    Finbar Dolan is lost and lonely. Except he doesn’t know it. Despite escaping his blue-collar Boston upbringing to carve out a mildly successful career at a Madison Avenue ad agency, he’s a bit of a mess and closing in on 40. He’s recently called off a wedding. Now, a few days before Christmas, he’s forced to cancel a long-postponed vacation in order to write, produce, and edit a Superbowl commercial for his diaper account in record time. Fortunately, it gets worse....

    Story
    Would you try another book from John Kenney and/or Robert Petkoff?

    Great narration, but the story didn't capture me. I found myself really starting to hate the protagonist for how self centered, whiny and cowardly he was. My biggest pet peeve of John Kenney's as a writer is that with long sets of dialogue the only introduction used is "he said," "she said," "I said." Maybe it works on the page, but listening to it is ridiculous!


    Would you recommend Truth in Advertising to your friends? Why or why not?

    It's an easy "airplane" read, but not a "must read."
