A newly revised and updated edition of the influential guide that explores one of the most powerful ways to attract attention and influence behavior - fascination - and how businesses, products, and ideas can become irresistible to consumers.
In an oversaturated culture defined by limited time and focus, how do we draw attention to our messages, our ideas, and our products when we have only seconds to compete?
Award-winning consultant and speaker Sally Hogshead turned to a wide realm of disciplines, including neurobiology, psychology, and evolutionary anthropology. She began to see specific and interesting patterns that all centered on one element: fascination.
Fascination is the most powerful way to capture an audience and influence behavior. This essential book examines the principles behind fascination and explores how those insights can be put to use to sway:
Structured around the seven languages of fascination Hogshead has studied and developed - power, passion, innovation, alarm, mystique, prestige, and alert - Fascinate explores how anyone can use these triggers to make products, messages, and services more fascinating - and more successful.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

This book helped me understand branding for my small business so much more and in a different way than I've ever heard it approached! The best part of the book I thought was the second half when she gave practical ways to use you "brand advantage". You MUST take the branding test (for free) online, it's so worth it!! Thanks Sally :)
While this book has tons of great insights, my only question is: how does one go about getting the codes to access the pdf files? Having access to the various charts would be so helpful so why isn't this included in the description? I hate that audible books don't come with the perks of their corresponding cd version even though those documents are easily available to us online.
Really happy with it
There is currently concrete examples and it is well structured
.....actually opposite... not having the boom prevent me from accessing the PDF
the book was very good. did a very good job on explaining how to create a really good brand. I would recommend this book to friends...
Be yourself to the maximum.
This book is so good, I'm buying the print version, too. Great job. Fun ride.
I'm a professional artist who binge listens to audio books all day long as I paint. I have only found one author/ reader that works--Malcolm Gladwell. Unless you're him, I'd recommend splurging on a real professional reader. They can make or break a book. I found "Fascinate" chock full of great ideas to help me with my art career...but the author's voice put me on edge. She even giggles throughout her reading at a joke that she herself wrote! It felt more like I was sitting through a lecture at a marketing conference! I do recommend getting this book, but perhaps order it in a hardback?
"Can't hear her laughing about her own jokes..."
No doubt an interesting and important text. But can't stand her chuckling about her own (not always intelligent) jokes. There is sth for professional actors reading texts...
came to this book after I heard the author on a well known podcast and was intrigued by her message and approach to the subject of what fascinates -- the book did not disappoint - there is so much useful material in both the book and the accompanying PDFs.
"A listening easy to transform into action"
Excellent content. It opens your mind, makes you think about your brand and how you are selling it through the markets. It made merevise past errors and gave me a better understanding about why some brands captivate us.
The pdf material is very important but don't read till you understand correctly how to use it.
It has helped me a lot on the first listening but As I kept on going deeper into the book I decided to buy the book so I could revise some specific parts.
Great book whatever your profession is, you can use it for your brand, your personal brand or even for sales presentations in order to have a better result.
