"This book cleverly and insightfully makes explicit a clear (if upsetting to some) trend, i.e. 'all the world's a stage.' As the emphasis has moved from the physical product (or service) to customer experience, how consumers relate to products in their own authored "play" has increasingly become the focus of marketing thought and practice. Using a variety of well--known (e.g. Victoria's Secret, Intel) and less obvious (e.g., the Guggenheim) examples, the book explores the implications of a focus on the show/experience in an entertaining way. Importantly, however, the book also provides a seven--step procedure for moving from identification of a desired image to the quantitative measurement of performance. This raises the book above the level of identifying a phenomenon to the position of suggesting something useful to do about it. The real value of a book is whether it causes the reader to think as well as stay awake. This one succeeds on both counts."
--Don Lehmann, George E. Warren Professor of Business, Columbia University Graduate School of Business
"This will be one of the most important business books you'll ever read! It will convince you you're really in show business and that if you're not, you'd better be. Implement the star--studded findings the authors reveal, and you'll have a huge competitive advantage over your competition. Let the show begin."
--Jason Jennings, worldwide bestselling author of It's Not the Big That Eat the Small--It's the Fast That Eat the Slow and Less Is More

--Kevin Lane Keller, E.B. Osborn Professor of Marketing, Amos Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College
"Schmitt, Rogers, and Vrotsos demonstrate vividly that there is a New Marketing Mix without which your products won't grab any attention, spark any interest, or build any memorable experience."
--Philip Kotler, Northwestern Kellogg School of Business, and author of Marketing Management, 11th edition
