Description

Studying Marketing is packed full of lively debate and funny anecdotes covering topics marketing students are familiar with, such as key thinkers and concepts, and some they are not. It looks at areas most textbooks ignore, such as the development of marketing as a discipline and as an academic subject, and raises arguments that students haven't heard about in their lectures. Conceived by Chris Grey as an antidote to conventional textbooks, each book in the `Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap' series takes a core area of the curriculum and turns it on its head by providing a critical and sophisticated overview of the key issues and debates in an informal, conversational and often humorous way. Suitable for Marketing students at Undergraduate and Postgraduate level. Along with professionals involved in marketing and anyone interested in how marketing works.

Jim Blythe is Visiting Professor of Marketing at University of Plymouth, UK.

Currently he is trying to learn to grow vegetables (with limited success...), but he has a pilot's licence and has learned to play drums in a samba band, so the beat goes on. Jim has written 18 books, over 50 journal articles, and has contributed chapters to 8 other books. He has taught overseas, written open-learning packs for international training organisations and has been a Senior Examiner for the Chartered Institute of Marketing. His next venture is to study for a degree in modern languages - having left school at 16 he thinks it's time to get the education he missed out on. He holds four real degrees (including one fake), and therefore feels somewhat irritated that he is mainly known for winning the Cardiff heat of the TV show, Come Dine With Me. Perhaps the latest editions of his textbooks will help redress the balance a little...
