An entirely interesting and readable book on behaviouristic developments.
Though I had some issues with how the author perceives Russia. It's like he went to a country entirely different from the one I reside in.
Take this extract:
Russia’s biggest downside, for me at least, is its lack of color....

I had a hard time with this book because it relies mostly on the authors observations, and I disagreed with nearly of all his observations about America. For example, he states that "In the United States, almost no public rooms are rectangular or sharply cornered". I would argue that nearly all p...

Mr. Lindstrom has a terribly interesting job, and this account of the things he's seen and learned is an intriguing and easy read. He travels the world as a branding consultant, studying the cultures companies wish to advertise in and then offering the companies advice on how to get people to buy...

The book is simply terrific. It talks about the significance of "Small Data", which is getting "data" directly through observation, chatting with people and viewing things at its "nature-mode". It minimizes the room of manipulation and unmatching pieces of information that "Big Data" may encounte...

Utterly, positively, fascinating! As a student of human behavior with a big interest in marketing (and the interaction between the two), I devoured this book from Page 1 right through to the end. And boy, did I ever learn a lot.
The author, who has written several other books on this and similar t...

Има една култова фраза от сериала по “Песен за огън и лед” – Тирион самодоволно заявява “That’s what I do. I drink, and I know things” (“Това правя. Пия и знам неща”). Просто си представих Мартин Линдстрьом, койт...

An interesting study of behaviouralism within the field of marketing. The author identifies techniques in understanding underlying trends in marketing data. I am interested in reading about human behaviour from a psychological perspective so found this an engaging read. Thanks to Hodder and Stoug...

Не че е някаква новина, но всеки път се шокирам като видя написано черно на бяло как търговците, понякога съвсем елементарно, манипулират хората. Най-съкровените ни човешки желания и стремежи - към общуване, признание, принадлежност, страхът ни от отхвърляне се използват с цел да ни продават неща...

"Невероятните приключения на един маркетинг детектив по света" би било по-удачното заглавие на тази книга. Зад шарената Лего корица се крие един много любопитен свят на изграждане на разнообразни марки през призмата на народопсихологията.
Книгата не дава готови рецепти за успех, а чрез разкази от...

Some interesting field trips and interesting observations, but ultimately I aborted about 1/3 through for numerous reasons:
1. Very self-aggrandizing presentation of his work, despite giving no supporting evidence for the validity of the technique
2. He took small observations and over-interpreted...
