4.0 out of 5 stars Good Marketing Research Book August 20, 2009
By Plinio
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good marketing research book. It covers all the main topics with extreme clarity. I'd recommend it to anyone who wishes to have a deep overview on this subject. After reading the book you can both do research yourself or if you are in a management position gain a better understanding of the available opportunity in this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Understand May 15, 2010
I used this text for a master's class in research. It did a great job of explaining this often difficult to understand subject. The book provides plenty of examples and always relates the subject to the real world. Wording is down to earth, too. Very helpful. Some of the later chapters that deal with sample size determination, etc were difficult, but it's a hard subject. And I hate math. I have spent much time in previous classes needing to troll the Internet for info because the books we used weren't well written. Thanks to the authors for writing a great book that made my semester so much easier than others. Everyone should write texts this organized and thoughtful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good information, sometimes hard to follow text. December 29, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There's great information about surveys. The samples, examples, and the descriptions of different methodologies are quite useful. Some chapters are easy to read, but a few are difficult to follow because of the writing style. I installed and used SPSS (trial version is on the CD) which worked just fine. If you're interested in the detailed statistical analysis, there's information about that too.
