A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book about Studying Marketing



October 2006 | 160 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This is the book marketing students have been waiting for. Packed full of lively debate and funny anecdotes, this book covers topics marketing students are familiar with, such as key thinkers and concepts, and some they are not. It looks at areas most textbooks ignore, such as the development of marketing as a discipline and as an academic subject, and raises arguments that students haven't heard about in their lectures.

This book is an antidote to the boring textbook that still tackles key areas addressed in marketing courses. It will challenge students' thinking and help them get a good mark on their exams.

Sweet little book to assist those students wanting a quick immersion into the world of marketing - mainly for those coming from a practitioners perspective.

Some course material in a management module had a marketing flavour. Good introduction to the key issues in Marketing for students unexposed to the area.
