"Berger offers an engaging guide to the concept of social influence. Berger's prose is consistently entertaining, applying science to real life in surprising ways and explaining research through narrative. His book fascinates because it opens up the moving parts of a mysterious machine, allowing readers to watch them in action."
--Publishers Weekly
"Berger picks up where his Contagious: Why Things Catch On (2013) left off to explore why we desire what we do--and more, why we act as we do, politically, socially, economically, and emotionally... he does a good job of distilling scientific insights into easily understood object lessons on social psychology."--Kirkus Reviews
"Jonah continues to be one of the most innovative psychological researchers publishing today. His insights are not only thought provoking and counter-intuitive, he manages to express them in a practical and pragmatic way. I'll read anything he writes--and use it too."--Ryan Holiday, author of Trust Me I'm Lying and Growth Hacker Marketing.
"Invisible Influence is that rare business book that's both informative and enough fun to take to the beach."--Anne Fisher,
"Grab one or both of his books and read them through the lens of your own business. Just maybe you will become more effective at influencing your customers."
"This winding exploration of our collective psyche is fascinating..."--The Washington Post
