Book on marketing cases from emerging markets is out

Finally received hard copies of our case study book today. Even though I have seen the proofs and the digital versions before, I cannot describe the feeling I felt when I held the book with my name on the cover, in my hands. My first book, even though it is as the editor.

It has been more than a year since I first proposed the book in our department meeting and there were times when it looked like the book was never going to be published. However, it has been published and I really have to thank Prashanth Mahagaonkar from Springer for his patience and allowing me to push forward the dateline three times.

This was a joint effort of several academics in the Department of Marketing and Advertising, Coventry Business School along with their collaborators. I would like to thank all the contributors, especially my co-editors, Sanjit Kumar Roy and Eva Kipnis.

Though I said "never again" when I finally sent off the final copy, seeing this book on my desk has changed my mind.
