Iain Murray’s work ‘a piece of genius’

I can imagine that Iain Murray doesn’t get a sackfull of fan mail every day, but I read his article in Marketing Week (“Dot-com wealth reveals poverty of American dream”, MW June 15) a few days ago and felt compelled to drop you a line.

It is rare that the level of journalism in the media/marketing press rises above headline-grabbers with scant analysis, but his article was a work of genius by comparison.

I hope that Marketing Week puts him in for a plethora of awards at all levels of journalistic endeavour.

I have passed this on to a few of my chums in academia and told them to drop a few snippets into their lectures in the hope that they will inspire the youth of today to write with such insight and clarity.

Top notch!
