About the book:

Praised for its no nonsense approach to engaging students and conveying key learning outcomes and for striking a good balance between sociological and psychological aspects of consumer behaviour, the new edition now features increased coverage of social media, digital consumption and up-to-date marketing practice.

Written from a European perspective, international in its scope and with an array of global international examples and cases from a variety of geographic locations and different industry sectors threaded throughout the text, students’ understanding and retention of the subject is encouraged through innovative learning features including:

  • ‘how to impress your examiner’ boxes - ideas and tips for what an examiner may be looking for to help students get the best possible grades in their assessments.
  • ‘consumer behaviour in action’ boxes – focus on consumer decisions allowing students to focus on the applications of the concepts and theories underpinning the motivations of consumers – something they are likely to do in their future careers as marketers.
  • ‘challenging the status quo’ boxes – encouraging students to think outside the box, think critically and exercise their problem solving skills.

Suitable for students with little or no background knowledge of consumer behaviour.
