Editorial Reviews

"Building Brand Authenticity is a welcome book that provides substance, style, and examples of successes and failures in building and maintaining brand identity... Beverland's book provides 'outside America' insights (e.g., "employ a brand historian") that are both refreshing and thought-provoking. Summing up: Highly recommended." CHOICE
