The first couple chapters were fairly interesting. However, the rest seemed like regurgitated, general, obvious, useless information. Very simple concepts drawn out far beyond necessary. Alot of filler, waste of time.
Narrator: the voice and style was very far from the generic one I've found in titles similar to this. Much more engaging.
My background going into the book:
I've read "Thinking, fast and slow", but no books on marketing or virality.
I love that the book starts out by introducing a simple acronym, and devotes a chapter to explaining each concept in detail.
Filled with good examples and good at reusing earlier concepts and phrases.
Of the 6 concepts, the last 2 were a little light on theory and mostly explained with examples.
A very good and memorable introduction to virality.

The author’s advice on marketing makes sense, but I found his audiobook a stressful listen, as his endless stories, spelled out in a host petty details really distracted from the message. It would have benefited from a much tighter re-write.
I needed a clear guide on how to further develop a branding message for my company. This book helped me more than any singular book to help craft a message that will resonate. I hiiiiiighly recommend it for marketers or designers looking to create more focused brands to earn more money!
Jonah Berger is the brilliant professor who put out a brilliant book one of the greatest I have ever read
This book was ACTUALLY interesting, useful and applicable, not "salesie" or sleazy like most books about marketing. The narration is slow af so listen at 1.25x the speed!!!
