Book I Want: Mad Men: The Illustrated World (Repost)

I know it’s been a while since I last posted but not a lot of books (good or otherwise) have crossed my path for a while. I’ve also been more preoccupied with a new career so my free time has been severely, and I repeat, severely, diminished. However, today I stopped by one of my favorite bookstores and chanced upon Mad Men: An Illustrated World by Dyna Moe (Yes, I wonder about that name myself. Apparently, only the show’s creator, Matthew Weiner, knows his/her true persona). I have a love-hate relationship with Mad Men but this book can do no wrong. Granted, I’ve only browsed a few pages’ worth but from what I saw, Dyna Moe’s book will definitely be in this year’s Christmas stocking.

Basically, it’s a lifestyle guide with sections like “Things Every Secretary Should Know” and “Dealing with Difficult Clients.” It has make-up tips and cooking recipes. It has marketing strategies and fashion advice.

Below are a few pages from Amazon that might amuse you as it did me.

I know it looks like all the sections are for women but it’s not. I’ve seen articles for men as well. Of course, this isn’t a book to be taken seriously. For people who love Mad Men and for those who don’t take life too seriously, this is probably a great book to buy. When I get a hold of a copy (translate: when I have enough money to spare), I’ll let you guys know whether it’s Mad Men gold or not.
