Listen Up! Get a FREE Brainfluence Audio Book

I love audio books. They make being stuck in traffic bearable. Lengthy road trips pass more quickly, not to mention workouts at the gym. So, I was delighted last week when Wiley let me know that the audio rights for Brainfluence had been sold. I was careful not to get TOO excited, as Portuguese and Spanish rights for the book have been sold but, as far as I know, the actual books haven’t appeared. So, I was REALLY surprised when a few hours after learning of the rights sale a reader told me he had just downloaded the audiobook version of Brainfluence! […]

Landing Page Optimization by Tim Ash

Book Review: Landing Page Optimization: The Definitive Guide to Testing and Tuning for Conversions by Tim Ash , Maura Ginty, and Rich Page. The first edition of Tim Ash's Landing Page Optimization has been called the Conversion Bible (by me, at least). Unlike the religious tome, though, this resource is far from static. The newest edition has been improved, expanded, and even sports a couple of new co-authors. As before, Ash delves into the psychology and neuroscience of conversion, along with lots of practical advice.

People toss around the terms "thought leader" and "social media expert" lightly these days, but Brian Solis is one of the few people who actually lives up to those names. In The End of Business as Usual, Solis shows how the widespread use of social media is fundamentally changing the business environment.

Business, Sport, & Mark Cuban

Thinking, Fast and Slow

Book Review: Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

Scientists love to divide human thinking into two parts: right brain vs. left brain, rational vs. emotional, conscious vs. subconscious, and no doubt many others. Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize winner in Economics, proposes a simple split to explain much of human behavior: fast vs. slow. He makes it clear that this is an artificial construct, but at the same time draws upon decades of research to demonstrate its utility. […]

Nobelist Kahneman: Emotion, Cognition Merge

At the excellent Freakonomics blog, they have been publishing an extended Q&A series of posts. Their latest guest is Daniel Kahneman, co-recipient the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics [re-corrected, see discussion in comments], whose new book is Thinking, Fast and Slow. One that I found particularly relevant to neuromarketing was a question about the future of cognitive science: […]

Neuromarketing by Leon Zurawicki

Book Review: Neuromarketing: Exploring the Brain of the Consumer by Leon Zurawicki

I’m constantly asked the question, “where can I study neuromarketing?” by those looking for an undergraduate or graduate degree that will enable them to find a neuromarketing job after graduation. It’s fair to say that academia hasn’t fully embraced neuromarketing as a field of study, but when that happens Leon Zurawicki’s Neuromarketing: Exploring the Brain of the Consumer will likely be the textbook. Zurawicki’s book explores the field in a thoughtful, well-researched, and well-documented manner. […]
