Reviews & endorsements
'I really like the book and the approach, it's refreshingly different which is what I have been looking for. It is also not American-saturated which is a great relief … The book reads very well and is properly oriented into marketing thinking not advertising. … What appeals to me most about Lawrence's book is the strong marketing focus - I teach marketing students not advertising students so have been wanting a text that focuses on aspects marketers want to know about! The thinking questions are also excellent and I will be using those to help me put the assignments together.' Kate Jones, Auckland University of TechnologySee more reviews
'Highlights of the book include its engaging writing style and its judicious use of evidence to support theories and claims. Its length is suitable for teaching needs, and I will be recommending it to colleagues.' Robert East, Kingston Business School, Kingston University London
