The book is established as essential reading for all serious professional marketers and students of marketing, both undergraduates and those on professional courses for CIM and CAM. Above all it provides a practical, hands-on approach for implementing every single concept included in the text.

A book reaching the quantities sold of Marketing Plans must be a book that is really used. It is not difficult to see why. Malcolm McDonald writes clearly about what to do in marketing and how to do it. Unlike many academic marketing writers, he will never let you forget that marketing ends with -ing.'
Kenneth Simmonds, Professor of Marketing and International Business, London Business School

It is clearly and powerfully written and it probably the best book on the theory and practice of marketing planning ever written. It is a best-seller in Europe and I strongly recommend the book to anyone with an interest in marketing planning.'
Warren J. Keegan, Professor of International Business and Marketing Director, Institute for Global Business Strategy, Pace University, New York

I am extremely impressed by the step by step lucidity of what is presented.'
Dr D. H. Eaton, North Carolina University

Malcolm McDonald is clearly one of the most respected Professors of Marketing in Europe and the author of a number of outstanding books. The fact that Marketing Plans has been such a massive seller offers testimony of this. McDonald writes with clarity and insight that is becoming increasingly rare today. It is powerful, up to date and has proved that it works. I commend it to you!'
