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

About the Author

Judy joined the Northwestern University faculty in 2008 following a 23-year career in Chicago’s leading Advertising and Media Services Agencies where she rose to the executive ranks across both the media and creative strategy disciplines. Judy has since been named among the Top 100 Faculty of Northwestern University by Northwestern University student body for three consecutive academic years. In addition to her teaching, Judy regularly shares her unique perspective on the media as a keynote speaker at industry conferences and also through her consulting firm, The Marketing Democracy. To learn more, feel free to visit The Marketing Democracy at: www.themarketingdemocracy.com and/or follow Judy on Twitter: @judyfranks. Judy's career began in an analog media world and she refers to her more recent experiences as "...an analog girl who 'survived' and actually now thrives in a digital world." Judy focuses her time and research on unearthing patterns of cooperation between existing and emerging media so that everyone can get The Big Picture. Judy is currently researching Binge TV viewing and how the transformation of television consumption patterns will impact advertising exposures and effects. In addition to writing Media: From Chaos to Clarity, Judy has also been published in collegiate textbooks and numerous marketing industry trade publications as well as The Huffington Post. Judy lives on the North Shore of Chicago with her husband, Steve and their son James. She teaches onsite at Northwestern University's Evanston and Chicago campuses as well as online.

Format: Paperback
As an educator, it is challenging to take complex concepts and make them come alive to the reader. Judy Franks has this talent. In her book, she is able to tell us - the reader - about the past and future of media and its impact on our lives and the organizations we use in our business and personal lives. It is a fun read where you learn something important in every chapter. I highly recommend this book to better understand media and its impact n our lives. The media change is here...now we must embrace and use it in our business and personal lives.

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.
