Often Wrong Never in Doubt - Unleash the Business Rebel Within

Often Wrong Never in Doubt - Unleash the Business Rebel Within In 1983, Deutsch joined his father's small New York City advertising agency and, over the next two decades, built its annual billings to $1.5 billion. In 2000, he sold the company for $280 million and jumped into media, creating a film production company and hosting a CNBC talk show. There's a lesson or two worth hearing in this story, but readers will have to work to find them in the midst of Deutsch's bluster. True to the book's title, he delivers contradictory ideas with equal forcefulnessas when he denounces cigarette and video game advertising as socially irresponsible, yet holds up his agency's campaigns for Tanqueray and drugs as great successes (The amount of money we made advertising pharmaceuticals was staggering). […] Yet he astutely argues, in a chapter on the Hungry-Eye Hiring Theory, that the most productive employees are often a little angry; they've got something to prove. Hit and miss, this book suggests that, in advertising at least, the quest for success is best fueled by arrogance and testosterone.
