"Written with greater verbal fluency than Henry James, argued with more penetrating insight than William James, this modern, clever, bold, beautiful and occasionally infuriating book will become a classic " (Matt Ridley, author of Nature via Nurture)

""One of the most perceptive and illuminating accounts of marketing and capitalism ever written. Always witty, often surprising, and sometimes shocking, this book is a sheer joy to read."" (Dylan Evans, author of Emotion: The Science of Sentiment)

"'intelligent, engaging, exasperating and funny...if readers embrace his alternatives to retail it could spark a revolution'" (New Scientist)
