Editorial Reviews


Media: From Chaos to Clarity offers a refreshing and optimistic perspective for marketers navigating today s very turbulent media waters. This book goes beyond the disruptions caused by new technologies and appropriately challenges conventional media wisdom. It provides a new framework that better explains the evolving consumer experience, at a time when more accountability is being demanded from media and marketing. As a marketing practitioner, I am inspired by the Five Global Truths. --Michael Moynihan, Vice President of Marketing and Consumer Communication, LEGO Systems, Inc.

Judy Franks has created a wonderful guide to sense-making in the fractured 21st century media universe. Her survey of the landscape adds a measure of calm to the confusion and serves as an antidote to the predictions of calamity. This is a must- read for anyone in the world of content creation. --Charles Whitaker Helen Gurley Brown Magazine Research Chair, Medill Northwestern University

Judy has explained the changes in media and communications in terms we ve never used before. She understands networks and systems and circles and synergy and interactions, where most media and marketing communications people still think in lines and arrows and outputs. --Don Schultz, PhD. Professor, Medill Northwestern University and Author IMC: The Next Generation

This is a very good book. The viewpoints are very inspiring. The way we deploy media is totally different from what it used to be and the author manages to put some great insights in this chaos. I benefits a lot from it. Totally worth reading. And it is short. It took me less than 2 hours.

There have been more changes in the media landscape over the past 10 years than in the previous 100. No wonder that confusion reigns among marketers! Judy's book provides a framework for thinking about media and taking advantage of new opportunities while reminding us of certain truth's that haven't changed (Content is King). A great read for marketers of all types.

Full disclosure: I am a big fan Judy's book and work, so I am a _bit_ biased. While I think the "Accessible. Insightful. Clarifying." I put in the subject is a good summary of what she tees up in this book, ultimately, the big takeaway/benefit from this book: reassuring.
In the brand/marketing world in which I work, there is a cacophony of voices screaming how everything is broken. I don't think it's necessarily broken, but there certainly are a lot of questions out there. I think that the ideas in Judy's book provide a high level view that helps put everything in context, in a very holistic way, yet these same ideas are well grounded in logic, history and common sense. I found it to be quite valuable. So much so that it became required reading on the course syllabus for the brand-related class I teach.
