I found this to be an engrossing book. While the primary theme was advertising, and sprinkled with humor, I found the underlying story of the main character's struggle to find meaning out of his life touching and redemptive.

Spent 20 years in advertising... 7 of them in New York mostly working for the agency that did the 1984 commercial. While Kenney may have tried to capture the "truth in advertising" his writing is trite and stupid at best. He was wise to get out of the business.
