Chip Heath, Author of Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die

Chip Heath is the co-author of Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die and a Professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

In this podcast, Matt and Nir caught up with Chip Heath, who along with his brother Dan, wrote Made to Stick -- a book that has been a getting a lot of good press lately.

The book draws on psychology research to examine why ideas become memorable. It has become a virtual "how-to" guide for anyone looking to introduce new concepts and products.

Sticky ideas are the result of 6 key attributes: simplicity, unexpectedness, concreteness, credibility, emotions and stories (SUCCES). For more on this, listent to the podcast and check out the book!

Here is a full video of the interview. Special thanks to Ben Henretig for the great job on shooting and editing the video!

I'm also a big fan of the book. Between Chip, his brother, and Tim Ferriss, I have a kind of checklist for living and communicating! :)

The ideas in this book really stick!

It shows strategies for creating sticky ideas and how I can apply these rules at work to evaluate my communications, which I believe will be appreciated by activists, entrepreneurs, and businesses of all sizes.
