Faith Popcorn will always be relevant! She effectively speaks about an approach to forecasting using broad stokes so that everybody gets it. Her words are good for the most experienced marketer to the everyday consumer who just wants to get a hand up!
I read this book in graduate school over 20 years ago! It's still works!
