Review

"...would make an ideal gift for anyone interested in marketing and the management of brands..." -- Campaign, 10th December 2004

From the Inside Flap

Brands are moving to the centre of business. Top management need to understand how to manage the potential of brands and this book will help.'

Sir Niall FitzGerald, Chairman of Reuters (former Chairman of Unilever)

I do not believe there is a successful company left in the world that seriously questions the importance of brands but to manage brands profitably means accepting their complexity. For those of us who continue to grapple with these complexities, this book offers welcome new insights and case-based guidance.'

Sir Martin Sorrell, Chairman of WPP Group plc

This book organises the best thinking on brands from around the world. It helps readers understand the power of brands and guides them on how to make the case for brand investment.'

Professor John Quelch, Associate Dean of Harvard Business School

Brands play a vital role in business by setting expectations, motivating employees, attracting talent, strengthening relationships, and by building emotional bonds with consumers. As this book demonstrates, everybody is in the business of brands.'

Shelly Lazarus, Chairman and Chief Executive, Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide"

Format: Hardcover
It's so hard to find books on branding which aren't faddish, gimmicky, or written by wannabe-gurus, but I think this is definitely one of them. As the title suggests, it's a hard-headed business book about brands, and there aren't many of them about. It's also very readable, with plenty of stories and case studies, all written in a "no-nonsense" style. The two authors are both working at a major advertising agency, and you get the feeling this book has had some resources put behind it. It's obviously been thoroughly researched (the list of sources is valuable in its own right), although the book lacks for any specific guidance on further reading. Overall it's a thorough, useful "work-horse" of a book - probably it will find its place on people's shelves alongside well-thumbed brand classics such as Aaker.

I bought some books about this subject and, until now this is the best. Its clear, well structured and deep enough. It will be of good use in the future, as a reference.

HASH(0x98c31ed0) out of 5 stars Highly recommended 7 July 2005
By Clinton Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read this book cover to cover in 2 days. It's one of those few business books that provide a comprehensive overview of the subject while keeping the reader engaged and entertained.

It's a great read for those anyone interested in the role of Brands in business and society. Beware though, it's not an academic work, and it's not a "how to" recipe book.
HASH(0x9b8354d4) out of 5 stars Good, but a few too many typos 11 Mar. 2009
By M. Golosinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The authors present a strong framework for the subject, and the book is engaging. But there is a concern I have about the number of typos in the text. This undermines credibility and should have been caught during editing. That said, the content itself appears valuable and insightful.
