The Six Rules of Brand Revitalization, Second Edition presents an intensely practical blueprint for resurrecting or revitalizing any brand, and driving it to unprecedented levels of success.


Larry Light and Joan Kiddon illuminate their blueprint with up-to-date case studies and specific examples from their unsurpassed brand experience, offering detailed "dos" and "don'ts" for everything from segmentation to RandD to executive leadership.
