9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris TOP 100 REVIEWER on 17 Jun. 2007
Format: Hardcover
As John Grant explains in his Introduction, these are the four key ideas he examines in this book:

1. "A brand is nothing abstract, like some mysterious essence - it is simply the sum of ideas associated with it."

2. "Over time, the brand becomes like a molecule. Built up of successive and connected ideas."

3. "The way to manage brands is coherence, not consistency."

4. "Brands, like stories, are supposed to have a point."

Throughout his narrative, Grant examines each of these ideas with exceptional rigor and eloquence. In Section I, he shares his theory of brand innovation and suggests how to develop a "tight" strategy that will make a brand coherent. In Section II, he shifts his attention to 32 main types of cultural ideas (e.g. communities, habits, crazes) that brands can add to their "molecule." Finally, in Section III, Grant explains how to organize projects and develop new brand ideas as well as new ideas for existing brands.

Here is a representative selection of brief quotations from Grant's book that offer, I hope, some indication of the thrust and flavor of his thinking:

(1) "I have a different definition of a brand to offer:

A BRAND IS A (CLUSTER OF) STRATEGIC) CULTURAL IDEAS

I will explore the two (bracketed) other parts of this definition in the following sections. In this section I just want to explore the basis of this definition that:

A BRAND (has something to do with) CULTURAL IDEAS.

Format: Hardcover
If you are working in marketing but can see that all of the old ways of doing things are not working but can not quite see what the solution is then this book will answer most of your questions.

If you are a student or are just starting out then by reading and understanding the arguments raised here you will find that things start to make sense to you that others don't seem to grasp. There's a bus load of marketing books out there but if you only read three it should be the three written by this author!!

This book is very aware that theory and practice can often remain very separate. Though it does talk about some quite high minded stuff it also does everything it can to actually help you learn which ideas are the right ideas and then help you come up with them for yourself. Enjoy.

Format: Hardcover
Unlike many marketing text books, which seem to live in a dry, theoretical world of Benefits, Reasons to Believe and Brand Equity Pyramids, this book comes from the real world. Full of examples, clever observation and even humour and humanity, I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone involved in brand marketing, advertising and communications.

Format: Hardcover
An excellent and enjoyable read.

Insights on what is needed to come up with brand ideas that can become remarkable. We can all see the merit in looking beyond the normal way of doing things for a given brand in a given category but this book highlights specific areas to focus our thinking on. Once you know where to look it's easier to find something!
