Summary

Do we really need more consumer ‘stuff’? While most everyone will answer ‘No,’ we still see thousands of new products and services launched every day.These compete for our attention with already inundated markets filled with existing products – in the midst of the most intense information flows in history.Traditional adverts are not a cost-effective solution and like much more.So how can you successfully catch consumers’ interest?This book provides the answer. It’s all about adapting to the demands of entertainment – which means product stories that are simultaneously sales driving and identity building.The book presents volumes of examples – including how one of the most wide-spread breakfast cereals was originally developed as a way to counteract masturbation. It also fully explains concepts like Business mindfulness, the ‘Happy Valley phenomenon,’ and ‘Copperfield rhetoric.’ Moreover, you read about how a single word is used to encourage consumers to buy eggs from chickens that are less healthy and how consumers were led to pay 12 times more for their bowl of oatmeal porridge. Before concluding, the book provides a simple model for how to build quality product stories using four cornerstones, five elements that sell stories, and the ‘ICE’ you need.Ingemar Fredriksson has over 40 years’ experience in business development and marketing while holding senior management positions in many Swedish and international companies. His previous books have all reached best-seller listings, several for many years, having received many positive reviews and wide media attention.

    “This book makes a well-researched argument for exploring and implementing an integrative approach to cancer treatment.” —Keith I. Block, MD, author of Life over Cancer   The traditional strategy of exclusive conventional cancer treatment has not worked. Integrative oncology that prescribes tested natural, non-pharmaceutical therapies to enhance the effectiveness and reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery is the answer. Major medical school cancer centers are researching and practicing this new state-of-the-art strategy, but it is not being accepted by mainstream oncology. It must become acceptable and accessible to all cancer victims if cancer is to ever be defeated. Patients must insist on it and the general public must support it. The objective of A New Strategy for the War On Cancer is to reveal a new approach to the public and to invoke a paradigm shift toward its adoption.
