The real Mad Men: tales of fear and loathing from Madison Avenue
Before the book was published, New York magazine did a two-part excerpt, a look at how advertising agencies work. I read the book originally in the early seventies (and it made me glad I was no longer considering that business for a long-term career). In re-reading the excerpts from New York I am surprised at how much I remembered, even after 45 years. It made an impression, just as the television series does.
Della Femina, though, did all right for himself. I saw online he had sold his house for $25 million. Not bad for an ad man.
