Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0933294093, Paperback)

AT THE HEIGHT OF HIS CAREER HE SUDDENLY DISAPPEARED . . . Climbing from the grit of postwar Virginia shipyards, Martin Goldman created a life based upon his talents and dreams. Against all odds, his vision for what could be overcame the skeptics. Goldman reached the pinnacle of Madison Avenue fame garnering Clios and Bronze Lions while living the fast life. His genius for creative persuasion took him around the world making memorable commercials for Coca-Cola, Ford, Fabergé and others. Success came fast and furious and led to an excessive lifestyle. From living with the Green Berets, to falling in love at the Winter Olympics in France, making award-winning Coca-Cola commercials, to sex in Topanga Canyon, then madness in Monte Carlo, getting shot on a Santa Fe set and a call from the White House . . . Mad Ave to Hollywood buzzes with true accounts of a time when a great idea could still overpower rigid corporate bean-counters to make something inspiring. Soon, the blur led him to Hollywood’s back lots, but after making a feature film for Paramount, at the height of his career, and without so much as a final bow, Goldman walked away from it all. Each chapter reads like its own adventure as the book unfolds into the story of Goldman's incredible ride from Mad Ave to Hollywood.
