Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I worked on New & Improved, my first novel, for over ten years. It was not until I joined a writers' group that I really hunkered down and finished the manuscript and began the process of getting it edited (very important!) and formatted on Create Space to be published on Amazon/Kindle.

Working with several smart people, I am very pleased with how my novel turned out.  The cover is exciting and well, it LOOKS like a book!

I encourage anyone "with a book in you" to start today to create your book.  You will be thrilled when it is "born" and begins to sell on Amazon.

Walter Thompson to create award-winning ad campaigns for Sony, Clorox, Lipton and other successful brands. Engler experienced their superior powers of observation, creativity and professional courage in action many times. Ben Coleman is a composite of these brilliant advertising craftsmen and this story could have happened. Visit Peter Engler at www.granthampress.com.

More About the Author

Peter Engler has now published a fictional novel, "New and Improved! A Political Thriller" and a work of non-fiction, a valuable and informative career guide, "Your Crystal Clear Career Path" for men and women of all ages who are in or contemplating a job or career change.

I grew up in New Jersey, graduated from Bucknell University ('66)with an English Literature degree, flew Navy airplanes in Vietnam in the late 60's, then joined the advertising industry where I had the thrilling opportunity to work with the same kind of people with whom I flew in the Navy; smart, courageous, fun and funny!

I directed advertising and marketing campaigns for agencies in New York City and San Francisco, was VP Marketing at Citibank in the 80's and then spent ten years as an executive recruiter helping build senior executive teams at tech firms.

For the last eight years, I have been an executive (and college grad) career coach in my own firm, Engler Career Group. I help people "find rewarding work, not just a job" and enjoy the work very much.

I hope you enjoy both books; one fun and one more pragmatic and applicable to everyone's career.

I'm proud that my father has finished his book after a decade of plotting, writing, tweaking and publishing. I have enjoyed watching him develop the story he wanted to write and hope that you will appreciate it enough to recommend to others.

Definitely a political thriller. While this book is fiction; the story and characters seem very real.
I loved the twists and turns that the author came up with. I was imagining who would play each
character, if there would be a movie made. Both men and women would enjoy this book.

New and Improved is not only a ride through history and a time of "AD MEN".... it leaves you guessing and pondering every step of the way... This story exceeded my expectations, through twists and turns...full of suspense, action, and had a deeper meaning to it. We start in a NYC and are taking through the deep layered world of politics and Washington DC. The plot is well paced, and the writing is detailed but thrilling, making you feel as if you're really there, watching these events unfold. I recommend it with 5 stars.

This is a terrific read! The author is a VERY good writer. He does dialogue perfectly and he's constructed a plot that is absolutely ingenious.

The book is clever, but it's also smart. It held my interest all the way to the end, which is rare.

You will not be disappointed!

I generally read non-fiction, but heard about this from colleagues in the ad business. Gave it a try and about missed my stop on the train while reading it. Frighteningly believable and well written to the very end.

In his new novel, New and Improved, Peter Engler has taken his extensive knowledge as a former Navy pilot and ad man to construct a story of political intrigue filled with captivating characters as his protagonist first discovers and then attempts to thwart a sinister plot to pump new life into the Cold War by assassinating the President. Don't open this book if you want to go to sleep early; it will keep you up turning pages.

I enjoyed the plot of this story and could relate to several things mentioned in it, as I am from the same era as the author. For a first effort, I thought this book was very well done. It is an easy read and I recommend it to those who enjoy this type of story.

Length: 1:04 Mins
New & Improved! A Political Thriller is a fast ride through political intrigue, good guys and really bad guys playing a deadly game of world domination. The setting is a fictionalized presidential election in the near past of the United States. Peter's writing puts you in the thick of things as the hero, Ad Guy, Ben Coleman, puzzles out the way to foil the evil about to befall the President. It is the clever twists and turns that make this book so much fun. I loved the high tech gadgets, super nasty villains, and the smart dialog. If you love books by Tom Clancy or you are a fan of "Homeland" -- read this book. I am looking forward to more thrillers from Peter.
