I'm a career marketing executive with 13 years of experience currently working as a Director of Marketing and Analytics for a VC-backed firm. This book is invaluable to me at our firm as we take a deep dive into our own data and attempt to build custom metrics and KPIs. This book provides insightful frameworks into how intelligent metrics are mathematically constructed, along with discussing their assumptions and limitations.

The writing is succinct, and the organization of this book appeals to one's intelligence and time. You don't have to read this book cover to cover! The table of contents in such a wonderful and simple fashion breaks down the book into the major subcategories of Marketing, such as Product and Portfolio Development. Each chapter first outlines and summaries major relevant metrics, and then discusses each in detail complete with theorems, assumptions, considerations, and weaknesses.

Every intelligent, ambitious, and professional executive must own this book. It gives you a rare balance of academic and practical rigor. If you don't see metrics that can help your business, then you can borrow its notions into how some of the most influential KPIs are constructed and then use those frameworks to exploit your own intelligence issues.

This is a great reference book, and it has a special place on my bookshelf at work. You don't have to be an academic to understand this book. If you are patient with this book, you will see what a gem this is. 5 stars.

Disclosure: I am neither a student, nor do I know any of the authors of this book.

The book is both an overview and a detailed discussion of every marketing metric you'd ever want to know.

I had studied some of the concepts in a business school course and throughout reading various literature, however it's nice to have the information all in one spot like a handy reference.

Unfortunately the metrics don't apply well to new media - for instance there is only one metric for social networking.

Probably a good follow on to this book would be the impact on smart phone apps, social networking, etc. etc. and relevant marking metrics.

I gave it four stars because I think it's an excellent compendium but I wouldn't say the earth moved for me as a result of reading it.

Objectivity is something hard to find, even in numbers.

It covers how to use these numbers to revise one's business strategy to meet these numbers, and the new and updated edition offers more facts and references to use in formulating one's own marketing plan. "Marketing Metrics" is a reference any marketer should have on hand.

You can't manage it if you can't measure it--and this authoritative book details metrics for every aspect of marketing, from profit margins and product portfolios to pricing, promotion, and the Web. Although I was a fan of the 1st edition, the 2nd edition is even more useful because it covers standard metrics for online communications. Especially strong: The chapter on pricing strategy, which explains a variety of calculations and measures for making good pricing decisions. In short, this book is a must-have reference for every marketing manager.
