About the Author

Although his name is unfamiliar to most managers, Stephen Brown is the Antichrist of marketing academia. He is disdainful of customer-centric approaches to marketing and, as a consequence, has clashed publicly with numerous luminaries. Professor of Marketing Research at the University of Ulster, Stephen has held visiting positions at Northwestern University, the University of California and the University of Utah, among others. He has written or co-edited 13 books, including Marketing Apocalypse, Postmodern Marketing and Romancing the Market. His papers have been published in Harvard Business Review, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Advertising, Business Horizons and many more, winning various awards along the way. Additional information is available on his website, www.sfxbrown.com
