Descripción del producto
"Jonah Berger is as creative and thoughtful as he is spunky and playful. Looking at his research, much like studying a masterpiece in a museum, provides the observer with new insights about life and also makes one aware of the creator's ingenuity and creativity. It is hard to come up with a better example of using social science to illuminate the ordinary and extraordinary in our daily lives."--Dan Ariely, James B. Duke professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University and bestselling author of Predictably Irrational
"Jonah Berger is the rare sort who has studied the facts, parsed it from the fiction--and performed groundbreaking experiments that have changed the way the experts think. If there's one book you're going to read this year on how ideas spread, it's this one."--Dave Balter, CEO of BzzAgent and Co-founder of the Word of Mouth Marketing Association
"The book is just plain interesting. Berger's cases are not only topical and relevant, but his principles seem practical and are easily understood. . . . I have a strong feeling that this book will catch on."--Ben Frederick "The Christian Science Monitor "
"Jonah Berger knows more about what makes information 'go viral' than anyone in the world."--Daniel Gilbert, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University and author of Stumbling on Happiness
"Why do some ideas seemingly spread overnight, while others disappear? How can some products become ubiquitous, while others never gain traction? Jonah Berger knows the answers, and, with Contagious, now we do, too."--Charles Duhigg, author of the bestselling The Power of Habit
"If you are seeking a bigger impact, especially with a smaller budget, you need this book. Contagious will show you how to make your product spread like crazy."--Chip Heath, co-author of Made to Stick and Decisive
"Contagious contains arresting -- and counterintuitive -- facts and insights. . . . Most interesting of all are the examples Berger cites of successful and unsuccessful marketing campaigns."--Glenn C. Altschuler "The Boston Globe "
"Think of it as the practical companion to Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point."--Tasha Eichenseher "Discover "
Reseña del editor
New York Times bestseller and named Best Marketing Book of 2014 by the American Marketing Association
What makes things popular? Why do people talk about certain products and ideas more than others? Why are some stories and rumors more infectious? And what makes online content go viral?
If you said advertising, think again. People don’t listen to advertisements, they listen to their peers. But why do people talk about certain products and ideas more than others? Why are some stories and rumors more infectious? And what makes online content go viral?
Wharton marketing professor Jonah Berger has spent the last decade answering these questions. He’s studied why New York Times articles make the paper’s own Most E-mailed List, why products get word of mouth, and how social influence shapes everything from the cars we buy to the clothes we wear to the names we give our children. In this book, Berger reveals the secret science behind word-of-mouth and social transmission. Discover how six basic principles drive all sorts of things to become contagious, from consumer products and policy initiatives to workplace rumors and YouTube videos.
Contagious combines groundbreaking research with powerful stories. Learn how a luxury steakhouse found popularity through the lowly cheese-steak, why anti-drug commercials might have actually increased drug use, and why more than 200 million consumers shared a video about one of the seemingly most boring products there is: a blender. If you’ve wondered why certain stories get shared, e-mails get forwarded, or videos go viral, Contagious explains why, and shows how to leverage these concepts to craft contagious content. This book provides a set of specific, actionable techniques for helping information spread—for designing messages, advertisements, and information that people will share. Whether you’re a manager at a big company, a small business owner trying to boost awareness, a politician running for office, or a health official trying to get the word out, Contagious will show you how to make your product or idea catch on.

These kind of books, where the author presents anecdotal evidence and real life stories to illustrate points, are fun to read for me as I enjoy when the author helps you relate with the "stories" presented to validate a point.
Jonah writes to inform us of why things catch on. We see this quite a bit with things going "viral" with social media, but he goes deeper than just the social media aspect of contagiousness.
He provides an easy to follow acronym for outlining what items can help something catch on. This acronym is STEPPS and the books is divided into 6 chapters describing each of the elements. They are as follows:
Social Currency - Being "in-the-know" on something and wanting to share it with others.
Triggers - How one thing will instantly trigger a thought of something else. Peanut butter makes you think of jelly. Coffee and donuts go together, etc.
Emotion - When something inspires us and evokes emotion, we are often inspired to share. Some feelings are more prone to sharing like humor, awe, excitement, and on the negative side, anger and anxiety.
Public - Summed up as social proof. Two restaurants with same cuisine and one has a line out the door and the other one is practically empty. Where would you like dine?
Practical Value - Information that is useful is far more likely to be shared.
Stories - When a good story is told, it will often suck us in, evoke emotion, and prompt us to want to share.
Amazon reviewers give this one a 4.5 after 676 reviews. Goodreads gives it a 3.87 after 11,603 ratings and 1,090 reviews. I thought the book was entertaining but didn't really feel like there was anything revolutionary about the content. Still, if you enjoy psychology and social behaviors along the same lines as Malcolm Gladwell, then you might want to pick it up.
Interestingly, Berger's academic work cites Rogers' work. In addition, a podcast interview with Berger posted on influencerinc.co notes that one of Berger's "favorite five" is the book "Diffusion of Innovations." In another interview posted on thereadinglists.com, Berger states that "'Diffusion of Innovations' was one of the first books to examine the question of why some products succeed while others fail. The author looked at everything from hybrid corn to new computer technologies." The syllabus for the course taught by Berger for The Great Courses (How Ideas Spread) includes suggested readings; none other than Everett Rogers and his <i>Diffusion of Innovations</i> appears on the list.
I earned a PhD in marketing from the University of Washington and my dissertation focused on innovation adoption and diffusion. Before entering academia, I briefly worked as a consultant. I was fortunate enough to have worked along with Rogers on one of my consulting projects with a major packaged foods company. There are simply so many things stated in Berger's book that mirror concepts that Rogers wrote about and talked about in his own work. While "Contagious" is obviously a well written book, anyone interested in the topics Berger presents must read "Diffusion of Innovations," which is far more comprehensive (and interesting) than Berger's work. "Contagious," I believe, is nothing more than a "dumbed-down" version of Rogers' work presented in a way to sell to the masses. Other than the concept of persistence, nearly everything covered by Berger was written by Rogers in 1962.
