MEDIA REVIEWS

"The way firms go-to-market is rapidly evolving. As a result, the role of the sales function continues to become more strategic, with the salesperson driving value for both selling and buying organizations. Today's college students (future sales professionals) must understand the new sales paradigm and Johnston and Marshall's Contemporary Selling will help them do just that. The authors introduce relevant examples and provide a current perspective that are sure to benefit faculty and students alike." - Andrea Dixon, PhD., Baylor University, USA

"Mark Johnston and Greg Marshall have produced a masterpiece of a textbook for selling! Contemporary Selling is comprehensive, practical and accessible. This book encompasses the theory and practice of professional selling... presented as a logical and progressive learning journey for the student. Packed with knowledge, examples and exercises, it is a "must have" for any sales educator or trainer." - Beth Rogers, Portsmouth Business School, UK

"This book is a one stop shop for students for selling topics. Authors take the students through details of selling skills, and describe the ways to develop relationship selling. The descriptions and illustrations about the selling process provide a clear focus on relationship building and consultative selling methods. Chapters are filled with real life examples and vignettes that compel even the most distracted multi-tasking students to pay attention to practitioners' viewpoints." - Jay Mulki, PhD., Northeastern University, USA

"Johnston and Marshall's Contemporary Selling is a valuable asset for mastering the skills of selling in recent times. Discussions compiled through fourteen logical chapters are easy-to-follow but exhaustive in content. Some of the book's key strengths are its discussion of the relationship between technological change and selling, its new perspectives on territory and time management, and its treatment of globalized environment issues as they impact selling. All in all, this book offers great insights for any course on selling." - Kavita Sharma, University of Delhi, India

'Johnston and Marshall successfully deliver a very readable text with everything you need to know about selling and the sales process. Its approach is very contemporary. Particularly insightful for postgraduate students with many valuable supporting learning material. This text will be recommended to all my students on 'selling and sales strategies' modules.' - Tony Douglas, Edinburgh Napier University Business School, Edinburgh

'This textbook facilitates an outstanding introduction to business-to-business selling. New sales students often approach selling with some skepticism and bring with them the stereotype of the salesperson as a mere product peddler willing to manipulate naive prospects. Contemporary Selling will open students' eyes to the concept of the mutually beneficial exchange - in the competitive marketplace, sellers can only satisfy customers by building relationships that center around the customer's needs and customers will only commit to sellers willing to do so. I have used previous editions of this book and have found it invaluable - the new edition's inclusion of sales technology is particularly exciting. With this textbook, Dr. Johnston and Dr. Marshall are providing an outstanding resource at a particularly critical time when students need to understand the true nature of selling and the vital role that salespeople play in fostering a functioning marketplace and a thriving economy.' - Ronald L. Jelinek, PhD., Providence College, USA

"If you are hunting for a book to teach young college students the art and science of modern selling, look no further than Contemporary Selling by Mark Johnston and Greg Marshall. The book must rank among the top few on the subject. What sets it apart are its honing the concept of value creation as the underpinning of today's selling, the expert advice from practitioners, and inclusion of ethics and global perspectives... just a few powerful ideas that make the book what it shouts aloud - contemporary." - Bala Shankar, Adjunct Faculty, Singapore Management University; Consultant, Entrepreneur
