Seit kurzem versuchen Hirnforscher, Verhaltenspsychologen und Soziologen gemeinsam neue Antworten auf eine uralte Frage zu finden: Warum tun wir eigentlich, was wir tun? Was genau prägt unsere Gewohnheiten? Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus der Forschung wie dem Alltag erzählt Charles Duhigg von der Macht der Routine und kommt dem Mechanismus, aber auch den dunklen Seiten der Gewohnheit auf die Spur. Er erklärt, warum einige Menschen es schaffen, über Nacht mit dem Rauchen aufzuhören (und andere nicht), weshalb das Geheimnis sportlicher Höchstleistung in antrainierten Automatismen liegt und wie sich die Anonymen Alkoholiker die Macht der Gewohnheit zunutze machen. Nicht zuletzt schildert er, wie Konzerne Millionen ausgeben, um unsere Angewohnheiten für ihre Zwecke zu manipulieren. Am Ende wird eines klar: Die Macht von Gewohnheiten prägt unser Leben weit mehr, als wir es ahnen.

Before his epiphany, Ray Lopez was every car buyer's “worst nightmare” … but not before he had them believing he was their new best friend! A car salesman for 30 years, Lopez was trained to analyze potential clients for quick psychological profiles so he could tailor his approach to push all their hot buttons and convince––or coerce––them into purchasing the car HE wanted them to buy at the price HE said they could afford. Lopez doesn't take all the credit, however. The entire dealership was in on the game, from the service managers to the showroom staff to the car porters, taking cues from him to deliver their pitches, too. Even before customers stepped onto the lot, they were manipulated by the car dealership! But, the cold slap of reality left its mark on his face when Lopez cut a fair deal on a Mustang GT convertible for his brother. “We're here to make money on everybody! You steal every last dollar you can get!” screamed his manager as Lopez's brother drove off the lot. “If you cant f___ your own family and brag about it afterwards, you don't belong here!” Thanks to that wake-up call, Lopez quit to happily finish out his career at one of the few honest, reputable U.S. dealerships. Although he can't undo any of the deals he drove down consumers' throats before his revelation, Lopez made it his goal to expose the uncouth practices of car dealers by educating the people on every dirty detail, questionable sales practice and untold secret of how dealerships con the public.Before buying another car, let Ray Lopez, a former “swift talking, blood-sucking salesperson” and author of Inside the Minds of Car Dealers give you a look under the hood of dealerships to show you every trick that will be used against you! Learn every single psychological ploy and manipulative scheme typical auto dealers employ to squeeze every last dime out of your pocket––all while you're being sold a car you may not even want! Discover in detail the 12 crucial dos and don'ts to car buying from a seasoned insider. This comprehensive, tell-all car buying guide holds nothing back!
