What was it like to be an advertising woman on New York's Madison Avenue in the heady days of the 1960s and 1970s? Fans of the hit series "Mad Men" are dying to know how accurate it is: Was there really that much sex in the office? Were there really three-martini lunches? Were women really second-class citizens? Award-winning advertising legend Jane Maas, who succeeded in the male jungle depicted in Mad Men, says the answers to all three questions is unequivocally yes. Wickedly funny and full of juicy insider information, Mad Women also tackles the tougher issues of the era such as unequal pay and rampant sexism. Maas also reminds us that the challenge she faced of being a supportive wife, caring mother and successful professional, all at the same time, still remains.
