Sterling’s Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Ad Man (Guest review by Mr. Pingwing)
Synopsis from the dust jacket:
“Taken as a whole, Roger Sterling’s pithy comments and observations amount to a unique window on the advertising world – a world that few among as are privileged to witness first-hand – as well as a commentary on life in New York City in the middle of the twentieth century.”
Sterling’s Gold is a quick read containing quotes and quips from Roger Sterling, a character on AMC’s award-winning period drama Mad Men, about the world of advertising in New York City in the 1960s.
The book can be enjoyed by both those who have followed the series, now entering its sixth season, and those who have never seen an episode. Although many quotes are more humourous if you are familiar with the character of Roger Sterling, those who are not will still get a chuckle out of his take on the advertising business, women, office politics, drinking, and life in general.
I was glad to receive this book as a gift and would recommend it to any fan of Mad Men!
