Darwin’s Brands isn’t a how-to book. It is…a “novel” about Indian advertising. The collection of stories in this book are examples of some brands that have used advertising well…Taking these brands as examples, the author lays down the fundamental rules of how to push an ad campaign and turn it into something exceptional…The architecture of the book is interesting…Halve’s review of published work on each subject is very extensive; most of it is quite recent.
Engaging study of how enterprises successfully connect with consumers through brand imagery.
The style of writing makes the strategies simple. [The author] has taken great effort in chronologically weaving together the brand strategies with the product category’s progress and status.
The stories are readable and packed with historical anecdotes, interviews and tidbits that are not commonly known….[the book has] been designed as study material for classrooms, which deserves support because there is an acute paucity of Indian cases for use in classrooms…[the book] presents the brand building process in a short, easily readable format….it’s a great addition to the documentation of successful Indian brands. A must read.
