Publishers Weekly Margo Berman and Robyn Blakeman's book, The Brains Behind Great Ad Campaigns, is a much-needed one. It's not a guide to developing concepts. It's not a book about copywriting or visual communication. It's not a recipe for success. Nor is it a book about strategy, although all these topics are covered. It's more about the underlying process that results in a great advertising campaign idea. What makes this book special and so helpful for a campaign class is that it covers the right topics, in the right amount, in the right sequence and with crystal-clear examples...The Brains Behind Great Ad Campaigns joins a host of other notable advertising books.
