An absolute must for all marketing students! This text provides outstanding coverage of core marking knowledge underpinned by relevant, new and up-to-date cases Dr Frauke Mattison Thompson, Lecturer in Marketing, King's College, London This excellent book provides the perfect balance of theory and practice for those seeking a thorough grasp of marketing. Concise and accessible, yet crammed with interesting and highly relevant case studies, the authors have really succeeded in bringing the subject to life! Dr. Ian Richardson, Stockholm University, School of Business Essentials of Marketing's coverage of core topics is first rate, and the discussions about marketing ethics, digital and social marketing are simply essential to our understanding of the way in which marketing practice influences today's society. Highly recommended Robert P. Ormrod, Associate Professor, Aarhus University When Marketing was first published in 2008, I must confess to being sceptical at the launch of yet another marketing textbook. However, on reading it, my reaction was 'wow' as it is outstanding in every department. Now, these talented, experienced authors have launched Essentials of Marketing. My advice to all lecturers and students to is to take a look inside - like its cousin, it is a remarkable introduction to marketing Malcolm McDonald, Emeritus Professor, Cranfield Universityshow more
