Why “Books, Brains and Beer”?
“Books, Brains and Beer” is a tongue-in-cheek homage to advertising giant David Ogilvy’s memoir Blood, Brains and Beer, of which I own an inscribed copy. I inherited the book from my grandfather, who received it from Ogilvy in return for repairing his rocking chair. Family stories like this are important to me.
Also, it’s a fun name for a blog.
