Product description


Fascinating stuff. (Steve Wright, BBC Radio 2)

Thought-provoking stuff. (The Scotsman)

Graves does more than just show marketers the error of their ways. He shows them a path to better insight. (Director Magazine)

A fascinating romp through the psychological underpinnings of consumer behaviour: risk aversion, safety in numbers, scarcity value and priming. It's well written, accessible and entertaining, yet thought provoking. (Alan Giles, Fellow of The Marketing Society and Associate Fellow, Said Business School, University of Oxford)

A good read. (Library Journal)

Consumerology is a publishing phenomenon. (Cambridge Business Magazine)

Consumer.ology is a refreshingly iconoclastic skewer through the heart of traditional market research methods and reason. Graves' peppering of psychological theory with pithy anecdotes of misguided consumer successes and failures is bound to at once ruffle feathers and get heads nodding within marketing and innovation circles. (Blake H. Glenn, Senior Inventor, ?What If!)

This is an eye-opening, thoroughly researched and tightly argued book. It will alarm some, enrage others and state the obvious for many. (Danny Flamberg Manhatten Marketing Maven)

There are lots of great anecdotes and examples in this excellent book. (Faris Yakob Talent imitates, genius steals' blog)

This is a fascinating book which might change your view about market research forever! The book offers series of factors, which if considered carefully, can actually improve the accuracy of research: though you'll never look at research in quite the same way! This book is a real eye opener and I would recommend it for any manager at any stage in their career. (Chartered Management Institute)

Book Description

This new updated and revised second edition of Consumerology reveals the myriad tricks and psychological games high street shops play on consumers; the ways in which we are manipulated into buying things we don't want and the cutting edge behavioural science being used to change our habits to even more significant degrees.
