He is a New York Times and Wall St Journal best-selling author of six groundbreaking books on branding, including “Buyology: The Truth and Lies About Why We Buy”, “BRANDsense” and “Brandwashed”.

“Buyology” was voted “pick of the year” by USA Today and appeared on the Top 10 bestseller lists in the US and worldwide, including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. His book “BRANDsense” was acclaimed by the Wall Street Journal as “…one of the five best marketing books ever published.”

His latest book (St. Martins Press, New York): Small Data –The Tiny Clues That Uncover Huge Trends, was released February 2016. It is a NY Times Bestseller and beat the latest Harry Potter book for number one on Barnes and Noble.
