One Great Insight is Worth a Thousand Great Ideas

8,190 views

Published on

From time to time on the Brand Autopsy blog, I share "money quotes" from business books I've recently read. This presentation shares "money quotes" from long-time advertising guy Phil Dusenberry and his book, “ONE GREAT INSIGHT IS WORTH A THOUSAND GOOD IDEAS” (Portfolio).

[Note, this book was originally published as a hardback with the unfortunate title of “And Then We Set His Hair on Fire: Insights and Accidents from a Hall of Fame Career in Advertising.” No wonder they decided to change the title.]
