is timeless. If you're good at advertising, this book will make you better. If you're great, it'll make you greater."
Mike Hughes, President, The Martin Agency

"Luke's reflections on the advertising industry make me wish I could do it all over again. Except for that 'scab' story in Chapter 11."
Bob Barrie, Barrie D'Rozario Murphy

More About the Author

Luke Sullivan just released his second book, titled "Thirty Rooms To Hide In: Insanity, Addiction and Rock 'n' Roll in the Shadow of the Mayo Clinic." AUTHOR STATEMENT: "'The Shining,' ... but funnier. That's about the best way I can describe the book. It's the story of growing up with my five brothers in a big dark house in Minnesota back in the '50s and '60s. Even with winters raging outside and our father raging inside, we still managed to have a wildly fun, thoroughly dysfunctional time growing up, thanks to the protection of our mother. With dark humor as the coin of our realm, and the Beatles as true north on our compass of Cool, we made movies, started a rock & roll band, and wise-cracked our way though a grim landscape of our father's insanity, Eisenhower's Cold War, fallout shelters, and JFK's assassination."

I make every employee and intern get a copy and read it.
Totally eclipses every other book on the subject of advertising.
Not only that- if you ever get to hear Luke speak in person- GO!
He's an incredible speaker/teacher and you'll learn more from him than anyone else you'll ever hear.
I've had and read the first, second and fourth edition. People keep stealing them.
It's that good.

Everything you need to know and understand about Conceptual thinking and Advertising is in this book. A MUST HAVE.
It is extremely well written and reminds me of the "Advertising Concept Book" by Pete Barry. (Which I definitely recommend picking up as well.)

I was trying to get a job as a copywriter for a few months. Then I bought and devoured this book. Then I got a job. I'm not a scientist, but I'm pretty sure that proves that this book will get you a job.

I have worked as a graphic designer for three years now, and I regret not reading this book earlier. Here you can learn about classic printed ads, as well as Facebook, Twitter and so on. Luke shares valuable tips and good advise, written in a humorous way, and in a language that is easy to read even if english is not your mother language. I will definitly recomend this book to everybody who wants to learn a bit more about advertising.
