Marketing consultants Don and Heidi Schultz present a plain-language deconstruction of branding jargon in this guide for executives who want to understand branding and build brands. The book’s strength is its simplicity and clarity. At times, however, it reads like a series of articles that once were published separately, so that certain essential information is restated - often in virtually identical language. However, getAbstract.com finds that the information in the book is valuable, as is the authors’ thoughtful approach to branding. Their book merits a read by marketers and corporate decision makers.
