I Read A Book: April Edition


This guy is Nir Eyal and he wrote the book I read this month, Hooked.

This book, recommended by Melvin who thought I’d enjoy the reading, explores a model for making products that are addictive, a few real-world examples of products that have done so, and a bit of thought on the morals around making addictive things.

I have to say that this book was steady in its pacing which I appreciated; it was neither fast nor slow as a read.

After I finished it, I immediately wanted to know if and how I could apply it where I work and I’m looking forward to the journey that brings me. I actually have some small ideas for how to apply what I’ve seen here (although the larger part will take work and may not be fully applicable to our product).

If you’ve read this book, tell me about it in the comments.

Otherwise, see you next week!
