I think Neuro-marketing qualifies on both counts. First, it's an easy read. Large print, clear organization, amusing simple cartoon graphics. You can flash through this book's 200 pages in no time.
The book's new information is the study of the old brain. I don't want to tell you what the books going to tell you. I just want to tell you enough so you may know whether you should buy the book. There is no detailed or scientific study of the brain. Just the conclusions drawn from those studies. And those conclusions are: 1) We have an "old" brain which was developed millions of years before our "new" cognitive brain; 2) The "old" brain makes the buying decision and the new brain only rationalizes, explains or attempts to justify our decisions; and 3) There are 6 specific ways to communicate with the old brain and if you don't use them it's like trying to sell to someone who speaks a different language than you.
I also like how the book is organized. Clear short chapters. Nitpicking, but I think they could have broken chapter six into several chapters. But the organization is very helpful both in learning and then applying what one has learned.
Interestingly, and this is important if you're thinking of buying this book, this is called Neuro-marketing which implies that it's a marketing book. But it's as close to a pure sales book as you can get. (It's sometimes hard to draw a line between marketing and sales).
I tend to be reluctant to reccomend books, becasue people have different tastes and it's hard to tell if my opionion applies to me or to all. I feel very comfortable reccomending this book. It is really just one of the very best books I have ever read on sales. I would be astonished if you didn't learn a LOT of new stuff integrated with a lot of old stuff that you probably need to re-learn and re-apply.
What can I say? Buy it.
The authors present in a clear and logical fashion why those few successful sales programs that are based on consultative selling work, and how we can achieve even better results for our clients and our companies by applying the science behind how we make decisions. For you sales and marketing professionals who are highly successful, you may well be an "unconscious competent"; this book will make you a conscious competent by explaining the way our decisions are really made, including our purchasing decisions.
What we learn is that it's the "old brain" that makes the decision to buy - not our new brain with all the logic. It is almost certain that all the reasons you give for purchase of a product are really justifications for the fact that you were really avoiding pain. We learn that the fastest way to the old brain is through the optic nerve - that means pictures!
We learn that six characteristics of the old brain: Self-centered, Contrast, Tangible, Beginning & End, Visual, and Emotion. In order to help our client, we need to shape our message, the picture, to maximize the message and stimulate these old brain needs.
As you would expect, this book is easy to read, compelling and gets the message across. Anyone in business and especially those involved in direct sales must read this book and put it to use.
