LEARN THE SECRET TO CAPTIVATING YOUR AUDIENCE.
In Captivology, award-winning journalist, author, entrepreneur and investor Ben Parr (Forbes 30 Under 30) presents a new understanding of attention -- how it works, why it matters, and how we leverage psychological triggers to draw and retain attention for our passions, projects, and ideas.

Parr combines the latest research on attention with interviews with more than fifty scientists and visionaries--Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, film director Steven Soderbergh, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner, magician David Copperfield, New York Times bestselling author Susan Cain, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, and more--who have successfully brought their ideas, projects, companies, and products to the forefront of cultural consciousness. 

The result is an insightful and practical book that will change how you assign jobs to your kids or staff, craft a multi-million dollar ad campaign, deliver your next presentation, attract users to your product, or convince the world to support your cause.
