If the consumer economy had a sex, it would be female. If the business world had a sex, it would be male. And therein lies the pickle. Women are the engine of the global economy, driving 80 percent of consumer spending in the United States alone. They hold the purse strings, and when they’ve got a tight grip on them as they do now, companies must be shrewder than ever to win them over. Just when executives have mastered becoming technology literate, they find there’s another skill they need: becoming female literate. This isn’t always easy. Gender is the most powerful determinant of how a person views the world and everything in it. It’s stronger than age, income, or race. While there are mountains of research done every year segmenting consumers and analyzing why they buy, more often than not it doesn’t factor in the one piece of information that trumps them all: the sex of the buyer. It’s stunning how many companies overlook the psychology of gender when we all know that men and women look at the world so differently. Bridget Brennan’s Why She Buys shows decision makers how to bridge this divide and capture the business of the world’s most powerful consumers just when they need it most. • No Matter Where You Live, Women Are a Foreign Country: You’ll discover the value in studying women with the same intensity that you would a foreign market. Women grow up within a culture of their own gender, which is often invisible to men. Brennan dissects this female culture and explains the important brain differences between men and women that may cause your female customers to notice things about your products, marketing campaigns, or sales environment that you might have overlooked. • The High Fives: There are five major trends driving the global female population that are key to determining their wants and needs. These global shifts are just beginning to be tapped by businesses, and learning about them can provide you with an invaluable blueprint for long-range planning. • The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Find out how the best and brightest companies have cracked the female code, and hear horror stories about those that haven’t. Through instructive case studies and interviews, Why She Buys provides practical, field-proven techniques that you can apply to your business immediately, from giants like Procter & Gamble and Toyota to upstarts like Method home-care products and lululemon athletica apparel. At a time when every company is looking for a competitive advantage, Bridget Brennan offers a new and effective lens for capturing market share. From the Hardcover edition.

Der stumme Frühling erschien erstmals 1962. Der Titel bezieht sich auf das eingangs erzählte Märchen von der blühenden Stadt, in der sich eine seltsame, schleichende Seuche ausbreitet … Das spannend geschriebene Sachbuch wirkte bei seinem Erscheinen wie ein Alarmsignal und avancierte rasch zur Bibel der damals entstehendenÖkologie-Bewegung. ZumerstenMal wurde hier in eindringlichem Appell die Fragwürdigkeit des chemischen Pflanzenschutzes dargelegt. An einer Fülle von Tatsachen machte Rachel Carson seine schädlichen Auswirkungen auf die Natur und die Menschen deutlich. Ihre Warnungen haben seither nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren.

Der Volksmund sagt: "Geld macht nicht glücklich." Wir alle ahnen aber: Es gibt einen Zusammenhang zwischen Glück und Geld. Doch wie sieht er aus? Die Frage lautet also: Was muss ich mit meinem Geld anstellen, um glücklich zu werden? Dieser Frage haben sich die beiden US-Wissenschaftler Elizabeth Dunn und Michael Norton angenommen und fünf einleuchtende Antworten gefunden: 1. Kaufe Erlebnisse 2. Gönne Dir etwas Besonderes 3. Kaufe Dir Zeit 4. Zahle heute, konsumiere später 5. Investiere in andere. Anhand von zahlreichen Beispielen und Anekdoten vermitteln sie frisch, lebendig und ganz unakademisch, wie Geld in Glück verwandelt werden kann. Und auch Unternehmen profitieren von Dunns und Nortons Erkenntnissen. Zum einen erfahren sie, wie sie für zufriedenere Mitarbeiter sorgen. Zum anderen können die Firmen gezielt Strategien entwickeln, mit denen sie aus ihren Kunden glückliche und treue Kunden machen können.
