Mad Women: The Other Side of Life on Madison Avenue in the ’60s and Beyond by Jane Maas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book. I am a big Mad Men fan and was interested in hearing a real-life behind the scenes story. I was also curious to see how she juggled everything. I have to admit that everytime I see a successful professional woman with children and a shred of her sanity the first thing I wonder is how she does it.
Jane Maas explains exactly how; by putting her career 1st, husband 2nd, and children last. That and having live in help during the week, and a true partner for a spouse.
However hearing about the history of advertising in the 60’s and 70’s and her role in it was good (and quick reading).
However, while I enjoyed the book, I am glad I borrowed it from my local library and did not spend $12 downloading it from Amazon.Mad Women: The Other Side of Life on Madison Avenue in the ’60s and Beyond
