5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for everyone who cares about driving customer engagement.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 January 2021
In this book Nir Eyal provides a simple yet powerful model to help your customers form habits that connect their problems with your solutions.

The Hooked model focuses on:
An initial 'trigger'
Which drives an 'action'
Where you get a 'variable reward'
Which causes an 'investment' due to reciprocation

Nir provides some fascinating insights into how companies have successfully adopted this model eg. Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, Tinder and case studies from The Bible App and Fitbod, where Nir tells his story of the personal benefits he got from Fitbod.

Social media companies and video game makers know these tactics already, but Nir wrote this book so everyone can build products that help people do what they really want, but for the lack of good product design, don't.

A must-read for everyone who cares about driving customer engagement.
