I made a good use of this book by reading the marketing orientation chapter, especially 7Ps theory.
I just fell in love with the author of this book in 2012 when I took admission in MBA(Marketing).

Philip Kotler is one of the most regarded authority in the field of marketing.
This Kotler's book is a must-read for every marketing student. The book contains complete fundamental contents on the subject; namely, notion of STP, marketing mix, strategic marketing. It is very comprehensive work. Its detailed explanation on several topics could infuriate some readers who need to know only succinct ideas.

Future generations should consider an editor.
Case Studies: 5/5
Relevancy for the present time: 5/5
Overall: The book deals with marketing in all of its shade and shape. It isn't just a textbook, it can be used as a guide for any marketer. Of course, it is not an exhaustive book teaching everything but this one is a must read.
If you are interested in case studies of companies around the world then this will enlighten you with new ideas.
I could have used more diagrams and flowcharts since I'm a visual learner, but that's the only negative. It's a good read on the subject.
I waded my way through a lot of marketing books but I did think that this was one of the best ones to read.
