About the Editors

"The cases are very current and deal with relevant marketing problems and issues. You cover the whole spectrum of topic areas in marketing ... I know of no other case book with such a variety of cases which are current. Well done"

Steven Lysonski
Marquette University

"The prospectus makes one hugely compelling statement for me right at the beginning: 'Commentary and analysis will accompany each case, as provided by Clow and Baack.' Now if this can actually be achieved in a meaningful way, we have something unique and valuable here."

AI Rosenbloom
Dominican University

"I think this is an exciting and very comprehensive case book - it looks very interesting. I do not find any deficiencies. I think the authors have thought the content through - and attempted to find a well-rounded and inclusive variety of cases."

Michele B. Kunz
Morehead State University

My teaching has changed and I no longer teach the module I got this for. Although this is a good book, the cases are too substantial to be used with any of my other modules.
