The strength of this latest book [...] is in its blending of tried and tested marketing models from the academics, with bang-up-to-date examples and anecdotal evidence from seasoned marketing practitioners [...] Kolah makes even the most complicated topics accessible and entertaining. The content is clearly signposted and sensibly organised into 10 comprehensive chapters covering a wide range of marketing topics [...] though it has an ambitiously broad scope, there's enough depth to provide those relatively new to marketing with the confidence and encouragement to get started. Its rich with best practice guides, action plans and templates to get you going [...] At a time where marketing resources are evermore stretched, this guru is cost-effective and possibly the most useful addition to your marketing team this year.
