Timed to coincide with the second season premiere this summer on AMC and the soundtrack release, Mad Men: Season One includes all 13 episodes of the first season and is loaded with special bonus materials including commentaries, featurettes that explore the world of "Mad Men" and much more!

What you are, what you want, what you love, doesn't matter. It's all about how you sell it. In 1960 New York, the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency make an art of the sell while their private worlds gets sold. It is a time of great ferment. Women have barely begun to come into their own. Librium and birth control were on the move. Ethics in the workplace, smoke-free environments, sexual harassment and ethnic diversity are workshops of the future. Don Draper (Hamm) is the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels.
