30 Days of Ogilvy

I've been reading a lot of great stuff lately- both fiction and nonfiction, which is a bit rare for me. One book, that I've wanted to read for a long time and am finally getting around to is David Ogilvy's Confessions of an Advertising Man

I pretty much fell in love with it right away. Ogilvy is fairly anti-Minnesotan, in that he is blunt. He writes the book all in first person, and every page is filled with declarative statements that you might alternately love or hate. Agree or disagree with. 

To celebrate what I consider the wit and wisdom of this book, I will be tweeting a daily quote from the book with the hashtag #30daysofOgilvy. And I'm starting 5 days late, since I'm 5 minutes late for pretty much everything in life.
