Product Description

Jerry Della Femina has worked in the advertising industry for over fifty years. He currently runs Della Femina Rothschild Jeary and Partners in New York. He was an advisor on Season One of Mad Men.

In 1970 Jerry Della Femina wrote this gossip-filled, insider's account of working on Madison Avenue
during the golden age of advertising. It caused a sensation, became a bestseller and established
itself as a cult classic. Years later, it inspired the multi-award-winning drama Mad Men.

'Beyond parody and quite brilliant, it's best enjoyed after a three-Martini lunch.'
GQ Magazine

'The 'Mad Men' of this book were not mad at all. They were clever and articulate proponents of the American Dream. The book evokes a long-lost era of American self-confidence and optimism, and helps explain how America became a cultural icon.'
Lord Saatchi

In 1970 Jerry Della Femina wrote this gossip-filled, insider's account of working on Madison Avenue during the golden age of advertising. It caused a sensation, became a bestseller and established itself as a cult classic. Years later, it inspired the multi-award-winning drama Mad Men.

'When there was some debate about whether something was accurate or not, Jerry said "You're not even close. It was so much worse than what you're seeing on the show."'
Matthew Weiner, creator and executive producer of Mad Men

A sharp, funny and deliciously gossipy guide to the glory days of advertising in 1960s New York - an inspiration for the hit TV series MAD MEN

Beyond parody and quite brilliant, it's best read
after a three-Martini lunch.

When there was some debate about whether something was accurate or not, Jerry said "You're not even close. It was so much worse than what you're seeing on the show."Not since The Wire has a series generated as much commentary ad Matthew Weiner's ad-agency drama. Whether dazzled by the promise of buttoned-up sexuality and undone morals or just intoxicated by the cigarette smoke, it is hard not to be drawn in by the long-gone allure of Sterling Cooper.As close to genius as TV gets.Smart, cool, funny, knowing, and visually gorgeous.The best thing on TV since the Sopranos.Yes, it does live up to the hype.The sharpest, slickest, best-looking drama.A delicious gossip-heavy read about the golden age of advertising . . . a wonderful, knockabout romp.Equivalent to spending an evening with Rodger Sterling . . . very funny indeed.Jerry Della Femina takes a flame-thrower to the idea that anybody would work in advertising for any other reason than to have a good time . . . a collection of hair-raising escapades, pranks and boorishness, and we are left to think that, even if the work was dull, at least Della Femina and his colleagues had an outrageous amount of fun.
