From Library Journal
This new edition of Positioning (McGraw, 1980), which Trout coauthored with Al Ries (the two teamed up more recently on Marketing Warfare, LJ 10/15/85), offers recent examples of effectively positioned products along with new topics such as the importance of images that appeal to the ear vs. the eye. The authors give primarily practical advice and write informally. One of their main premises is that brand extension is not repositioning. Rather than put different products under the same name, the company should use different brands, so that each has a clearly focused image. Repositioning involves changing this focus. Despite the subtitle, this book is not aimed at the consumer but at the advertising executive interested in the best way to present ideas to top management. The book can be quickly absorbed and appears to have been quickly pulled together, since it reads as a person might talk. Not essential, especially if the library owns the previous edition.?Sue McKimm, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, Ohio

With short, staccato bursts of information, each chapter no longer than 10 pages, Trout intrigues the reader long enough to listen to his new theories on positioning. If a market has shifted or an entity has lost its focus, positioning--or redefining the entity in the minds of its consumers--must occur. His discussion includes some amazing facts and statistics and six abbreviated case histories, including Lotus (before its IBM purchase), Carvel, KPMG Peat Marwick, George Bush, Entertainment Tonight, and Spain's national oil company. Irreverent, brash, and fun to read. Barbara Jacobs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Repositioning is shown as a melange of company strategy, branding strategy, business modelling and so on.
Worse of all, repositioning is designed after poor and unreliable market research data.
Still too much emphasis on communication to change perceptions, and little emphasis on company delivery as the true proof of company intention.
The market is not that dumb!
