Top Customer Reviews
I like the way the Author thinks of brand management in a holistic way, from a multi-stakeholder and multi-channel perspective. Is common to find business and brand management books that focus on very specific aspects of marketing. This book opens your mind to a whole new level. A level where multiple variables are interconnected, from what you learn in the book not paying attention to the whole system and they way it works jeopardizes sustainable growth.
I must read for CEOs, Brand, Communications and Marketing leaders.
