This book offers the first introduction to the concepts, theories, and applications of pricing and revenue optimization. From the initial success of "yield management" in the commercial airline industry down to more recent successes of markdown management and dynamic pricing, the application of mathematical analysis to optimize pricing has become increasingly important across many different industries. But, since pricing and revenue optimization has involved the use of sophisticated mathematical techniques, the topic has remained largely inaccessible to students and the typical manager. With methods proven in the MBA courses taught by the author at Columbia and Stanford Business Schools, this book presents the basic concepts of pricing and revenue optimization in a form accessible to MBA students, MS students, and advanced undergraduates. In addition, managers will find the practical approach to the issue of pricing and revenue optimization invaluable.
With updates to every chapter, this second edition covers topics such as estimation of price-response functions and machine-learning-based price optimization. New discussions of applications of dynamic pricing and revenue management by companies such as Amazon, Uber, and Disney, and in industries such as sports, theater, and electric power, are also included. In addition, the book provides current coverage of important applications such as revenue management, markdown management, customized pricing, and the behavioral economics of pricing.
"Benefiting from Bob's rich industry experience and superb writing skills, this book exposes the reader to a host of real-world applications that blend modelling, optimization, and machine learning in a gentle and accessible way. Describing new developments in e-commerce, ride sharing and reinforced learning, this is a must-read book for students and professionals in the field." -- Guillermo Gallego, Crown Worldwide Professor of Engineering ― Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
"Bob Phillips is one of the world's experts on quantitative pricing. This unique book translates state-of-the-art academic research into practical managerial lessons. Covering a wide range of industries that go from revenue management classics such as hotels and airlines all the way to modern e-commerce and ride-sharing platforms, this book is a must have for every pricing manager." -- Gabriel Weintraub ― Stanford Graduate School of Business --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the author

This book is the revamped version of its first edition, and a huge leap ahead of the already good and pertinent edition 1. Highly recommended to serious readers who want to understand all the nuts and bolts of pricing and revenue optimization.
Ironically (and thankfully) this book is priced too low for all the value it brings.
