Branding is so powerful that it touches upon more disciplines than other branches of marketing. Figuring out why branding works and where it might go in the future requires insights from several fields, including anthropology, advertising, management and psychology. Thus, this anthology takes the perfect approach to presenting the latest information about branding. A single author would have difficulty keeping up with so much multidisciplinary research. This worthwhile book ranges from the basic to the esoteric, and from the practical to the theoretical. It offers numerous case studies and advice about brand building in particular industries; it also includes an interesting discussion of the anthropology of branding. getAbstract recommends this book to marketing managers: Even experienced, knowledgeable branding practitioners are likely to encounter new ideas and strategies in these pages.
