    Brandwashed

    I picked this up at the library --  by Martin Lindstrom, "Brandwashed: Tricks Companies Use to Manipulate Our Minds and Persuade Us to Buy." I'm through the first two chapters and wanted to let others know that it's worth reading! I'm a pretty savvy consumer but there are tricks out there that I haven't caught on to...

     Sounds interesting as I hate being manipulated!   All the copies are currently checked out in our library system.  I put in a hold, but have six ahead of me.  Appreciate the heads up.

     I've finished the book and still recommend it... My family is getting an earful from me now every time we watch TV together. "We're being manipulated!"

     Library does not have it (too new), but they will order it for their permanent collection.

    Sounds like a wonderful book. Just requested from library. Looks like 9 holds on 12 copies available. Hopefully won't be too long a wait. Thanks for recommendation.

    I've been waiting for a copy to be available at my local library since 1/23 (according to the library records).  I am now 8 of 11.
