Brazilian Brainfluence, Portuguese Persuasion

The long-awaited Portuguese version of Brainfluence has been published in Brazil by Campus/Elsevier. Apparently my invented word Brainfluence™ didn’t translate well, so the book was published under the title, Como Influenciar a Mente do Consumidor (How to Influence the Consumer Mind).

The End of Brainwashing

The End of Brainwashing

Here’s a story within a story, and it begins and ends with my (mostly virtual) friend Brian Solis, author of The End of Business as Usual. Solis began things by posting a photo of my book on Posterous, tagging it as an item on his summer reading list. Solis then linked to that post on [...]

Brainfluence Price Drop and Reviews

Brainfluence Price Drop and Reviews

Good news for ebook readers, at least in the U.S. After spending some time at almost $15, the Kindle version of Brainfluence  has dropped to its introductory price of $9.99. I don’t control this and I get no notice of these changes, so I can’t say how long this lower will last. If you have [...]
