Review: Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping

User Review  - Tripleguess - Goodreads

This was an interesting book for the first couple chapters. I was fascinated by the premise: stores nowadays function as their own advertisement and can affect whether and how much shoppers buy ... Read full review

Review: Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping

User Review  - Eric Derie - Goodreads

I can imagine that the book has interesting insights for people that have no clue what shoppers are about. It was maybe eyeopening 20 year's ago. For today's reades its an overstretched sales leaflet ... Read full review

Review: Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping

User Review  - Lukas Vermeer - Goodreads

After reading this, I still have no idea why I bought it, or why the word "science" appears on the cover. Perhaps a better title would've been: "How To Design Your Store: Random Anecdotes And ... Read full review

User Review  - Cindy - Goodreads

A few good tips to help a "seller" position their goods for better sales. A long way to get there though (291 pages). Read full review

User Review  - Annah - Goodreads

Nothing much here but a few interesting points about retail sociology. At times pompous, at times whiny, and sexist throughout, it was mostly a bound ad for the author's company. Read full review

Review: Why We Buy: The Science of Shopping--Updated and Revised for the Internet, the Global Consumer, and Beyond

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

The first part of the book was pretty fascinating--I learned a lot about signs and what people pay attention to in stores. A lot of it could have applications in libraries, too. I skimmed sections ... Read full review

Review: Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping

User Review  - Alberto Pellizzato - Goodreads

The book contains some interesting nuggets of information that are rare to come by, it's fascinating to have definite quantities on human behaviour. Unfortunately such nuggets are rather sparse, and ... Read full review
