┐This book of Jane┐s is hilarious but so real that anyone infatuated with Mad Men and anyone interested in a future in advertising must buy it and learn a lot while laughing. There have been many books on advertising. . . . But I have never read one that paints as honest and intimate and lively a picture of life in an agency at this important time in advertising history. . . .You can see I liked it a lot.┐ — Mary Wells Lawrence, author of A Big Life (In Advertising) and founding president of Wells Rich Greene┐I think of Jane Maas as a real-life Peggy Olsen. When I started at Ogilvy & Mather in 1971, a lowly Account Executive, she was already a creative director. She took me under her wing and taught me a lot about creative work that sells. Mad Women made me laugh. It also made me nostalgic for those legendary days when David Ogilvy roamed the corridors exhorting us all to come up with BIG IDEAS. And the book made me think again about working women. Jane reminds us that the challenge of being a good wife, a nurturing mother and a successful professional, all at the same time, still remains. In this respect, we are all Mad Women.┐ ┐ Shelly Lazarus, chairman of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide
