From the Back Cover:

"Jesper Kunde is a name you can expect to see on the global business advisors' marquee for a long time to come. This book is not for the faint of heart. It is not for you unless you are ready to shed decades of marketing "wisdom" and painstakingly build—in the spirit of a Nike, a Virgin, a Nokia—your essential value proposition. It is not for you unless you are prepared to organize your entire company into a focused system that supports and exudes the essence of who you are and why what you offer to the world matters. Let Kunde get into your mind, and you may just end up getting into your customer's mind! A bavura performance from the undisputed Maestro of value positioning."

—Tom Peters, Palo Alto

Our parents valued products. Tangible, measurable, reassuringly solid things. Today, products are almost indistinguishable. Our generation of consumers focuses on attitude, emotional content and immaterial value. If you want to sell me a power drill, don't tell me how many watts the engine is; tell me how good I'll feel when a set of shelves I've put up stays up. This is the New Value Economy.

Value differentiation is a crucial factor for success and the question on everybody's mind is simple: How do I stand out in the turmoil? What does it take to be unique? First you have to change your mindset. Always front a company with the brand—never ever the product.

Understanding the power of a unique brand gives value-driven companies an advantage in the market. Unique, Now or Never sets out four new tools for companies in the New Value Economy to achieve that advantage.
