Soapy Business (Through The Mangle!) by John Solomon
Published 2005, Paperback Edition
Confessions of a soap salesman.
This takes you back to the 1950’s before supermarkets and identikit town centres. Shops were family owned by eccentrics with “idiosyncratic retail management style”.
The cut-and-thrust world of the soap salesman, tussles with grocers, and devious methods to beat his competitors, as well as a coming of age story.
The author worked for Procter & Gamble from 1957 to 1977.
The book contains two pages of advertising images used in the past by Proctor & Gamble.
