User Review  - Amna Ali - Goodreads

Not satisfying... The first couple of chapters are good but it then just kind of drags. Read full review

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

User Review  - Lori Tatar - Goodreads

Interesting stuff here, what should be obvious but sometimes isn't. Unfortunately, it read an awful lot like an infomercial as the author touted his company's services throughout. Read full review

Review: Why We Buy: The Science of Shopping

User Review  - Waqar Hassan - Goodreads

Author presents some new ideas that are common sense but rarely applied. Repetition of the same ideas is very annoying, it feels like he wrote this book for a five year old. I was not able to finish this book. 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

Review: Why We Buy: The Science of Shopping

User Review  - Huiling - Goodreads

Despite the overwhelmingly good review on Amazon, I found this book hugely disappointing. The book should be more appropriately named "the nitty-gritty tricks" of shopping.

User Review  - Mindy - Goodreads

This book wasn't really what I was hoping for. I actually didn't finish it before it was due back to the library, but I don't think I'll check it out again. It did interest me somewhat, though, just not enough to read the book in its entirety. Read full review

User Review  - Cindy - Goodreads

Ok, so having now read both this book and "The Call of the Mall," I can understand why those who read this one first rated the other poorly. They're practically the same book. I don't think there was ... Read full review

Ehh...it was ok. Seeing as how i'm going into retail this should have been enthralling. But it wasn't as eye-opening as I expected. Read full review
