Baran and Galka have written a CRM text that accomplishes what we need. They organize and describe what we know, integrate the knowledge and point to where it will be going, then tie it all in an easy-to-read, appealing package. CRM is not going away and good books on it are hard to find, but this is one of them.

An excellent book that is both very informative and also interesting to read. It covers the whole cycle, from having the correct marketing strategy that fits the organisation and its workforce to the technological requirements for successful CRM. It should be on every B2B marketing director's bookshelf.
