3.0 out of 5 stars A decent overview of the field and its methods and issues Jan. 5 2011
By Zain Khandwala - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book to read for personal/professional interest (I work in the field of marketing analytics), under the advice that this is the preeminent text in the field today.

The first half of the text is very good, as it adequately surveys (no pun intended) the marketing research field and presents methods for research (and research instrument) design.

The second half pertains to technical/quantitative issues, and, while serving as a good primer, is a little too superficial to be of much use in application. For instance, in discussing sampling techniques the author makes a point of saying that simple random sampling (SRS) is seldom used in marketing research due to certain inherent weaknesses, and then proceeds to discuss a few alternative techniques. This is all well and good, but when it comes to presenting the quantitative determination of sample size, the author elaborates on how to determine sample sizes for performing SRS, and then advises the reader to look elsewhere for determining sample sizes for the techniques he had previously cited as being more common/relevant. This type of treatment presented itself frequently in the latter half of the book, and became frustrating.

All things considered, this is probably a very good book for MBA students, but there might be more rigorous treatments available for those who intend to work in the field.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lazy Textbook Feb. 1 2014
By Jen Lamoureux - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When a textbook is as expensive as this one, I generally have high expectations. I just have to ask, how can the publishers justify a textbook retailing for THIS MUCH and still be too lazy to include a glossary in the back of the book?

Also, the material is far too repetitive. I expect some repetition in textbooks to reinforce base concepts, but I think there's probably thirty percent that could be cut out of this text without any detrimental effect.
