    There are a few people who really helped me with this book. Gerald Goodhardt first introduced me to the study of consumer behaviour. Peter Clark encouraged me to start writing and others helped me to finish. Marylyn Carrigan gave me moral support throughout. Jan, Alex and Nick just knew I would do it.
