Format: Hardcover
I'm a marketing professor who recently went through the process of reviewing 6 different textbooks for a Marketing Research class I'm about to start teaching, and this was by far my preferred choice. Most other textbooks (Aaker, Malhotra, Churchill, Lehman...) have an Ivory Tower feel to them, as if the authors know how to design a perfect lab study, but they've never in their life been out there conducting a real market research study (actually, I know some of these authors, and that's exactly the truth -- they're brilliant people, but they've spent their entire adult lives at universities, and it shows in their books). McDaniel is the chair of a MSc in Marketing Research program (one of a few in the US and world), and Gates runs his own large market research firm, and they succeed in bringing this interesting subject to life. There's a lot of interesting anecdotes and examples that give the reader insight in the kinds of issues you run into in the field, and this makes the book interesting to read.

Where the book's a bit weak is on multivariate statistics. Anyone interested in that I highly recommend the Hair et al. book on Multivariate Statistics (truly a superb book -- before my time in academia I worked in market research and everyone in quantitative marketing research loved this book). Every chapter follows the same systematic layout for what the tool does, the intuition behind it, what input data are needed, how to interpret the output... It's great as a reference but also good as a first source to learn from. Anyway, like I said, McDaniel and Gates is quite superficial on the multivariate statistics part, but I have to say that in practice you can go very far just running segment-level averages, crosstabs, and regressions, so I don't consider that a deadly flaw.

From "problem definition" to "survey design" and "data analysis," Marketing Research takes you through every step of the process with a good mix of theory and examples. This was a required textbook for my MBA marketing research class. The concepts are clear and material is presented interestingly. You can learn a lot just by reading the book, but it will be even more valuable as a reference to a class. Many of the concepts are best learned by conducting your own research studies. McDaniel designed the book with coursework in mind and offers plenty of real-world applications.

This book is excellent/essential for marketing research. It's interesting to read and gives an indepth knowledge of many things which help you excel if you are considering taking up marketing research. It doesn't go in depth of statistics used in marketing research but that's not even needed in many places.
