Let's face it: advertising is one of those industries that make you itch to pull back the curtain and take a look behind the scenes. Adland does just that. It takes a global view of the development of advertising, and using first-hand accounts from key figures it takes a hard look into the future of advertising as well.

The book includes brand new interviews with many of the key players who shaped the world of advertising from the 1950s onwards, including:

Jean-Marie Dru, President and CEO, TBWA;
Phil Dusenberry, BBDO creative legend;
John Hegarty, Chairman and Worldwide Creative Director, BBH;
Maurice Levy, President, Publicis Group;
George Lois, Madison Avenue art director;

Sir Alan Parker, film director, who talks about his early career in advertising in the 1970s;
Emanuele Pirella, Italian copywriting guru;
Keith Reinhard, Chairman Emeritus of DDB Worldwide;
Kevin Roberts, CEO Worldwide, Saatchi & Saatchi;
