Often Wrong, Never in Doubt is an inspirational book from one of America’s most colorful and exciting entrepreneurs. Donny Deutsch lays out the core principles that propelled him to create tremendous wealth, build a huge and influential business, and become a national personality. Using inside stories of the media, the advertising industry, and a youth spent growing up on the streets of New York, Donny gives the commonsense bottom line that he has learned along the way, broken down into real, relevant and inspiring lessons that will be useful to everyone from the front-line sales person to the middle manager to the successful corporate executive.

Under Donny Deutsch’s leadership as Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Deutsch Inc., the company has grown into the nation’s premier cutting-edge advertising agency. Donny recently launched a hip and irreverent CNBC talk show, "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch", which examines issues in pop culture, business, politics, the arts, and sports. He is also Managing Partner of the independent film production company Deutsch Open City. In presidential politics he was a lead member of the successful Clinton/Gore communications team. A graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Donny now serves on two prestigious boards: UPenn School of Social Work’s Executive Committee and the Michael J. Fox Parkinson’s Foundation’s Board of Directors.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Though his celebrity may sell it, it’s Donny Deutsch’s street smarts and humanity that make this one of the most enduring lessons on running a small business, in this case advertising. Part memoir, part primer on managing clients in a creative business, the material also discusses managing oneself with integrity, a healthy respect for other people, and an honest perspective on one’s individual talents and contributions. With its strong writing and the narration of cowriter Peter Knobler, who reads with a Manhattan accent, this is an entertaining listening experience that is also motivating and inspiring without being explicitly so. A worthy addition to one’s audio business library.”
