A Big Life in Advertising

Overview -
The first woman president of an advertising agency and the first woman CEO of a company on the New York Stock Exchange tells her riveting story: How she shattered every glass ceiling and became a Madison Avenue legend.*

As The New York Observer put it, her agency, Wells Rich Greene, created ads that etched indelible phrases into the public imaginations: 'Flick your Bic' and 'I Love New York ' and 'Plop plop, fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is.'
For those thinking about a life in advertising for themselves and for anyone who enjoys being transported by a great storyteller's art, Mary Wells Lawrence is the most energetic, passionate guide to the world of American advertising in all its brilliance, excitement, fun and crazines
