Praise for Consumerology: The Truth about Consumers and the Psychology of Shopping

  • A fascinating romp through the psychological underpinnings of consumer behaviour: risk aversion, safety in numbers, scarcity value and priming. It's well written, accessible and entertaining, yet thought provoking. - Alan Giles, Fellow of The Marketing Society and Associate Fellow, Said Business School, University of Oxford

  • Fascinating stuff. - Steve Wright, BBC Radio 2

  • Thought-provoking stuff. - The Scotsman

  • Graves does more than just show marketers the error of their ways. He shows them a path to better insight. - Director Magazine

  • A good read. - Library Journal

  • Consumerology is a publishing phenomenon. - Cambridge Business Magazine

  • Consumer.ology is a refreshingly iconoclastic skewer through the heart of traditional market research methods and reason. Graves' peppering of psychological theory with pithy anecdotes of misguided consumer successes and failures is bound to at once ruffle feathers and get heads nodding within marketing and innovation circles.

  • This is an eye-opening, thoroughly researched and tightly argued book. It will alarm some, enrage others and state the obvious for many. - Manhatten Marketing Maven
