Walter Taplin here presents the first fruits of his exhaustive enquiry into the causes of this massive feature of contemporary life. Advertising has deeper and more interesting sources than the mere desire of manufacturers to secure markets, or of high-pressure salesmen to secure commissions. Taplin explores the nature of human wants, examines the functions and limitations of information, and distinguishes the good from the bad in the arts of persuasion. His approach to the subject is indeed a new one, and of the greatest value to all who wish to understand one of the most powerful forces of the day.

Advertising Today and Tomorrow surveys the structure and function of modern advertising (and in particular the modern advertising agency), investigates how appropriate its machinery is for modern business requirements, and suggests how, both for the good of itself and its clients, it can best equip and refine itself for the future. It is of great use to students of business, particularly of marketing, in the colleges, universities and business schools, as well as being of great help to young people seeking to make advertising their career.
