The stories are arranged into sections covering brand origins, brand naming and identity, marketing strategy, communication, innovation, repositioning and renovation, with a moral at the end of every story. For each story, the author has drawn a marketing principle that can be applied to many brand and marketing challenges businesses face today.

Packed with compelling anecdotes illustrating how to gain increased visibility, cultivate a loyal following and establish a reputation of being the best in the market, this book provides the reader with a fully-equipped toolbox for building a winning brand!
