'First rate and comprehensive. This book has got it just right: a rich blend of academic underpinning and practical examples in a very readable style. You are encouraged to participate in the almost distance-learning approach and via the innovative and thought provoking 'stop-points'.'

'Paul Copley's Marketing Communications Management is an excellent text for exploring marketing communications in the 21st century. It skilfully balances the theory and practice of marketing communications, and, moreover, the blend of examples drawn from a variety of organizations, e.g. non-profit/profit, SME/MNC, industrial/consumer, demonstrate how marketing communications may be successfully and, in some cases, unsuccessfully applied.'
