Lexie, OSU Composition, Spring 2014. After doing an in-depth reading of this book I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the field of advertising. Just like the conductor of an orchestra uses the harmony of music to convey his emotions, Spurgeon uses the consensus of her thoughts to advocate her beliefs on the emerging world of Advertising. Although this book does use quite a bit of technical jargon that can only be expected since it is an upper level publication. If you are looking for a book that is credible and up to date, then this is the book for you. Spurgeon uses information from a variety of sources that allows the reader to fully understand the concepts that she is talking about. The organizational structure of Advertising and New Media flows from a theoretical analysis to more of a user-friendly case study. With the first chapter laying out a blue print to an understanding of the book as a whole, the later chapters go into an in-depth explanation of key points that were touched on in the introduction. Throughout this publication, interviews with industry practitioners can be found providing first-hand insights on the impact of new media. Overall this is a beautifully written book that everyone in the advertising world should be dying to get their hands on.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
