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.

Good book good overall ideas. Basically a summary of Robert Cialdini book influence and Charles duhigg the power of habit.
Those are much more detailed books so if you’re looking for a summary of those works this is good for that. Not sure who is reading it but it’s very annoying the way he says Pinterest and Snapchat like he’s never heard those words before. I nearly had to stop it it was annoying me sooo much.

Major Emily Perkins and her team are busy picking up the pieces, and it's not easy, because there is trouble on Paradise....

Twenty-four-year-old entrepreneur Brian Wong graduated from college by age 18, raised $24 million in venture capital to start his own company before he turned 25, and grew that company into a global mobile advertising giant in just four years. His secret? The Cheat Code. Wong believes that most people - even creative people - have a tendency to follow a script, to do things the way others do them simply because that way works. But therein lies the secret at the heart of the Cheat Code: anyone can easily shortcut his or her way to success.

Well written, logical with "really, really" good content!
Ever wondered how 'some' people just seem to get ahead quickly and effortlessly? I'd say this book will shed some light on that...
