Writing in their trademark witty, fast-paced style, Ries and Trout explain how to position an industry leader so that it gets into people's minds and stays there, how to position a follower so that it can occupy a space not claimed by the leader, and how to avoid letting a second product ride on the coattails of an established one. https://www.mheducation.co.in/9780070533752-india-positioning-the-battle-for-your-mind-20th-anniversary-edition
