Sally Hogshead captivates us again with her new book, Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers to Persuasion and Captivation.

From why your brand should do a shot of Jägermeister to why Hitler was able to gain the trust of millions of people, Sally uses engaging stories and facts to pull us into the world of fascination.

Sally commissioned a study for this book, the Kelton Fascination Study, to determine what people thought fascination was worth. The findings show that most people will pay more money if you can help them fascinate.

Women will spend more to be fascinating then they spend on food and clothes combined.

She argues that the decisions that you make are governed more by the triggers to fascination rather than by personal choice.
