This is a text book for my Master's degree. With that said, my four star rating is based upon text books, not all books I have read.

Marketing Management is a very well laid out and clear text book. There are multiple real-life examples in every chapter of marking strategies that different companies have used either successfully or unsuccessfully.

This is the 13th edition and is very up-to-date. It addresses many of the latest trends around viral marketing and utilization of web based social/busin...more

Quando a primeira edição deste livro foi publicada, em 1967, lançou conceitos inovadores que mudaram o modo como as pessoas viam o marketing. Quase 40 anos depois, na 12a edição, ele continua a surtir o mesmo efeito - tópicos como marketing holístico, brand equity e marketing experimental prometem fazer com que as pessoas invistam em uma perspectiva mais ampla e integrada do marketing.
É exatamente essa capacidade de antecipar tendências que faz de Administração de marketing o livro de referênci...more

Philip Kotler is a genius, to begin with. Most people think marketing is the evil force behind their spending hands or the science behind making people spend their money on them. To break with this marketing notion is to truly bring it's colours to the surface as a science of matching need and offer. But Kotler only does this as a way to transcend that expectation.

Kotler concepts formal marketing as a tool for achieving a new marketing paradigm - more responsible and competent, more compassive a...more
If the zombie apocalypse ever comes to pass, my weapon of choice would be Kotler & Ketler's Marketing Management book. It's a humongous heavy paperback that makes for an excellent blunt weapon. I can barely wait to squash some zombie's brains with it. It also contains very elegant writing and some gorgeous pictures. I wasn't the most dedicated student of management ever, but somehow I ended up reading this beast of a book twice. Marketing management, however, is not something you learn from...more

I read this book back when I was in school and it was a great introduction to marketing basics. I wouldn't recommend this being your only book about marketing, there are other ones that are more "hands on" that give you more specific case studies that translate marketing theory into actual results.

However it does introduce and explain many core marketing concepts and is a great place to start learning about how to get to know your customers and how to speak their language.
This is the worst textbook I have ever read. It takes 700+ pages to poorly define marketing buzz words while failing to provide anything of substance or utility. This is not a marketing textbook, it's a guide for communicating with other marketing people. There's more content in the 48-page marketing chapter of my performing arts management textbook than in this entire book.

I just fell in love with the author of this book in 2012 when I took admission in MBA(Marketing). When I read a book, what I do expect is whatever written inside should be interactive enough to get into my average I.Q brain. The Philip Kotler's marketing management book is the only book of my syllabus that I've read without yawning for a moment.

All the topics have been covered, every edition get updated so well that it leaves probably no topic of marketing. Moreover the examples that's been cite

One of the best business book.This is still my personal reference in marketing after 11 years of being a marketer .His examples, the way of structuring the business plan and introducing the marketing concepts are extraordinary .It is a valuable asset for both MBA students and marketers .Just take your time in reading and try to disseminate knowledge with colleagues and friends .

The book is really simple and easy introduction for non- business guys but I think it is very big it can be much better if the author tried to summarize it
It's a very good book to introduce the comprehensive marketing framework and thinking ways.

[Textbook] A comprehensive compendium of Marketing strategy and knowledge. This text is chock full of models and guidelines. I've used some of this in my day-to-day work, as well as to inform my classroom studies.

I'm not in a position to compare alternatives for use as a Strategic Marketing Management course textbook. However, this seemed more than adequate. There's a lot of material here, and it wasn't uncommon to spend 5+ hours a week to read and digest two or three chapters of this work.
