From the PublisherEmanuel Rosen Author of The Anatomy of Buzz The Influentials is one of the best business books I've read in recent years. Packed with rich data collected over several decades, the book explains how to identify Influentials and clarifies many misconceptions about them. Clear, insightful, and extremely well researched, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in marketing or public opinion.
Philip Kotler S. C. Johnson Distinguished Professor of International Marketing, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, and author of Kotler on Marketing Keller and Berry have done a superb job in presenting data and ideas on who the Influentials are and how to work with and through them. This is what the New Marketing is all about.
Seth Godin Author of Permission Marketing This is a groundbreaking (and breathtaking) book. It starts with a brilliant insight and backs it up with so much logic and so many facts that the conclusions are irrefutable. It leaves only two questions: Are you an Influential? And what are you going to do about integrating this book's insight into your job, your passions, and your life?
Daniel Yankelovich Chairman, Public Agenda and Viewpoint Learning, Inc. The study of the nation's opinion leaders is one of social science's most useful endeavors, and Keller and Berry have now added to Roper's distinguished work in the field. What makes their book so enlightening is the rich, detailed, factual picture they draw of how the most active community leaders and forerunner consumers interact with the rest of us. The book is must reading not only for marketers, but also for everyone interested in how our society and culture function.
