a very entertaining take on advertising. made me wonder at quite a few places if the whole industry operates on beer and pizzas and occasional/wishful onsite.

‘Welcome to advertising. Now get lost!’ by Omkar Sane - review by Shruti Gandha, on HappyReading Blog

It’s said that for an advertising professional, life isn’t complete until and unless you have read and re-read every single word of the bible of advertising- ‘Ogilvy on Advertising’. It’s true, for I am yet to meet anyone who doesn’t abide by this book. So when I came across ‘welcome to advertising. now get lost’ it seemed a refreshing change from the age-old Ogilvy ke advertising nuske.

And well,

If you're into advertising, this book will make you laugh, if not, you'll wonder how a whole industry operates on beer and pizzas. It's funny, cynical and sharp-witted! A great read! I think it surely missed out on some vital chapters like- the interview and salary negotiation bit as also the increments! But for the latter, Omkar would've had to atleast survive for a year in Advertising... think he's not much of a beer-drinker, pizza-tucker!

Definitely not literature, but it was ok. Very silly, and some pretty good jokes. I know nothing about advertising but after reading this book I understand a bit of it and that was helpful. I also saw the funnier side of advertising and it definitely changed my view on it. A quick and funny read, to anyone interested in advertising.

Can skip, but isn't bad to kill time.... Especially if you empathise or have borne the perils of a creative job.

A humourous take on the mad-house we call the ad agency. Indulge in it. There are plenty of laughs along the way.
