MARKETING EXPRESS 2/e is Pride/Ferrell's condensed version of their FOUNDATIONS OF MARKETING, 4/e. In this edition of MARKETING EXPRESS, the authors do not include the cases and end-of-book appendices in FOUNDATIONS, and thus offer greater flexibility for those who prefer a briefer text with limited pedagogy. MARKETING EXPRESS 2/e includes solid, traditional coverage of marketing fundamentals--product, price, distribution, and promotion--as well as coverage of today's ever-changing marketing environment. The design incorporates advertisements, photos, screen shots, and boxes throughout the text to grab student interest and help make the content real and relevant to today's students.
