Book review: “Made to Stick” by Chip Heath and Dan Heath

Made To Stick by Chip and Dan Heath

This is one of the best business books I’ve read in a long time. In fact, I just finished reading it for the SECOND time in two weeks.

I highly recommend Made to Stick to any person who needs to communicate important ideas. Which is everyone, right? It doesn’t matter if you are a business executive, parent, PTA member, or rank-and-file employee, nothing happens until an idea is acted upon.

Made to Stick will help that process along.

In just the few weeks since I started reading it, some of the concepts from the book have already had a positive impact on my business.

Summarized from the flyleaf:

Why do some ideas thrive while others die? And how do we improve the chances of worthy ideas?

In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky message of all kinds – from the infamous “kidney-theft ring” hoax to a coach’s lessons on sportsmanship, to a vision for a new product at Sony – draw their power from the same six traits.

Made to Stick is a book that will transform the way you communicate ideas. It’s a fast-paced tour of success stories (and failures): the Nobel Prize-winning scientist who drank a glass of bacteria to prove a point about stomach ulcers; the charities who make use of the “Mother Teresa Effect”; the elementary-school teacher whose simulation actually prevented racial prejudice. Provocative, eye-opening, and often surprisingly funny, shows us the vital principles of winning ideas…and tells us how we can apply these rules to making our own message stick.
