Branding Lovemarks

Lovemarks, the book: "aimed at six-year-olds"—rarely does bullshit get exposed with such clarity and wit. Forget brands. What you need is an intimate bond with your dandruff shampoo. Read it.

Thank you for bringing this up.
I've been thinking the same for the past year & was wondering when someone more in the public spotlight then myself would expose that damn book.
It's always infuriating when you are treated by a writer/publisher like you have a subaverage IQ.

Thanx again Kit for bringing this up. I feel better now.

Razvan Roman:

After reading the first half I took a pause and had the exact reaction of the second half of the article.

Useless to say I was relieved when the bullshit was exposed.

Industry insiders took its word-substitution scam as a token of joyful articulate incompetence ever since its publication, but such low-level candy has a certain appeal to young outsiders—that's why exposing it as an intellectual fraud is an act of decency.
