Trout, popularizer of "positioning" and president of a prestigious marketing firm (Trout and Partners), uses real-world examples of marketing and management gone wrong. After examining companies like Levi Strauss, AT&T, Xerox, Burger King, and Miller Brewing, Trout identifies the ten most common mistakes made by these big brands and develops a set of expert guidelines for managers and marketers to use to build, protect, manage, and expand their companies as well as compete in today's fierce global economy. One of the most interesting chapters is titled "Trouble in the Wind: Brands with Unresolved Problems," in which Trout briefly discusses the current problems of four well-known companies. These companies, like others, have made unnecessary mistakes and have shattered consumer perceptions. Business practitioners, researchers, and students will all use insights and learn techniques gleaned the case studies presented here. For CEO's, Trout's message is summed up in his final sentence: "Remember the Titanic." For all business collections. --Susan C. Awe, Univ. of New Mexico Lib., Albuquerque (Library Journal, August 2001)
 
Trout (Differentiate or Die) does the obvious in his latest book, rehashing the demise of well-known failures such as Xerox and Miller Brewing, and his redundant preaching of unoriginal strategies may irritate. But readers will find salvation in his straightforward, engaging prose and the constant hammering home of lessons (GM failed because it lost touch with the market, and AT&T tanked when it lost its focus). The book's first part is an excellent reminder of what managers should and should not do with a brand, making this a primer for the uninitiated. (Oct.) (Publishers Weekly, October 1, 2001)
 
The basic message of this snappy, readable book is nothing new, particularly for readers of the author's previous books. Success with consumers comes from clearly differentiating your product from competitors' and then relentlessly focusing your marketing and product development efforts on the differences. But here the long case studies add richness to the argument. In earlier decades, Trout explains, strong brands commanded a far bigger share of the marketplace than they do now. As affluent consumer became increasingly choosy about their purchases, the market segmented into far smaller groups. To maintain their reach, managers quite naturally turned to product extension, but that inevitably weakened the appeal of the base brands and helped turn their industries into low-margin commodity business. For brand managers under corporate pressure to grow rather than retrench, Trout has no answer other than urging discipline. But the colorful stories of failure and the hardheaded, concrete advice make for an engaging sermon. (Harvard Business Review, October 2001)
