16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Navarra on 20 Sept. 2001
Format: Paperback
This text was my main most enjoyable book for my 2nd year business studies degree. I found it very easy to follow yet still comprehensive in its content. It actually proves to be not only a plain text book to study with, but also a very interesting read. Its simple layout and real world (up to date) case studies make application of theories taught very obvious. It has a great chapter summary each time, as well as revision questions and tests. If you need a good text book for this subject, choose this one!

This is a fantastic book, very simple to use for studying, It also gives you a international perspective, which is fantastic! Only down side would be that some of the examples could be less dated, Just to give you examples to refer to in exams/assignments.

When looking for a book in consumer behaviour, you should always go for a book by Soloman! and that is all I need to say, no need for a long winded review!

This is the most up to date text book in consumer behaviour on the market. Also, it does have a European perspective. We used the ealier edition, we will use the new one and are convinced that our students will be even more pleased with it.
