Summary

Why do some products capture our attention, while others flop? What makes us engage with certain products out of habit? Is there a pattern underlying how technologies hook us? This audiobook introduces listeners to the "Hook Model," a four steps process companies use to build customer habits. Through consecutive hook cycles, successful products reach their ultimate goal of bringing users back repeatedly - without depending on costly advertising or aggressive messaging. Hooked is a guide to building products people can't put down. Written for product managers, designers, marketers, startup founders, and people eager to learn more about the things that control our behaviors, this audiobook gives listeners:
• Practical insights to create user habits that stick. • Actionable steps for building products people love. • Behavioral techniques used by Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and other habit-forming products.
Nir Eyal distilled years of research, consulting and practical experience to write a manual for creating habit-forming products. Nir has taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. His writing on technology, psychology and business appears in the Harvard Business Review, The Atlantic, TechCrunch, and Psychology Today.

Can't listen to narrator

Narrator makes the unbearable with his almost AI voice. Better to get the printed version.

Probably good book killed by the reading

What did you like best about Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products? What did you like least?

The reading. It was like someone fed the text to a text-to-speech programme. It made it impossible to actually listen to the content.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Dave Wright?

Practically anyone else.

Any additional comments?

I have to get it in printed/digital format so I can actually get what the book is about.

Can't believe I paid for this audio book

Would you try another book from Nir Eyal and/or Nir Eyal?

Yes

How could the performance have been better?

Read by a possible teenager who doesn't know how to read. Incredible. He skips the words that he mispronounces, doesn't even bother to correct it. Stops before some words in totally random places which is so distracting.

I was tracing the actual book while listening and he replaces phrases like "internal triggers" with "an internal trigger". Dude! If you want to write a book then write one, but don't modify this!

Finally there are weird cuts and merges in the recording.

Incredibly unprofessional. This audio book should be banned on audible. If I wanted low quality I'd go to other sites. I'm paying to get quality.

Such a good book but a terrible audio book.

Interesting book. Terrible performance.

Would you listen to Hooked again? Why?

No. Painful narration. Bad microphone. Record again with a real narrator please.

What did you like best about this story?

The content is good and the examples useful if you can get over the performance.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nir Eyal’s performances?

No

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Any additional comments?

Re-record please!
