"HERD is a rare thing: a book that transforms the reader's perception of how the world works".
—Matthew D'Ancona, THE SPECTATOR
"This book is a must. Once you have read it you will understand why Mark Earls is regarded as a marketing guru."
—Daniel Finkelstein, THE TIMES
This paperback version of Mark Earls' groundbreaking and award winning book comes updated with new stats and figures and provides two completely revised chapters that deal with the rise of social networking.
Since the Enlightenment there has been a very simple but widely held assumption that we are a species of thinking individuals and human behaviour is best understood by examining the psychology of individuals. It appears, however, that this insight is plain wrong. The evidence from a number of leading behavioural and neuroscientists suggests that our species is designed as a herd or group animal. Mark Earls applies this evidence to the traditional mechanisms of marketing and consumer behaviour, with a result that necessitates a complete rethink about these subjects.
HERD provides a host of unusual examples and anecdotes to open the mind of the business reader, from Peter Kay to Desmond Tutu, Apple to UK Sexual Health programmes, George Bush to Castle Lager, from autism to depression to the real explanation for the placebo effect in pharmaceutical testing.
Our work base at Glastonbury (Let’s call it Moose Ball) was run by our superior, Herr Braun, with a militant style that would give Adolf Hitler wet dreams. On the first day we were separated into two teams (The SS and The Gestapo) and given different shifts (divide and rule, guys. Herr Braun ran our workplace such like a Prison Camp, I’m sure she took tips from Rudolph Hoss – the commander of Auschwitz. She ran the joint like it was a Nazi Shawshank Prison (Schawschwank. But here’s the sadly ironic kicker - if it had been Auschwitz, then let’s just say there would have been no Nuremberg trials needed. Despite Herr Braun’s strictness, there was little and less order and efficiency to proceedings. We had a saying at Moose Ball: 'If it's logical, then it's wrong. ' Say what you want about Rudolph Hoss, he ran a tight ship at old Auschy…Herr Braun couldn’t have. Herr Braun literally couldn't organize a holocaust at Auschwitz. (not that this is a bad thing, but change the word ‘Holocaust’ for ‘Dinner Service’ and the word ‘Auschwitz’ for ‘Glastonbury’ and you’ll see why we had an issue. ) King Louis and Milla Antoinette were a ‘vegan’ couple who were on the same team as I. I put vegan in quotes because I know for a fact Milla Antoinette once chugged an entire keg of milk, melted cheese and raw eggs just for the ‘bants’. Worse still, I spied King Louis behind the Dofunny (a constantly dusty canteen) one day shoveling a bumper pack of half-frozen Turkey Twizzlers down his gullet (Iceland's own brand they were). He saw me staring in horror, marched right up to me, looked me right in the eye and sneered ‘No one will ever believe you,’ before breathing sweaty meaty breath in my face and strutting away. Stella was a lovely lass on the ‘rival team’, but she was haunted by a living, breathing shadow. Sometimes I’d see her talking to the shadow, and I swear I’d even see the shadow talking back. This concerned me a bit, as I’m a bit edgy about black magic. Someone once suggested to me that the shadow was not only a real person, but a colleague of ours called Kenny. For a number of reasons, I didn’t believe that, and so avoided too much contact with Stella for fear of dabbling in the Occult. One of mine and Helly’s favourite past times was drunkenly accosting Greenpeace volunteers whilst on a night out in the crew bars. Whilst Helly would try to win their approval by banging on about how much of a good vegan she had been this week (Helly would actually make a great vegan because she. Source: Curiouser and Curiouser
