"John Philip Jones’s new book is a provocative and lively challenge to much conventional advertising practice."
"Professor John Philip Jones is more than a fine teacher, he is an exceptional thinker. John at last brings structure, clarity, and understanding to the murky business of how advertising contributes to brand profits. Reading his new book I found myself nodding ‘yes, yes, yes’ to things I had never read before."
"John Phillip Jones has set himself the highest hurdle there is—how to make advertising accountable. His argument is precise, and his language entertaining and intelligent, making this quest an essential, provocative and delightfully enjoyable voyage for professionals and students alike. Read it."
"Building on his original single-source data analysis, Jones demonstrates in depth the potential power of advertising ideas. His new Gatekeeper model gives his thesis some real teeth and provides marketers and agencies with an invaluable tool to harness creativity profitably on behalf of brands."
This book is good for students studying advertising. It should not be taken as the ultimate answer to the secrets of advertising, but it does pose some interesting views. The way in which those views are presented is different from the usual textbook and should be commended for this, but it needs to be read alongside other more general books on the subject for a better overall view.
