Hear what our students have to say about their time at The Book Shop:




"What I like about the Book Shop is that they are creatives themselves, it's professional, not academic and it's shown me the importance of having a good book, and the methods to build one. It's inexpensive, it's fun, and I'm pretty sure there's no other program like it."

C. Hughes
LA Intro/Summer '18

"This class helped me form a basic step for my messy thinking process. I usually get stuck right at the beginning because I do not know where to start. I realized my current book was not good enough for anything. And I need to be patient and learn do one step at a time rather than rushing to finish my book. It is a good investment decision to make your career (and mindset) grow."

Q. Truong
LA Intro/Summer '18

"After taking the Intermediate class, I am truly excited to get into the advertising industry. I feel so passionate about advertising and this class definitely expresses that if you work hard you can go far. The Book Shop is the best program in LA for people who are already working at a full-time job and want to go into advertising."

B. Wattles
LA Intermediate/Summer '18

"I'm finishing Advanced One and already have a great start to a book which I know is only going to get infinitely better as I progress. My teacher created a challenging yet safe learning environment - I've learned so much! If you're serious about going into advertising, the cost and benefit is way in your favor. "

K. MacLean
LA Advanced One/Summer '18

"Giving it my all and learning from all the wisdom of the teachers in The Book Shop has helped me get an internship earlier than expected, and prepared me for that internship experience wonderfully. I apply everything I have learned to my work on a daily basis. Highly recommended. "

S. McKinney
LA Advanced Two/Summer '18

"When I first started at Book Shop, I had this idea of what an ad campaign was supposed to look like. It was wrong. There's this clean slate approach the curriculum takes, in wiping from your brain any expectations you may have. It reteaches your brain to think about concepts differently, to look at messaging from multiple perspectives, building out ideas into a long-game that'll make a campaign truly thrive. That foundation has helped me view my writing differently, evolve the way I communicate, and see the bigger picture a bit clearer."

A. Pruner
LA Teams/Summer '18

"The Books Shop has given me fantastic campaigns that will make my book stand out against the competition. My ads now look and feel like professional ads. They're also the strongest conceptual executions I've ever done. If you just want to get a job in advertising, The Book Shop isn't for you. If you want to have a successful career in advertising, then The Book Shop is definitely for you!"

J. Kausch
LA Teams/Summer '18

"I feel like this Copy class gave me a huge creative boost which I couldn't be more thankful for. The Book Shop has taught me new skills which have helped sharpen my practice. I feel more excited about my future and do believe this will lead me to a successful career."

M. Khatri
Copy/Spring '18

"Having learned what's on the cutting edge of digital executions & what's on the horizon, my digital executions will be at least one step ahead of current trends, which should give me a leg up on my competition. What you'll learn will be incredibly valuable & since all things mobile/online evolve so quickly, I'll likely take it again (and again) to keep up with the latest trends and technologies."

M. Howell
LA Digital Creative/Fall '17

"In this crash course, I really liked the focus on Art Direction aside from the ideation process and creating a process to make a great Art Director. My ads have improved because I won't look at them the same way again. It's about pushing the Art Direction to the best possible solution. Book Shop has helped me think differently."
