Publisher's Summary

There are laws of nature, so why shouldn’t there be laws of marketing?
As Al Ries and Jack Trout - the world-renowned marketing consultants and best-selling authors of Positioning - note, you can build an impressive airplane, but it will never leave the ground if you ignore the laws of physics, especially gravity. Why then, they ask, shouldn’t there also be laws of marketing that must be followed to launch and maintain winning brands? In The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing, Ries and Trout offer a compendium of 22 innovative rules for understanding and succeeding in the international marketplace. From the Law of Leadership, to The Law of the Category, to The Law of the Mind, these valuable insights stand the test of time and present a clear path to successful products. Violate them at your own risk.

Would've been outdated in the 1600s

They somehow stretched one sentence: "occupy a unique place in the minds of consumers", which had already been stretched into an entire book (Positioning) into 22 rules. Although to be fair, they did also include a few terrible generalisations (every market becomes a 2 horse race eventually) and clichés (don't get arrogant) for good measure.

Needs Updating

Most of the core content is solid but it's badly in need of a revised version. Originally written around 1992 so their examples of success are antiquated. When one of their examples of a "poorly" created marketing strategy of a company that "probably will struggle" is Microsoft....it makes you question everything they say.
