A best-selling author and advertising veteran shares a life´s lessons from the ad trade. Dave Marinaccio, cofounder and the creative director of LMO Advertising, is a veteran of the industry who, as a young man starting out, studied stand-up at Second City in Chicago. He later wrote an international best seller, All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Watching Star Trek. His equally entertaining new audiobook takes us inside the world of advertising, offering stories and observations from his three decades at some of America´s best-known agencies, working with clients from Pizza Hut to the Holocaust Museum. In short, punchy chapters, Dave pulls back the curtain and shares his insights on how marketing decisions are made and other lessons. His topics range from logos, the big idea, and selling perfume to how we undervalue our gifts, to do-overs, celebrities, and ´´meetingsmanship´´. And more than a few lessons turn out to be apt not just for business but for our stressed-out lives. Admen, Mad Men, and How Advertising Really Works is written to be easily digestible by interns, CEOS, or anyone who has ever watched a television commercial or clicked on a banner ad. Irreverent, packed with useful information, and unflinchingly honest, it is a serious business book by a seriously funny man and a must for anyone who lives, works, or plays in today´s commercial culture. 1.

Amazing (furry) lessons from a dog´s life. You´ll be enthralled by this story of a man and his lovable Labrador retriever, Hannah, and what their canine friendship can show us about life, grace, and long walks in the park. Hannah was Dave Burchett´s best friend. He couldn´t imagine starting a day without her tail wagging an energetic greeting, her body wiggling with sheer gratitude when her food dish was filled, and her unbridled enthusiasm for tennis balls. (How she fit three in her mouth at once, he’ll never know.) So when he first learned of Hannah´s cancer diagnosis, Dave decided to take whatever time he had left with Hannah to cherish the moments and capture his thoughts in a journal. As he wrote about his canine friend, he soon realized that Hannah was an able (and loving) mentor of faith, grace, kindness, and forgiveness. The lessons were invaluable: from being present to trusting the master. Dave started to see that the insights he was gaining were more than just journal entries about a family pet. Through Hannah´s antics, God was preparing Dave for life itself.
