Understandings on what drives consumers

Cover of  by Richard Shotton

Richard Shotton’s recent book The Choice Factory is arguably the most practical guide to behavioural economics, with an overview of how findings from behavioural science can be applied to marketing communications. Shotton argues that the short-cuts we make in System 1 thinking are prone to bias so we must be aware of them and use them to our advantage.

He has compiled a list of 25 biases, not a comprehensive amount but the ones most relevant to our business.
