Preston G. Smith has worked exclusively for many years helping
manufacturing companies shorten their product development cycles,
initially as a staff consultant and now through his own consulting firm,
New Product Dynamics. Preston holds a PhD in engineering from Stanford
and is a certified management consultant.

Donald G. Reinersten began rapid development techniques in the early
1980's at McKinsey & Co. He draws upon extensive experience as both an
operations manager an a management consultant. He has a BS in Electrical
Engineering from Cornell, an MBA from Harvard, and heads Reinertsen &
Associates, a management consulting firm.

The authors show how companies have dramatically accelerated
development projects, and maintain that the secret lies in specific
management techniques--techniques that have the potential to increase
development speed by two or three fold, and more. Though some companies
already use these techniques, most do not. The typical manager doesn't
even know they exist.

"Provides the most complete step-by-step process for reducing
new-product cycle time and is undoubtedly one of the finest books yet
published on the subject. It should be required reading for any manager
involved in new product development."

Paul Hawken is founder of Erewhon, the largest distributor of natural
foods and founder/manager of Smith & Hawken, a quality garden tool mail
order house. Hawken has also authored The Next Economy.

Using numerous examples from various "grown" businesses, such as, Ben
& Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream, Patagonia and his own endeavors, Hawken
shows that successful businesses are actually the unique expressions of
individual persons. The usual aspects of starting and running a small
business (evaluating an idea, planning, financing, accounting,
customers, etc.) are discussed--but from a different perspective. The
emphasis is on knowing how and when to follow the "conventional wisdom"
of business practice versus your own "common sense" and other
innovative, effective, and practical methods.

From the first chapter... "Being in business is not about making
money. It is a way to become who you are."

This book was the "companion volume" to the 17-part PBS television
series. Indexed. ~

A few excerpts...

~ "If you explore the opportunities on cable networks and local
nonaffiliated stations, you'll find that you can buy a minute of TV
advertising for as little a $100. Of course, you won't get nationwide
coverage on Seinfeld, but so what? Test your ads, and soon you'll find
yourself with the right balance of budget, reach, and frequency. ...
Television advertising is perhaps the single best way to persuade
retailers to carry your product."

~ "One local deli placed a stack of circulars in the lobby of our
building. It contained their menu and phone number and advertised in
large letters 'FREE DELIVERY.' We had never heard of the place. Now we
order lunch from them almost daily."

~ "Our Guarantee. Read the Guerrilla Marketing Handbook. Try at least
five of the techniques described herein. If you don't earn back at least

Review for seven years, before serving as a senior editor of Inc.
magazine. He is author of How To Really Start Your Own Business and How

Inc., a marketing and PR firm.

Putting together a business plan has always been one of the most
intimidating tasks facing any business owner. No longer. Now you can
complete each part of your plan as you complete each chapter of this
business guidebook.

This comprehensive step-by-step guide, now in its second revised and
updated edition, takes you through the critical business planning issues
of...

~ Company Strategy: What's Your Identity?
~ Marketing Issues: Who Are The Buyers?
~ Product/Service Issues: What Are You Selling?
~ Sales And Promotion Issues: How Do You Sell?
~ Financial Issues: How Are You Doing?

Gumpert also takes you behind the scenes for an exclusive look at the
actual original business plans of...

~ People Express: The business plan Donald Burr used as
the basis for raising $24 million in investment funds.

~ Pizza Hut: The business plan Frank Carney used to turn his
struggling company around so it could resume its fast growth
and eventually be sold to Pepsico for $300 million.

~ Software Publishing: The business plan that enabled Fred
Gibbons to quickly raise $500,000 of venture capital and
become one of the main players in what may be America's
most competitive industry.

~ Celestial Seasonings: The business plan Mo Siegel wrote
to guide the company's meteoric growth, enabling it to be
sold for $25 million.

~ Ben & Jerry's: The business plan Ben Cohen used to raise
more than $750,000 in a public offering.

Some excerpts...

~ "The end of each chapter contains tasks and suggestions for reader
to follow up on the analysis presented. The purpose is to involve
readers and enable them to see progress in formulating their own
business plans. As this happens, the mystery and intimidation of the
process vanish. ... Writing a business plan is part and parcel of
building a successful business. And, as I hope this book demonstrates,
writing a business plan can be just as exciting as growing a company."
--from the Introduction.

