This book is recommend to level 1 and level 2 students. It has some excellent context and examples (thinking outside this box). It is also a fabulous resource for planning sessions
veri interesting book with great case studies. Language was alittle basic for the learners but great to help with understanding of key themes
An excellent book for my MA course in communication strategies. I have been looking for a thorough up-to-date reference book with case-studies and am v. happy to have found this book. Will definitely adopt.
Another excellent text from Mr Blythe! Approachable and easy to address for students, with lots of "today in marketing" type examples. I have found this text ideal for delivering marketing to new recruits to the marketing function, and those studying marketing as a module in Business and Management degrees. I have also used it to deliver an Operational Marketing final undergraduate module for BA(Hon's) Management and here students were very grateful for it being on the Essential Reading list. As a Principal Examiner and Moderator for the ISMM I have again used this text for the marketing units of sales, sales management and account management qualifications, with student's finding this text supportive and essential reading for their studies. As Chief Examiner for the IDB and IADB Marketing and Behaviour modulesm I have also added this text to world-wide students reading lists.
