"I picked up your B2B Marketing book over the weekend and couldn't put it down. As a B2B specialist for our agency, I found it to be very enlightening and dead on. Your ability to demonstrate the philosophical differences in B2C and B2B marketing should serve as the foundation for all marketers in their efforts to provide value to their clients, organizations and companies. Thanks again for bringing this book into my life. God Speed."
Scott Davila, Carter Ryley Thomas
"Rare indeed are the books devoted to the important, but all to often neglected, subject of business-to-business (b2b) marketing. For the b2b marketer the search for useful advice often reveals little more than foot notes in the great annals of marketing, which remain overwhelmingly dedicated to the cause of business-to-consumer (b2c) marketing. With this book Steve Minett hopes to begin to address this imbalance. It is intended, and indeed succeeds, as a pracitical guide for practioners, that spells out why b2b is different, and how these differences affect your marketing activities.The b2b practioner will be hard pressed to find a more useful guide to the subtle, but tremendously important nuances of their trade."John Ling, CIM Direct
"The quote on the jacket of this book claims that Minett’s B2B Marketing is ‘a radically different approach for business-to-business marketers’, and to be honest that is exactly what this book offers."
Andrew Thompson, Automotive Review

"Steve Minett's approach to B2B marketing is fresh and thought-provoking. One business book in a thousand offers this kind of original and clear thinking; theory with feet still firmly on the ground. This book will be indispensable to anyone who wants to be competitive in B2B." Carl Eric Linn, author and lecturer, senior consultant Meta Management AB

The book makes excellent reading for anybody involved in industrial marketing," Göran Nyström, Vice-President Sales & Marketing, Sandvik
