The Minefields by Steven C. Eisner

Title: The Minefields
Author: Steven C. Eisner
ISBN: 978-1937836023
Publisher: When Words Count Publishing/2012
Pages: 320

The Minefields deals with the world of advertising, something I knew nothing about. Sam Spiegel, the protagonist, takes us into the internal world of advertising, not an easy business. It deals with his life, his family and friends. 

The novel takes us into the emotional depths and conflicts. Sam's character is well developed and we see a varied range of his emotions. He is complex yet likeable. Hard to understand but very balanced decisions at the end of the day. Sam takes the business to great levels despite opposition.

It is totally a readable book although we can see the pathos but that is dwelt with a depth of humour
