5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Book, 18 July 2005
This review is from: Persuasive Technology: Using Computers to Change What We Think and Do (Interactive Technologies) (Paperback)
This was a great book. Fogg starts by defining Captology (Computers As Persuasive Technologies) and goes on to explain in depth how computers can be used to manipulate and influence our attitudes and behaviour. Whilst at first this may seem an unlikely claim, the more you think about it, the more you realise that he is correct.
The book is crammed with great examples clearly illustrating the potential for computers to be used as persuaders. Fogg also addresses the ethical implications of computers acting as persuaders and highlights some of the potential dangers that may lie ahead.
The layout and structure of the book, coupled with the number of diagrams and photos used, makes this an accessible and easy book to read that will make you a more informed and aware user. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Persuasive Technology: Using Computers to Change What We Think and Do (Interactive Technologies) (Paperback)
It is a must read for people in studying ubiquitous technology.
It explains really well what persuasive technology is about and shows different ways on one can do it.
The book is very easy to ready and it has a lot of good examples of what was done in the area already.
