Format: Hardcover
I have used Principles of Marketing by Philip Kotler in my university days of the 1980s when I was learning the basics of marketing. It is gratifying to note that my favourite marketing reference book has been kept up to date. The latest international edition, the 11th edition (2005) is really the top quality book that one would expert of Kotler and his colleague.

"Principles of Marketing" is an excellent textbook on the current marketing trends. It is an enjoyable and practical book. After reading the book, one will really understand that marketing is all about understanding the customer needs and finding solutions that delight the customer. The reader will come to appreciate that marketing is a philosophy of doing business for those organisations that are going to thrive in the current highly competitive global markets.

This delightful book should be very useful for both newcomers to marketing and for those like me who studied marketing years ago and are at the risk of being left behind by the current marketing trends that exploit the vast opportunities presented by the internet.

This book extensively covers marketing concepts, principles and practices and presents real-life case examples and applications of successes and failures in the marketplace (and why). Learn marketing terms, concepts, and applications from this college textbook. The book layout helps with what could otherwise be a tedious read. Text and images show why some products have greater customer appeal and success than others. Each chapter provides an overview of key points and application scenarios. This might best be read with a study group. Excellent text - highly recommended.

I had to buy this book as part of an entrepreneur class, and I'm glad I did. It covers the basic principles of marketing that you wouldn't know unless you had a background in marketing. While not difficult stuff, marketing has a lot of facets that are just not perceivable to the normal person. This book was thoughtfully written and does a great job of explaining the basics.

I have this book for my marketing module while being a student at NTU as an engineering student. This book rocks! Truly a classic in the education field since it has many examples, easy to read, colorful with diagrams and illustration. It is not just an academic book that lays down the principles / concepts but the case studies / examples can inspire one to make real the learning. It gives real numbers so its not all about hot air and talk. There are focus on technology and ethics so its a forward-looking book. At this time of writing, it has another two more new editions. No surprises.

I read once again about IBM or Harley Davidson case study in the book and it is easy to find with its index page specially for finding any mention of organization. Chapter 1 on the introduction of NASCAR touches me as I went to my first live race at Charlotte while I was in USA and reading about it as a chapter introduction gives me an overview.

I read this book cover to cover as it was easy to read and my book was littered with tags to pages on the concepts my lecturuers focus on. However, since I am an IT professional and still am... the book is gathering dust. I have to let it go in July 2012 to the next undergraduate who might need it more than I do.

It's a text book...what can I say. I bought for my Marketing Class in college because I needed it. The only thing I loved about getting it on amazon was the price!
