Lindstrom presents the findings from his three-year, seven-million-dollar neuromarketing study, an experiment that peered inside the brains of 2,000 volunteers from around the world as they encountered various ads, logos, commercials, brands, and products. His results alter much of what we have long believed about what seduces our interest and drives us to buy. Filled with inside stories about how we respond to well-known brands.

This isn't a bad book, necessarily, although I agree with Publishers Weekly's viewpoint on the author, but not necessarily new studies. Back around 1990, or 1991, I read a chilling article in "American Demographics" magazine where they quantified American consumers to 37 detailed, yet general groups, and narrowed it down further to more detailed (74 groups) and even more detailed (148 groups, according to economic ability to consumer in contracting or expanding their purchase types). I fully expected not to find myself in any of the groups, yet indeed I fell into one of those 37 groups. With advances in the MRI, now utilizing the fMRI, the advert firms can truly quantify to a chillingly amazing degree, and that knowledge is fully availabe to the government, the intel agencies, and so forth.

Entertaining studies and concepts, albeit ones that are not particularly new.

One of the most interesting Marketing books I read
(And the only "Neuromarketing" book). Highly recommend.
