Why do some products capture our attention, while others flop? What makes us engage with certain products out of habit? Is there a pattern underlying how technologies hook us? This audiobook introduces listeners to the "Hook Model," a four steps process companies use to build customer habits. Through consecutive hook cycles, successful products reach their ultimate goal of bringing users back repeatedly - without depending on costly advertising or aggressive messaging. Hooked is a guide to building products people can't put down.

What did you like best about Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products? What did you like least?

The reading. It was like someone fed the text to a text-to-speech programme. It made it impossible to actually listen to the content.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Dave Wright?

Practically anyone else.

Any additional comments?

I have to get it in printed/digital format so I can actually get what the book is about.

  • The Power of Vulnerability

On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

It is an amazingly good talk about vulnerability, creativity, fun, shame and a ton of related things.
Highlights most of the core problems present in any organisation, failing projects, families and how to solve them.

And she is funny - all the stories, the presentations are funny, informative and very helpful.
