A great book! This book is accessible and will be of interest to the person wanting mostly the big picture, who will marvel at the plethora of real-world examples; the person wanting a higher level of detail, who will enjoy the history of the development of STM and its key differences from traditional test marketing; and finally, to the person who wants to really spend a lot of time "inside the black box," who will appreciate the discussion of the inner workings of the various models. Market New Products Successfully is a must read for anyone who even nibbles in the area of marketing research, new product development, product strategy in general, or advertising and promotional strategy. -- Paul D.
