paperback    ISBN 13: 9781847670878 | ISBN 10: 1847670873

In our consumer world, saturated by branded goods, is there any escape from the vice-grip of advertising on all our lives?
Neil Boorman, journalist, brand consultant (and recovering brand addict) draws on his vast profession and personal experience to build a compelling case for change.
In Bonfire of the Brands he assesses the impact of advertising on the individual, the broader implications for society as a whole and the consequences for the near future.
If the industry won't give it up, is it time for the individual to take back control?

"If we don't shift to a less consumerist and throwaway society, we'll hit crisis after crisis, and its coming soon."
(Clare Short)
