A very well written textbook. For students in a master program it is the right book and offers sufficient insights. As it is written in English and the course is taught in German it is adopted as a recommended book for the students.

This adds that little bit extra information about statistics to a more general textbook on marketing and consumer research. I will use the book as a recommended source for those students who wish to progress a little further with quantitative analyses.

I recommend this book in my Marketing Research Course as well as Consumer Behaviour course. It's well written, with a good balance between statistics and marketing practice oriented knowledge. It covers practically all the fields of marketing research problems linking them with appropriate tools of analysis. My students like this book on condition that they have basic knowledge on statistics.
