Review by Katherine Lemon, Boston College, Carroll School of Management, Executive Director of the Marketing Science Institute: “Ofek, Muller, and Libai have provided a user-friendly, powerful approach that effectively puts a monetary value on innovations. By combining key insights on how new innovations are adopted with how customer relationships develop and create value for firms, the authors have come upon a winning combination to fuel growth. Whether you lead the marketing efforts, the R&D efforts, finance, or the entire company, you need to read this book.”

Review by Russ Winer, Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University: “In taking a practical look at how managers can use diffusion of innovations modeling, the authors have themselves taken an innovative perspective by merging that work with lifetime customer value research. The result is a book that is both easy to read and rigorous with many examples and tips on how to implement their ideas. This book should be on every manager’s shelf.”

Review by Jeffrey Hartley, Technical Director, Global Consumer and Product Research, General Motors Corporation: "I was amazed at how much is known about the diffusion of innovations, given the vast complexities of markets and social networks. This book does a wonderful job of laying out the framework and current knowledge."
