Answers to Contemporary Market Research Questions provides new entrants to market research with a first point of reference in a fast changing industry. In market research, there are some key concepts, ideas, and pieces of knowledge that even the newest researcher (or a researcher new to a topic) should have at their fingertips.

The Answers to Contemporary Market Research Questions aims to present those key items as a set of questions and answers. While its not a manual of how to conduct research, it does provide nuggets of information that will enable new (and sometimes older) researchers to orientate themselves, and avoid walking into too many of the traps that the changing world of market research can create.
