MBA998 Must Read: Damn Good Advice by George Lois
In business, good advice is worth its weight in gold. For this week’s Must-Read Book Review, we go one better: Damn Good Advice (for people with talent) is a treasure trove of insights, witty observations, and hard-earned truths from George Lois, legendary ad-man and creator of Big Idea Advertising. As the title suggests, Lois’ advice is, shall we say, blunt. Some of it is even controversial. Heck, we outright disagree with a few of his points. But the net value of reading this book is undeniable. It’s an easy, short, digestible read with a humorously combative tone that keeps the pages turning. Before you know it, you’ve finished it — and you’re glad you did. We especially appreciate Lois’ take on the relative merits of smarts and work ethic, a balance that every entrepreneur has to find in themselves and their team members. It’s unconventional, but it’s a gem. Hear what this book has to offer — Click Play!
