Adit Chouhan, Author of the Book & Renowned Marketing Expert, comments, “No management school prepares a budding marketing professional for the real world. Most business courses end up offering only theoretical knowledge on marketing. Filling in this crucial gap, this book offers practical tips to marketing strategy, planning and execution. It is a quick guide to the hands-on side of marketing as opposed to the hundreds of theoretical books available on the subject. And, I feel it will be of great help to management students interested in a marketing career, fresh marketing professionals who have recently started working and budding entrepreneurs coming from non-marketing fields.”

I also found his writing style very friendly, conversational and non-boring.”

Amit Thete - General Manager, Marketing & CRM – Mercedes Benz, India, says, “it's good to see a literature which speaks about the grassroots of marketing from someone's hands on experience. Much relevant & rational for the beginner professionals, the book can act as a mentor in itself for a proper onboarding of young marketers to the real world.Adit’s style of writing is simple making it easier to understand the topics covered."

Hemant Arora, Senior Vice President, Times  Network and Business Head, Times Influence, commenting on the book, says, “This book is not about theory or 35,000 feet perspective but about ground reality of Marketing in every chapter. The core KRA’s of marketing as a function are manifested in form of each of the chapters in a sequential, logical way to the extent that one could achieve excellence in marketing by ensuring a focus on each one of them. Should be picked up by everyone who is; and who wants to be a part of the religion called Marketing.”

Praseed Prasad, Head of Media, Flipkart says, “It's great to see that we have such books coming out especially from young wizards like Adit, as they would definitely bring in a new perspective to new age marketing.”

Col(Dr) Sneh V Sharma, Director General, Amity Business School, Pune/Mumbai says, “This book would be extremely resourceful and ingenious for management students, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs; and can prove to be an excellent guide for marketing professionals beginning their careers. The specialty of the book is in practical know-how of the marketing concepts and its talking about something beyond the so-called marketing jargons.”
