Reading the first few pages of Dr Mani Shreshtha and Dr Anurag Dugar’s book, I got hooked. The way they have started each chapter with a case study and then tried to simplify the nuances of the case through the eyes of a marketer is simply awesome. The flow of the book is interactive, which makes it a page turner. Best wishes to both of them, and I hope that they will continue to write more books which help students and practitioners alike.
This book is an honest and successful attempt to give practical insights to young budding marketing professionals. I would
encourage all marketing students and professionals to read and absorb practical findings of the book.
Marketing is the study of why people do what they do, with the final goal of getting them to do what we want them to do. This book is the right step in that direction. Starting with topics like ‘How do I know my customers are satisfied?’ to pricing strategy and planning for the best media for best results, this book is a must-read for students and practitioners of marketing.
It is said that all big ideas are always very simple. Likewise, this thought of coming with a handbook of most common, most frequently needed and most commonly used calculations by marketers of today and aspiring marketers of tomorrow is a brilliant idea. I am very confident that it is going to be a ‘must-have’ in the armamentarium of every marketer. Kudos to the authors of this simple but brilliant idea.
