Your book Life’s a Pitch is written as if it was two books. What was the reasoning behind this? It was really an inspired accident.

This month we interviewed Roger Mavity, who originally started his career in advertising, where he ran his own advertising agency, Mavity Gilmore Jaume, for ten years. Clients of the agency included Burberry, Nestle, Minolta, Olivetti, and Honda.
