"Most companies know little about Islamic culture, buying behavior and marketing. Paul Temporal has done a superb job of opening up Western and Asian eyes to Islamic opportunities as well as helping Islamic businesses improve their brand positioning."
—Philip Kotler, S. C. Johnson Distinguished Professor of International Marketing, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University
"The Islamic population of the world has been neglected by marketers in a totally unwarranted way for far too long. Paul Temporal knows the subject and knows the consumers. This masterful book fills a huge gap in the understanding of this 'last frontier' of marketing."
—Miles Young, Chief Executive Officer, Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide
"Islamic Branding and Marketing is a courageous and well-documented attempt at unearthing the vast opportunities in the Muslim world that remain largely unrealized. The uniformity, coming as it does within a vast geographical and ethnic diversity, is quite unique. The Ummah—as Muslims refer to it—naturally pulled together not only by faith but by a whole set of ethical and behavioral conduct that touches every aspect of daily life. This book helps marketers to plan ahead on how to manage this "diverse homogeneity" that distinguish the Ummah and do so on a kind of scale that represents 25 percent of the world population."
—Roy M. Haddad, Chairman and CEO, JWT MEA Group
"Islamic Branding and Marketing is a very interesting essay showing the diversity of the Muslim markets while taking seriously into account their common Islamic principles and values. This book is useful for both Muslims and non-Muslims and makes it clear that markets and ethics can be reconciled through creativity and innovative dynamism."
—Professor Tariq Ramadan, HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Oriental Studies and Research Fellow of St Antony's College, University of Oxford
