How to Aim Marketing at Men

Mark Tungate explores how to market to the elusive, desirable male demographic by following a fictitious young businessman throughout his day.

A really great book not only to learn the basics of marketing to men, but also to have a more thorough background on various industries. In each chapter the author gives you a history of the most important players on the market and why they succeeded to be leaders, especially in the male segment.

The book is easy to read, as well as enjoyable, as it accompanies a man through his day, like a story. Do not expect to find various positioning within the male target, because this book is mainly about

Good, sound material on the changing man. Not too breathy either. Helpful character descriptions put flesh on the meat.
