Why do some products capture widespread attention while others flop? What makes us engage with certain products out of sheer habit? Is there a pattern underlying how technologies hook us?
Nir Eyal answers these questions (and many more) by explaining the Hook Model—a four-step process embedded into the products of many successful companies to subtly encourage customer behavior. Through consecutive “hook cycles,” these products reach their ultimate goal of bringing users back again and again without depending on costly advertising or aggressive messaging.
Hooked is based on Eyal’s years of research, consulting, and practical experience. He wrote the book he wished had been available to him as a start-up founder—not abstract theory, but a how-to guide for building better products. Hooked is written for product managers, designers, marketers, start-up founders, and anyone who seeks to understand how products influence our behavior.
Hi friends, I'm Alex, a very atypical IT guy. In addition to programming, I also like to learn different languages and cultures, read English books, travel in different places, play social latin dances(salsa) and improvisation. Due to the open and positive mindset, I created an English speaking social group in June 2011, which is called "Post English Time". My goal is to make it a reliable, valuable and interesting English community focusing on life experience sharing and personal growth. I have worked in different IT/Internet companies for many years, now I'm working on my own project - PET. I hope to be friends and have fun conversations with you.