~ "In a global economy, competitive advantages are more important that
ever. You never know where new competitors will come from. Only one
thing is certain: they will continually crop up. Part of your job in the
business plan is to make a case for your company to stay a step ahead of
the competition."

~ "Presumably, you tested your product or service at a few prices and
assessed where you began to encounter resistance and where volume could
expect to go up significantly."

A well-conceived marketing plan can be a detailed stand-alone
document, or it may be a crucial part of your broader business plan.
Either way, it is a key component of business success. With this book
you will learn the practical steps for developing a powerful marketing
plan. For example, you'll learn how to...

~ Target the right market
~ Stay current with the competition
~ Communicate with your market
~ Develop--and execute--your budget
~ Link you marketing plan to your business plan
~ Maximize your marketing efforts

HOW TO REALLY CREATE A SUCCESSFUL MARKETING PLAN also features the
insights and the actual marketing plans from...

~ SMARTFOODS: The finely tuned guerrilla marketing tactics
that Ken Meyers devised to catapult his cheddar cheese popcorn
to the top in the snack-food business.

~ R.W. FROOKIES: Richard Worth's strategic analysis for
positioning cookies as a health food.

~ SYMS: The highly focused advertising program that Marcy and
Sy Syms used to fuel the clothing chains's torrid growth.

~ THE BODY SHOP: The innovative marketing communications system
that Anita Roddick created to keep a chain of cosmetics stores
growing at breakneck speed.

~ MICROFRIDGE: The user-benefit statement that Bob Bennett
developed to unlock and entirely new market.

~ WALL STREET GAMES: The step-by-step market budgeting process
that Tim DeMello used to bring his company's hot investment
contests to market on time and on budget.

~ CAREERTRACK: The unique competitor matrix Jimmy Calano devised
to stay ahead of the pack in the explosive seminar business.

Some excerpts...

~ The marketing essence of a product or service is often something
that in retrospect seems obvious. But pinpointing it requires deep
familiarity with your market as discussed in the previous chapter, and
even deeper thinking about it. Bob Bennett's realization that what
MicroFridge was really selling wasn't an appliance but a way to help
customers increase revenues and profits--for instance, managers of
university dormitories could hold onto students who might otherwise move
out to apartments--was based on his intimate knowledge and study of the
market. It seems simplistic when stated that way but as a mater of
strategy, it is quite sophisticated and has become a driving force in
the company's success."

~ "Unfortunately, the visionaries or creative thinkers of marketing
fame are often unable to cope with the details that make the concepts
succeed. Anita Roddick who is clearly not a detail person, has been very
fortunate to have her husband, Gordon, oversee much of The Body Shop's
marketing implementation."

~ Sample Exercise: "1. Identify two potential partnership
opportunities and candidates that would enable your company to expand
its marketing opportunities."

~ "Having gone through the planning process you gain unique insights,
ideas, and confidence. You know your are dealing with the most important
strategic and implementation issues confronting any company. ... As
noted earlier in this book, marketing is more art than science, and none
of us can ever expect to be perfect. But if your marketing plan enables
you to become a more accomplished artist than you competitors are, then
you will have accomplished a great deal."

What others say...

~ "Excerpts from successful marketing plans make it unique--and
valuable. It will keep many an entrepreneur focused on the marketing
issues that matter most."
--Ruth Wades
Founder and President, Calyx & Corolla, international direct marketer
or fresh flowers

~ "Absorbing and provocative. Most important, it provides the tools,
the schematic, to put a workable plan into action."

worried about it being taken that you shy away form testing it
appropriately and fully. Even the most brilliant ideas will need to be
altered in important ways before they can be turned into successful
businesses. And the only way to determine how is to do the necessary
market testing, which entails a leap of faith about letting others in on
important aspect of the idea."

~ "I hire employees on gut feeling. ... When I go against my feeling
about someone and I hire under a desperate circumstance--if I say to
myself, this is better that nothing--it never turns out right. You have
to be willing to work through a lack of employees in order to get the
right one, because if you don't get the right one, you are just going to
