First Excerpt: Selling Crack To Children

Shit is happening fast and I haven’t updated this website in a long time! The book is out next week. The first excerpt is out in the world today thanks to New York magazine—enjoy!

I spent two dismal days popping in and out of sessions at the Ad:Tech conference trying to get a better handle on this process.
