About the Author:

Barry Leventhal has written widely on geodemographics and data mining.  He is a past winner of the MRS (Market Research Society) award for Innovation in Research Methodology, the MRS Silver Medal, and an Emerald Citation of Excellence.  Currently, he leads his own consulting company, BarryAnalytics and delivers training courses.

Review:

"An exciting journey in geodemographics, Geodemographics for Marketers takes the expert, and inexpert, reader on a ride from the origin of this complex discipline to its latest achievements; from the dawn of the third industrial revolution, to the spreading of the Big Data era; from the underlying theory, to relevant and interesting market applications.

This book, including contributions from eminent exponents of the discipline, represents an unmatchable source of inspiration for everyone interested in this limitless, growing field. It is a necessary handbook of the methodologies, approaches, classifications, tools, research design, applications, potentialities and limits of a powerful scientific instrument.

With this book, Barry Leventhal has achieved an empirically rich and academically challenging series of contributions, flavouring it with his unique experience, knowledge and market understanding."
(Claudio Calvino, PhD, Senior Applications Consultant, Open Source Data Scientist Capgemini UK plc, and Research Assoc, Oxford Internet Institute, Univ. of Oxford)

"Geodemographics for Marketers, authored by Barry Leventhal and a star list of geodemographic analysts, is a must-read for students and practitioners in the field. The book provides guidance on standard and new methods, insights into “Big Data” and information on a range of commercial applications, unlocked for a wider audience by Barry’s networking skills. This book is a masterpiece of co-production between commercial practitioners and academics. We can all be grateful that Mrs Leventhal asked her husband in spring 2014, 'Why don't you write a book?'"
(Philip Rees CBE FBA AcSS FRGS, Professor Emeritus, School of Geography University of Leeds)

"Barry and his fellow contributors have provided a clear and very readable account of the vital role of geodemographics in marketing, demonstrating what they can achieve for the marketer, and the many ways in which geodemographic classifications can be applied. Although geodemographics have been around for well over 30 years, Barry shows that they are still extremely relevant today. Geodemographics were first applied to Kantar Media’s TGI (Target Group Index) database, which I work on as a statistician today, and they remain a key tool for our clients. Marketers who read this book will be left in no doubt as to their vital contribution to successful marketing campaigns."
(Martin van Staveren, TGI Technical Director Kantar Media)

"Like Harry Beck’s iconic tube map, this essential guide transforms a complicated mix of geography and statistics into an unmistakeable, coherent and actionable reference for all marketing professionals. Written to educate and inspire, this is an easy-to-follow journey through theory and practice, supported by relevant and successful case studies. Readers will put this book down with a profound understanding and the confidence that they can successfully adopt geodemographics within their business."
(Gordon Farquharson, Director of Analytics more2 Ltd)

"Geodemographics remains an essential tool for many businesses, and others are still discovering it; both need to get impartial advice. Dr Leventhal is a leading expert in this field, and it is great to see this definitive and up-to-date volume being published."
(Keith Dugmore, Director Demographic Decisions Ltd)

"Barry has succeeded brilliantly in making geodemographics approachable and easy to understand; without leaving out anything of significance. He has covered the subject very thoroughly, and has involved some key “players” in that coverage. I believe this will instantly become the standard text for marketers interested in geodemographics.

Barry’s enthusiasm for, and deep knowledge of, geodemographics shines through. He knows his subject inside out, as well he might. He joined PinPoint Analysis in the eighties, having used geodemographics in his previous job at AGB. Since then he has been at the forefront of developments over the decades, having also started the MRS Census and Geodemographics Group in the early nineties, giving him (and the members of the group) an inside track on developments."
(Peter Sleight (practitioner since 1982 -- now retired))

"This book is a comprehensive account of the development, use and future of geodemographics. In addition, it covers many related areas and initiatives, providing an extremely helpful context. The references and sources are well documented, giving access to the details that can be so difficult to find but are often critical in actually using geodemographics and fully understanding the results of having done so. Barry has to be congratulated on putting together this excellent book and having persuaded so many other leading experts to contribute. It is written with great clarity, and answers the questions that would be raised in a reader’s mind just before they occur." (Martin Callingham, former Group Market Research Director Whitbread PLC)

"This is a very timely book. The use of geodemographics is growing rapidly, particularly in its application in the analysis of big data sets. Under Barry’s leadership, the book brings together the leading geodemographic minds in the UK to provide a clear and concise guide of how to get the best out of geodemographics."
(Lynne Robinson, Research Director IPA)

"Geodemographics for Marketers is that rare book on the office shelf – engaging, comprehensive, relevant and eminently practical. If you’re interested in the why, how and “so what” of geodemographics, look no further. The answers are here."
(Emma White, Doctor of Mathematics, ADRC-E University of Southampton)

"Geodemographics for Marketers is a comprehensive introduction to the what, why, when and how of geodemographics – an essential discriminator for determining a whole range of decisions, from store locations to council planning. It is a must for serious marketers and planners and will become the standard work on this subject."
(Roger Holland, Executive Chairman JICPOPS (the Joint Industry Committee for Population Standards))
