OVERVIEW: 
AVOIDING CRITICAL MARKETING ERRORS: How to Go from Dumb to Smart Marketing may offend marketers who don't recognize they can do much more with marketing, and it will probably disturb those who are satisfied with the status quo. 
Marketing is underutilized and losing its relevance. Ignorance of proven principles and failure to adopt best practices and quality processes is at the root of the decline of marketing's role and relevance in the present era. This decline is exacerbated by marketers not being held accountable or accepting accountability for providing a clear line-of-sight in driving financial outcomes and growing healthy brands. 
That's not smart. It's dumb marketing! Yet, in today's "age of abundance and sameness," where generally acceptable quality (GAQ) rules, smart marketing is more essential than ever. 
This book, written by Richard Czerniawski, a veteran career marketer, tackles critical marketing errors, those grave blunders, slip-ups and missteps, both of omission and commission, that not only lead to underperformance but further threaten marketing relevance and undermine brand potential. Importantly, it addresses what all marketers and their organizations need to do to achieve smart marketing, so it matters where it counts: in the marketplace. 
If you are one of those other marketers and senior managers who recognize they are, and/or marketing is, underutilized—regardless of the current level—and want to improve this situation, then this book will prove invaluable to you. If you are one of these marketers, you will not be offended by the content. Instead, it will provoke your thinking and assist you in your pursuit of achieving marketing excellence. 
More Praise for AVOIDING CRITICAL MARKETING ERRORS: HOW TO GO FROM DUMB TO SMART MARKETING:

"I can attest that Richard's focus on genuine marketing excellence delivers the incremental sales impact, ROI and accountability that everyone in the organization should demand." -  Peter Valenti, Division President, Hologic 
"This is a no-nonsense book with practical advice and plenty of examples on doing smart marketing from a successful, veteran marketer." Santosh Chaturvedi, VP, New Products Planning & Portfolio Strategy, Global Oncology, EMD Serono 
"This book will make you laugh at outrageous gaffes, wince in recognition of your own mistakes, learn how to avoid marketing traps, and most importantly, put your brand on a bullet train headed straight for brand loyalty." Robin Shapiro, Global President, TBWA/WORLDHEALTH

    A wake-up call for middle class Americans who feel trapped in a post-crisis economic slump, The Unfair Trade is a riveting exposé of the vast global financial system whose flaws are the source of our economic malaise. Our livelihoods are now, more than ever, beholden to the workings of its imbalances and inequities. 
    The trillions of dollars that make up the flow of international finance—money that is often steered away from the people who deserve it the most—have not just undermined the lives of working and middle class Americans. It is a world-wide phenomenon that is changing the culture of Argentina; destroying the factory system in Northern Mexico, enabling drug cartels to recruit thousands of young men into their gangs; that has taken down the economies of Iceland, Ireland, Spain, Greece, and possibly Italy; and is driving American companies such as a 60-year-old family owned manufacturer of printed circuit boards to shutter all but one of its factories. Veteran journalist Michael J. Casey has traveled the world—from China to Iceland, Spain to Argentina, Indonesia to Australia—recounting extraordinary stories about ordinary people from one continent to another whose lives are inextricably linked.  By tracing the flow of money and goods across the world, he illustrates how an American homeowner's life is shaped by the same economic and social policies that determine those of a low wage migrant worker on an assembly line in China. This combination of financial acumen, narrative-driven reporting, and compelling story-telling gives The Unfair Trade a unique human angle. 
    Casey shows that our economic problems are largely caused by political agendas that prevent the free market from encouraging fair competition and impeding the allocation of resources. Until governments work together to make this global system more efficient—until China removes incentives for its citizens to save excessively, for example, or the U.S. ends the de facto subsidies enjoyed by politically powerful banks—the global playing field will remain lopsided, job creation will lag, and our economies will be vulnerable to new crises.
