The World: Kuala Lumpur - De Kretser book will 'spill beans' on WPP Group, Friday, 26 September 2008 12:00AM

Michael de Kretser, the public relations pioneer, is to publish a "tell-all" memoir that will reveal all about his dealings with the WPP Group.

De Kretser promises his book, titled Long Legs & Lemonade, will expose the "real truth" behind a legal wrangle that he was involved in with Sir Martin Sorrell's holding company.

Earlier this year, de Kretser lost a legal case against MDK Consultants, the agency he founded, after accusations that he poached staff and clients. MDK is now a WPP-owned shell company.

"This book hopefully will clarify, simplify and add a little chilli padi to the world of public relations," de Kretser said.
