by Nicole on April 22, 2012

Name of Product: THEMINEFIELDS by Steven Eisner 

Where to Buy:  at  retailers nationwide, including Amazon

Price of Product:  $14.99

Description of Product: “From an early age, Sam Spiegel single-mindedly pursued an entrepreneurial path that prepared him to transform a small-time ad agency into a regional powerhouse with national ambitions. A couple decades later, Sam had achieved almost everything he ever dreamed possible as the ad agency’s rainmaker, fountainhead, and unflappable pursuer of success. One final goal remained: To consolidate his gains by attracting an international advertising conglomerate and cash out. That’s when the nation is hit with the most unthinkable tragedy, and Sam begins to take stock of his own life, finding that he is growing weary of the relentless hunt. Unsatisfied in his marriage and embroiled in a mind-boggling professional crisis, everything Sam had achieved is put at risk.”

Review of Product:  I really enjoyed this book.  I went to college in Philadelphia which is the setting for the book so many of the references were quite familiar to me which was fun.  You really do get a comprehensive look into the inner workings of an ad agency as the context for the story.  More than that it is the story of a family business and legacy and is something I think many people in my generation can relate to.

Excerpt: “Right, and doctor, I need to call my mother and brother to see what’s taking them so long to get here. How long’s our window?” “A pair of hours, max.” Together we walked back, and when we got to Dad’s bed, the doctor spoke kindly.”
