Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
In his previous bestselling books, global advertising icon Jean-Marie Dru explored the visionary, innovative techniques that have become a hallmark of TBWA Worldwide campaigns. Now he gives a first-hand account of how the bold methods of disruption launched TBWA to the forefront of international advertising. Here he shares personal insights and anecdotes about his life in advertising as well as lessons learned, revealing how client campaigns for Nissan, Adidas, and the Apple iPhone became such unqualified successes.
Both a fascinating business memoir and a practical guide to harnessing the power of disruption, this book offers a look at the cutting edge of modern advertising.
"You can't do big things in business if you're content with doing things a little better than everyone else. In an era of hyper-competition and non-stop innovation, the most successful competitors are the most disruptive competitors--companies that reshape the sense of what's possible in their industry. In this honest, fast-paced, and endlessly useful book, Jean-Marie Dru, a disruptive thinker who has helped so many great companies redefine their brands and marketing messages, explains how his one-of-a-kind company works--and how his ideas can help you rethink how your company works and wins. Business is too exciting (and too demanding) for business as usual. This book shows you what comes next."
—William C. Taylor, Founding Editor of Fast Company and co-author of Mavericks at Work
"From the CEO down, we live at a time when every organisation should be looking at their business in a creative way. If you don't know how to do it, read this book. Jean- Marie Dru gives you the blueprint, and entertains you as well "
—Terry Savage, Executive Chairman, Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival
"Quite simply and without a shadow of a doubt the best book about advertising ever written. Jean-Marie Dru, the giant brain of our business of our time, divulges the trade secrets of Disruption in full. And the work is a treasure trove of brilliant examples and anecdotes--every page you turn is an inspiration and a joy."
—Donald Gunn, Founder, The Gunn Report
"Disrupt or be disrupted. Disrupt or die. This is the captivating story of implementing the most powerful idea in business today."
—Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence and Re-imagine
"All great breakthrough business ideas have involved breaking with convention, but Dru’s penchant for articulating the need for creative destruction brings decisiveness and encouragement to a field that constantly searches for ways to bring renewal to the process."
