<Dozentenstimmen zur Vorauflage:

Sicher das beste deutschsprachige Buch über Konsumentenpsychologie. Es steht nicht nur „Psychologie“ drauf, es wird fundiert auf die psychologischen Grundlagen eingegangen und darauf aufgebaut. Insbesondere neuere Forschung wurde rezipiert.

Prof. Dr. Michaela Wänke, Universität Mannheim

Das Buch gefällt durch eine enge und einfallsreiche Verknüpfung allgemeiner psychologischer Theorien und Befunde mit Konsumentenverhalten und Werbung. Der textual content ist intestine verständlich, manchmal sogar witzig. Der Stil unterscheidet sich damit wohltuend von den üblichen Schachtelsätzen deutscher sozialwissenschaftlicher Lehrbücher. Trotz der Flüssigkeit der Sprache bleibt das Buch stets wissenschaftsbasiert.
