It is rich in models, theories and cases and offers an insight into the operations of many different service industries. -Prof Okoso-Amaa, Dar es Salaam Business School, Mzumbe University, Tanzania.
Services Marketing 3rd Edition is packed full of interesting, up-to-date case studies from all over the world. It is written in a refreshing style that peppers theory with practical scenarios. It is a tremendous read as the examples bring the book to life. -Alexandra J. Kenyon, Chartered Marketer, Centre for Hospitality and Retailing, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK.

Both the 'Postcards from Practice' and the 'It's in the News' articles are excellent new additions. -David Ratcliffe, Senior Lecturer in Marketing, Northampton Business School, UK.
