This book is so effective in presenting the marketing principles and concepts. Very well organized and effective case studies and examples with clear explanation of everything. The Great Philip Kotler new edition book is amazing compared to old editions.

All "Principles" of Marketing; not theoric which I obsessed to understand. Finally I got it, marketing is not a science, it is a "discipline" which has scientific methods for measurement.

Another core reference in the field marketing, authored by one of the greatest marketing-theoretician. His book is the corner stone to understand marketing as subject to study.

Generally referred to as the Bible of Marketing, I will be teaching this book this semester so I did something the students will never do (although none will admit it), I read it cover to cover. (Reason I never read it before is I was not a marketing major in University, life just sort of pushed me in that direction.)

Felt the early chapters while very interesting were overly long. It feels like Phil over the years just kept adding and adding stuff. Took me SO long to read some of them -- I'm

A must-read for marketers, this book gives a really good basis for practice. It's written in an American manner, with lots of practical info, examples and case studies. Even if you are already a marketing graduate, it would do you a world of good to go through it and get familiar (or re-acquainted) with the main marketing principles.
Quite interesting book.

I've actually re-read this book, the first time I read it I was in school some 14-15 years ago. (Time flies so fast).
This is a gem of a book and it had still after years and years had a lot to teach me.

I actually read a previous version of the book I had from 2004-2005 some of the stuff was outdated and some of the stuff made you feel nostalgic.

The book has re-enforced and refreshed the marketing concepts which I had forgotten over the years. I would highly recommend this book to all students

It's useful, very informative, well- structured and clear but super long. You'll need a huge patience to read all the things written there. It took me 18 days to read the book.
