Consumer Behavior: Buying, Having, and Being covers what happens before, during and after the point of purchase. It investigates how having or not having certain products affects our lives, especially in the canon of social media and the digital age. In the 13th Edition, up-to-date content reflects major marketing trends and changes that impact this field of study. Since we are all consumers, many of the topics have both professional and personal relevance. This makes it easy to apply the theory outside of class and maintain an edge in the fluid and evolving field of consumer behavior.
