'This book makes a very useful addition to the rather scarce literature on the subject. What I always look for, and what I'm particularly gratified to find in this book, is a prominent acknowledgement of the 'deeds not words' school of thought which I devote most of my energies to communicating.' - Simon Anholt, Government Advisor; Author of the Anholt Nation Brands Index and Competitive Identity (Palgrave); Member of the UK Foreign Office's Public Diplomacy Board
'Robert Govers and Frank Go's new book brings a new level of intellectual rigour to the often misunderstood subject of place branding.' - Nicholas Ind, Managing Partner of Equilibrium Consulting; Author of Living the Brand (Kogan Page) and Branding Governance (Wiley)
'This book is a valuable addition to current thinking on the subject of place branding. It offers fresh insights and perspectives. I thoroughly recommend it for practioners and students of place marketing' Roger Pride, Marketing Director of Visit Wales and co-author of Destination Branding, Creating the Unique Destination Proposition (Elsevier)
'I truly appreciate this book's attempt to approach the practice of place branding from an (applied-) academic perspective.' - Sicco van Gelder, Founder of Placebrands and author of Global Brand Strategy-Unlocking Branding Potential Across Countries, Cultures and Markets (Kogan Page).
'The reader will likely find the book to be an intellectually stimulating experience; as noted previously, the depth of research and efforts to validate the claims put forward by the authors make the book enlightening and fascinating.' Elsa Wilkin-Armbrister, Annals of Tourism Research
