Review Quotes

“If you want to understand what's really wrong with our present system of Capitalism running amok, you'll have to read Kotler's book.” --Huntington News

“Critics of capitalism are not in short supply.. But when the critic is Philip Kotler, capitalism needs to sit up and take notice." --Financial Times

“…excellent book because it sends this very clear message to workers, bankers, industrialists, CEOs, politicians and presidents.” --BlogCritics

“…[Kotler’s] writing on behalf of all business; large corporations as well as one-person firms, mom-and-pop shops, small businesses and everyone in between.” —Small Business Trends

“Brings a fresh perspective on what capitalism is and how different variations of it are in existence in the world today…tackles multiple issues with conciseness” –-Book Barrage

“Confronting Capitalism does something I have not seen before. It takes economics and puts it on a practical human scale." --Evil Cyclist

“Those who have even the remotest connection to the levers of power should be locked in a room and forced to digest Kotler’s analysis and act upon it.” --Darren Ingram Media
