A real insight into the world of communication and how technology is taking the relationship between the brand and consumer into a whole new area. For the first time a relationship of equals. For those in the profession this book is a bible. For those just interested in the subject its just fascinating. HumanKind

It's refreshing to see a big network agency making the case for marketing to have a nobler role in the world (even though not all self-promoting examples in the book are living up to it).

As the authors Tom Bernardin and Mark Tutssel point out, the idea that brands need a purpose is not a new concept, but still utterly underutilized. They argue that a brand without purpose is one that will never be understood or embraced by people. And, for brands to make real, human connections, they need to have a human-centric purpose. A purpose rooted in a genuine and fundamental human need is bigger than any brand promise or positioning statement. It's a shift from showing what a product does to what it means. A brand purpose tells people what the brand believes in and what it's going to do about it. Brands that have a purpose have a shared set of convictions and a compulsion across the entire organization to change things for the better. When brands live with a higher purpose, they are champions of positive change, and try to close the gap between the way the world is now and how they hope it to be.

A brand purpose supersedes everything in the conventional marketing protocol. It becomes the central motivation for the brand. It drives everything a brand does, says, and offers. It taps into people's individual, unique wants and needs to make the world a better place and life a more fulfilling experience.

As advertisers, we are masters at using creativity to transform human behavior. The authors of HumanKind remind us to make our work matter. To create marketing that respects people's needs, ambitions, intelligence, sense of humor, and enjoyment of life. Not to interrupt people, but to involve them. Not to demand people's attention, but rather to invite and reward participation.

While the book is "pretty" and does have some good information, I couldn't help but feel it was more of a book about the agency and their great works than anything else. Don't get me wrong, the agency, and even more so it's creator, deserve credit for their good work; however, overall it was a bit disappointing. I remember a book written by the founder of this agency a while back and the amount of information it had as well as the phenomenal ideas I received from it. I was hoping for the same out of this book; however, it didn't happen. I hope your experience is different!

Terrific...Simply terrific book!!

The examples are fantastic, the explanations are dead-on, and the logic, based on humanism, is unquestionable. So basic and fundamental; How did we miss it??

I originally bought this book because its mimimalist/zen-like cover drew my attention as a perfect conversation & decorative piece for my living room. At half-way through, I incorporated some of the ideas into my company and saw almost instant results!

THANK YOU FOR A FANTASTIC BOOK!! WORTH 10 TIMES MORE THAN THE COVER PRICE.

Just finished reading HumanKind and I am pleasantly surprised by the content, tone and style of the book. The visual representation of past and present Leo Burnett campaigns was also very enjoyable!

A quick and interesting read for sure and I would recommend it to any one in the business field, especially if you're in the creative industry.

Cheers!
