The first half of the book presents some helpful mental models for approaching brand and consumer insights in tandem. After that there's a digression into some concepts revolving around the ad industry itself and the specific jobs therein. That part was less relevant to me, and therefore far less interesting. Check out the first part and leave the rest unless you're in the industry.

There are some very solid concepts presented here, but the book itself is such an eyesore (huge, dopey-looking type in cheesy, conflicting fonts) that I was having a hard time taking it seriously. Also, so many of the examples are ridiculously out-of-date (videodiscs?!) that I found myself detaching. I'd recommend Luke Sullivan's Squeeze This, Whipple for a much more contemporary and fun-to-read book that hits many of the same topics presented here, and more.

The concepts in this book are on a have-to-know basis for those in the advertising profession, however the book is not a must-read and is considerably dated.

This is a very simple book describing a fairly complex idea, and it was one of the texts I used when I instructed the Integrated Marketing Communications course at the University of Washington.

I'd score it higher if the text and illustrations weren't so large. I wonder if this would be an e-book if published today.

But still, durn good thinking here!

Understanding customer insights is incredibly important. This is the best book I've read on the topic. Lisa does a terrific job of highlighting the role of insight, how to identify one and how to use one.
A classic! A little bit out-of-date, but easy-to-read, inspiring, insightful, full of knowledge and expertise, and really enlighting for anyone who may want to work in the advertising business.
Really simple and clear book---easy and fun read... if you are into advertising and learning to do it better. I read it for my account planning class.

Recommends it for: advertising majors looking for fluff.
Very clear and appallingly easy to read for a supposed text book. The typeface is gigantic, and a huge turn off. The organization is a bit unclear.

This is an Account Planning handbook/workbook. The author provides a clear method for identifying the 'sweet spot' of the market.

Great book with great insight. This is probably the core of my knowledge on marketing and advertising.

Refreshing in simplicity of a complex matter. Finding the consumer insight never seemed so reachable.
