Non-Fiction

The first hardbound dictionary dedicated to explaining the jargon employed in the business of marketing and advertising.


I wrote the thousands of definitions in this book on index cards that I carried in my suit jacket pocket. After I convinced the ad agency I worked for at the time to publish my work anonymously, it entered widespread use as a reference work. After a while, the agency sold the book to National Textbooks. I lost track of it after a few years. It's now out of print.


Excerpt

Smudge, verb 1. to damage a piece of artwork, photographic film or print, or a freshly printed sheet in a manner that results in a blurred spot. 2. to blur a well-focused advertising idea by means of excessive manipulation. (Author's note: this is the ONLY fake definition I snuck into the Dictionary. I think it still should have entered common parlance as defined)
