"The true future of marketing will be about brands and their ability to have a direct relationship with their consumers. The trick, as so well explained in Tell The Truth, is that brands have to be honest brutally honest. Truth in advertising? Truth in marketing? It hasn’t really happened, but now it can.

"Truth in advertising is no longer an oxymoron; it's an absolute necessity if a brand wishes to compete in today's increasingly transparent marketplace. Brands will be judged not based on what they say, but what they do; not the promises they make, but the ones they keep. This book is the first step toward your enlightenment."

I found Tell the Truth a lucid and enjoyable read. Underman and Baskin provide original thinking, clear writing and lots of examples to help the reader unlearn prevailing marketing dogma that was shaped during the media monopoly of the last century. Chief among these beliefs is the notion that truth is optional.
While Tell the Truth makes a compelling case for why truth is the most powerful marketing tool we have, it's not an esoteric ethical treatise. It's a hands-on field guide, full of practical advice for implementing truth in your day-to-day marketing efforts.
If you are trying to get your head around the changes taking place in marketing today, start here. Tell the Truth will help you put the new rules of marketing to work for your brand. I've made it required reading in my company. I hope Tell the Truth will be for today's generation of marketers what Ogilvy on Advertising was for previous generations.
