Made to Stick

Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Take Hold and Others Come Unstuck by Chip and Dan Heath is an interesting reading.

The authors list 6 factors that make a concept or idea stick:
1. Simple
2. Unexpected
3. Concrete
4. Credible
5. Emotional
6. Stories

At first glance you would say that´s clear, but to really create an effective message requires a lot of efforts.
The book is an easy reading and very well written. I would recommend to anybody who wants to improve the communication and make ideas “stick”.
