"If I had one book on brands to take with me to a marketing desert island it would be this one. The authors' enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, brands is jam-packed between these covers.
This book is an absolutely comprehensive summary of the latest thinking in brand-building. But more than that, action lists at the end of each chapter create a valuable template for how you can create a powerful brand."
Nick Kendall, Bartle Bogle Hegarty Ltd

"Creating powerful brands has been an elusive goal of most financial services companies. This book provides everything needed to devise and implement a successful branding strategy.
The first edition of this book acted as a guidebook for the development of the Financial Services Forum brand. I am sure that this edition will help us further refine and develop our branding strategy.
Without doubt the most well-thumbed book in my marketing library - invaluable reading for anyone responsible for their companies' brand. If building a brand is a journey rather than a destination, then this book is the definitive roadmap."
Anthony Thomson, Chairman of the Advisory Board, The Financial Services Forum
"Authoritative and broad-ranging, this updated classic explains how to create, manage, and develop powerful brands in a unique and interesting way, with many illustrations."
Hugh Davidson, Visiting Professor of Marketing, Cranfield University School of Management, UK.
"Building on the previous successful works of both authors, this book offers an excellent combination of leading edge practice, academic rigour, and effective communication. On a global scale, it is in my view one of the three best books on the subject and should be a must for anybody seriously interested in Branding".
Professor JC Larreche, Alfred H. Heineken Professor of Marketing, INSEAD
