David MacKenzie Ogilvy (June 23, 1911July 21, 1999) has been often called 'The Father of Advertising'. In 1975, Time called him the most sought-after wizard in the advertising industry. In early 2004, Adweek magazine asked people in the business Which individuals alive or dead made you consider pursuing a career in advertising? Ogilvy topped the list. And the same result came when students of advertising were surveyed. His best-selling book 'Confessions of an Advertising Man' is one of the most popular and famous books on advertising.
