We have just launched our new Creative Social book, Hacker, Maker, Teacher, Thief; Advertising’s Next Generation. Comprising 35 chapters by 35 brilliant authors, it covers umbrella topics advertising, creativity, culture, education, innovation and the future. The authors pose questions such as,

Is digital collaboration the death of idea ownership?

How can copying make you more original?

I feel connected but do I feel more human?

How do we ‘do’ innovation?

What the f**k do clients know about great advertising?

Amongst many others….

We think it’s a must read but don’t just take our word for it, here is what some of Adlands greats have to say about it:

“A punchy, provocative and perceptive trip through some of the bigger debates of the moment, from a gang of the most pioneering creative minds in and around the industry. As a collection, it’s like an idea grenade. It should be required reading for agency CEOs and leadership teams.”

Ben Malbon, Marketing Director, Creative Partnerships, Google

“Forget the past, the future is where it’s at – and this is your guide book.”

Rosie Arnold, Deputy Executive Creative Director, BBH London

“Less of a book and more of a lively debate. So rather than read it, ‘listen to it’ and get stuck in. It’ll make you want to ask questions, nod vigorously and

heckle from the back.”

Graham Fink, CCO, Ogilvy China
