'What is racing if not an extreme form of luxury?  Very few people in the world can indulge in such an activity. Racing is  to the automotive world the equivalent of the ultimate luxury item: for a few select, privileged individuals indulging themselves. The extreme  technology, the vivid images, the speed and loud sounds all contribute  to make racing the ultimate automotive experience, and after all aren't  ultimate experiences what luxury is all about? I invite you to take the  extraordinary race in luxury management provided by Luxury Strategy in Action.' – Amato Ferrari, owner of AF Corse – four times FIA GT world champion with Ferrari
'Too often considered as the last link of the chain, the distribution channel remains the success key for luxury products. You can have the  best products, the best communication, but if you don't have the right  channel to the consumer, the rest is useless. Moreover distribution is  no longer just a window but also a communication leverage for the brand  image and environment. Luxury Strategy in Action is a must read from this perspective.' – Manuel Mallen, CEO, Baume & Mercier, France
