Reviews - What do customers think about Marketing Warfare?
Great Book with Great Info Feb 18, 2008
If you are looking for a book to help influence your strategies when it comes to marketing this is the book for you. It takes war tactics from all throughout history and applies the information to modern business strategies. Examples of modern companies such as McDonalds are how the authors convey the strategies to conventional business.
Marketing 101 Jul 20, 2007
Regardless of whether you like the "warfare" analogies or not, the concepts discussed in this book is Marketing 101 for marketers.
First Ries/Trout explain which method of attack your company should use depending on its position in the marketplace. Then they describe what each position should do. Then they use some great classic case studies like the beer wars, cola wars, and computer wars.
Usually I hate these "outdated" books but the content in here is classic. They've updated the book and critiqued their own predictions made 20 years ago. For example, with over 50% of the PC marketshare, they were certain that IBM would remain the leader. Ooops.
Highly recommended for marketers.
Of all the books, this one is the weakest Mar 30, 2007
I found this one to be the weakest of all the books by Ries and Trout. As Creative Director of AUDIN Web Design, it just didn't capture my interest like their other books. Don't get me wrong, I think these authors are geniuses and I love their books. This one just didn't do it for me; I think it was the warfare motif. I'm not a pacifist, but it just didn't work for me: Warfare as Marketing. The funny thing is that I actually bought this book twice: once ten years ago in paper back and then again in hardback more recently. That goes to show you how forgettable I thought this book was. If you are on a real tight budget, buy a different book by these authors.
