About the Author

After a long and distinguished career, Louis E. "Gene" Boone passed away just before the publication of the Thirteenth Edition of CONTEMPORARY MARKETING. Over the years, students and colleagues at the University of Tulsa, the University of South Alabama, and other schools in the U.S., Australia, and Europe were fortunate to be influenced by Gene's insights. Many marketing instructors knew Gene through his distinguished career and remember the numerous contributions he made to business education. Gene was a pioneer of the marketing discipline and arguably the best and most creative business writer of his generation.

David L. Kurtz has taught at a number of major U.S. and foreign universities, and collaborated on writing best-selling books with Louis E. Boone. Their publications have been translated into Chinese, French, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish. Dave has lectured extensively throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Dave attended Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, West Virginia for four years, and was then accepted by the graduate business school at the University of Arkansas, where he met Gene Boone. Gene and Dave became longtime co-authors; together they have produced more than 50 books. In addition to writing, Dave and Gene have been partners in several entrepreneurial ventures.

This is an excellent up-to-date textbook. I am using this book for an online marketing course and I really enjoy it. The authors provide clear conside relevant information through the case studies. The editing is superb. The assessements provided throughtout the chapter and at the end of the chapter are great reminders. The companion website provides additional information. I highly recommend this book.

I bought this book as a requirement for my Principles of Marketing class.

This book was an easy read. The author uses simple verbiage for people who are not familiar with marketing terms. As the book progresses, he integrates the new terms into the chapters.

The textbook can not be read like a novel. Though this book seemed to flow for the most part, I felt that it was better to jump to different chapters every once in a while to get a different perspective (and my teacher made me).

In the end, I decided to keep this book as part of my library. It will be a great reference if I ever forget my 4P's or need to brush up on my marketing skills.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in delving into the world of marketing. This is a great place to start.

I really did not enjoy reading this book. To me, it seemed the author needed to organize his thoughts a little more. The outlining was very poor, which affected the flow of the text.

The author is clearly knowledgeable on his topic, but he also tries to fit too much information into each section.

I was generally disappointed with this book, however I did enjoy some of the practical examples included in separate boxes and within the text. Often just a small grounding to reality can make a concept seem worth while.

Overall it is a really dry book.

This is the exact book I needed and was in very good condition. Not happy with the length of time required to arrive. Received the book after my second class. This provided me with a lot to catch up on 4 chapters behind.
