Fables, Fashions, and Facts About Advertising by John Philip Jones
Book Description'The book makes an interesting and substantive contribution to the field of advertising directly, and also to the entire field of marketing communications or promotion. John Philip Jones presents a new and informed perspective that supports and underpins the need for advertising that works rather than emotive rhetoric that obscures its purpose and function' - Philip J Kitchen, University of Hull. 'This is a much needed text that puts misinformation to rest with strong evidence to disprove it. Most texts simply show how ads are developed, media plans are implemented, and lots of beautiful advertisements. This book shows how advertising can be and should be effective' - Jan S Slater, Ohio University.The workings of advertising have always remained a bit of a mystery; until about 1960 virtually nothing of the effectiveness of advertising was known. There was even some doubt about whether advertising worked at all. In the absence of facts, theories were developed up to fill the vacuum. These were soon developed into doctrines, which became widely followed - fables that became fashions. Not many of these theories were ever subjected to harsh scrutiny based on factual knowledge, mainly because there was not much factual knowledge available until recently.Unlike most other advertising textbooks, "Fables, Fashions, and Facts About Advertising" is not written as a 'how to' text, or as a vehicle for war stories, or as a sales pitch. Instead, it is a book that concentrates solely on describing how advertising works. Written to be accessible to the general public with little or no experience studying advertising, it makes the scholarship of an internationally renowned figure accessible to students taking beginning advertising courses.
