Produced by author Anneloes van Gaalen and creative consultancy Lemon Scented Tea, this handy aphorism debunker should help every aspiring creative and client cut through the clichés. Is 'the client always right?' And should you use 'cleavage or legs, never both'?
The book doesn't profess to have any answers, but at least it will steel you for the inevitable clash come presentation time.
