From the Inside Flap
According to leading neuroscientists, 95 percent of all thoughts, emotions, and learning occur before we are ever aware of it. Yet, most marketing efforts forgo the vast subconscious and instead target the rational, conscious mind. If you want to get ahead of your competition, it's time to stop selling to just 5 percent of your customer's brain! Through the wonders of modern neuroscience, tools now exist that can help explain the brain's cognitive processes. When you understand how your customers' brains work, you can appeal to the powerful subconscious—and get better results for less money.

Neuromarketing can benefit your organization—whether a business or a nonprofit—in measurable ways. Get easy-to-implement, detailed tactics that are proven to boost sales, including:
Ease the very real pain of high prices through bundling, using decoys, and anchoring your prices effectively
Use images of money to stimulate a consumer to make a selfish purchase, like a sports car (but avoid these tactics when encouraging the purchase of a gift)
Win loyalty with rewards and quality contact time with the customer
Keep your brand associations consistent (and consistently good!) and become the more familiar brand
Build sensory features into your products, services, and marketing to appeal directly to the emotions and stored memories of your customers
And much more!

Clear, Actionable, Research-based Advice
By Peter Meyers
As a psychologist and marketer, I've been a long-time fan of Roger's blog and was excited to see him finally write a book. Brainfluence strikes a great (and rare) balance between being research-based and academic while still being clear and actionable. The market seems to be flooded with one or the other - academics who can't communicate, or marketers who only have opinions with nothing to back them up.
I've read many of the classics, like Cialdini's "Influence", so I was pleasantly surprised to find not only new data in Brainfluence, but new ways of looking at that data. The "100 Ways" approach made for a great collection of real-world examples and I definitely walked away with some ideas for my existing clients.

Very practical, to the point and easy to relate to. Highly recommended!
By T. Harvey
Brainfluence is a very practical guide to how the brain works and how that relates to everyday marketing ideas. It dives straight into practical applications and is more concise than some of the other neuromarketing books out there. The chapters are to the point and often reference other parts of the book, and he mentions lots of industry research but quickly summarizes the applicable points. There are some parts where he brings up ideas that go on a limb past where the research currently is, but he explains when these come up and describes how that conclusion came about.
There are quite a few real life examples to relate to (e.g. Super Bowl ads, direct mailers and New Coke), and if you've read any other similar books he weaves those ideas together into cohesive thoughts and expands on them. If you haven't seen any other books on the subject - this is a good place to start and doesn't require any previous understanding of neuroscience. He also talks more about the ethical implications of neuromarketing and how to avoid those problems than some of the other books I've seen.
Overall, a great book. After years of experience in marketing, I had lots of "a-ha moments" and it was a pretty quick read. Highly recommended!

At least 100 great fundraising ideas
By J. Brooks
I'm a fundraiser, not a commercial marketer, but I've found this book to be indispensable. If you're a fundraiser, and you prefer to base your fundraising on facts and science (as opposed to your own hunches and superstition), this is the book for you. It focuses on practical marketing takeaways from neurological research. There are 100 short chapters, each with a neuroscience finding and how it might be used in marketing.
I came away from this book with more than a hundred ideas I can test or just put to work in fundraising. If even a small percentage of these ideas improve results, my clients stand to make the price of the book hundreds of times over in the coming months.
Like any science, neuroscience research is extremely technical; the findings are hard for us non-scientists to understand, much less put to work. Brainfluence bridges the chasm between the research and the marketplace. It's an easy, quick, enjoyable read, and you'll get ideas you can use.
