The pictures in television commercials, magazine advertisements and other forms of advertising often convey meanings that cannot be expressed as well, or at all, through words or music. Visual Persuasion is an exploration of the uniquely visual aspects of advertising. Because of the implicit nature of visual argumentation and the relative lack of social accountability which images enjoy in comparison with words, pictures can be used to make advertising claims that would be unacceptable if spelled out verbally. From this starting point, Paul Messaris analyzes a variety of commercial, political and social issue advertisements. He also discusses the role of images in cross-cultural advertising.

Rhetorical scholarship has found rich source material in the disciplines of advertising, communications research, and consumer behavior. Advertising, considered as a kind of communication, is distinguished by its focus on causing action. Its goal is not simply to communicate ideas, educate, or persuade, but to move a prospect closer to a purchase. The editors of "Go Figure! New Directions in Advertising Rhetoric" have been involved in developing the scholarship of advertising rhetoric for many years. In this volume they have assembled the most current and authoritative new perspectives on this topic. The chapter authors all present previously unpublished concepts that represent advances beyond what is already known about advertising rhetoric. In the opening and closing chapters editors Ed McQuarrie and Barbara Phillips provide an integrative view of the current state of the art in advertising rhetoric.

Berühmt wurde er durch seine kultigen Dilbert-Comics und -Bücher, die den Wahnsinn im Büroalltag pointiert auf die Schippe nehmen und treffend skizzieren. Doch wie kam Scott Adams auf seinen Stoff, seine Geschichten und seine Figuren? Und wie konnte er mit einem mundlosen Cartoon-Helden so erfolgreich werden? Die Antworten liegen in seiner eigenen Lebensauffassung, die er hier schildert. Und so beschreibt Adams mit dem für ihn typischen Humor, worin er überall gescheitert ist und welche Lehre er für sich daraus zog: Ziele sind etwas für Versager und nur Systeme machen einen zum Sieger. Ein Beispiel: Abnehmen zu wollen, ist ein Ziel. Aber sich gesünder zu ernähren, ist ein System. Diese und viele andere Einsichten führten Adams über viele spannende Umwege letztendlich zu seinem Welterfolg. Eine vergnügliche Geschichte über eine ungewöhnliche Laufbahn – nicht nur für Dilbert-Fans ein Muss, sondern für jeden, der herausfinden möchte, wie auch ein Versager erfolgreich sein kann!
