Product Details


“New York media types aren’t quick to pass up a party, even one celebrating a book that predicts their demise. . . . The future of marketing will need to rely on creative, innovative models, Mr. Essex wrote, pointing to The Lego Movie and New York’s Citi Bike bicycle-share program as promising examples.”The New York Times
“[Essex] argues that advertising as we know it is already in its death throes, [forcing] some companies . . . to recognize that consumers can now bypass anything that doesn’t offer value. Some of the results that he praises seem visionary. . . . As Essex succinctly demonstrates, since consumers will continue to buy and companies still have large budgets to promote, ingenuity can find a way to promote value.”Kirkus Reviews

“[Andrew] Essex’s extended soliloquy on advertising’s past, present, and future is informative and enjoyable.”Publishers Weekly

“A rabble-rousing indictment of the ad industry from one of its own. Essex predicts that success will depend less on the ability to annoy and more on the capacity to create and entertain.”—Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take

“Fresh and timely, The End of Advertising is an eye-opening take on the current media landscape. And along with it, Essex provides a road map for how brands can reinvent themselves and navigate this new world.”—Arianna Huffington

“In this dynamic little book, Essex challenges brands—even those of us who pride ourselves on thinking outside the box—to think bigger still. He’s got me thinking.”—Neil Blumenthal, co-founder of Warby Parker

“In this quick and compelling read, Essex presents a bracing view of a future that can’t get here soon enough. The End of Advertising should be mandatory reading for anyone who wants to get a message across in this age of authenticity.”—Alexis Ohanian, co-founder, Reddit
