    Well I'd like to add that good story telling still required nowadays, because so much content on the internet right now. If consumer have problem to solve he is gonna read even boring text, if not - he is gonna skim though, skip it fully or will be very skeptical.

    Can this thread save your life, and perhaps countless others? Yes.

    GOLD! MINDSET 
    Interesting story, I don't think it's a choice problem though, because what right choice can be when you are drunk? It's simply bad discipline, normal reasonable person will avoid driving in this condition, gave keys to sober person or hide it. This summer my friend got into a car crash after...

    Influence: The Pyschology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini

    Very old book, scientific writing and aim for clueless people who've been taken advantage of, so I think it's better books out there for sure:) I think price makes it stand out, when you are looking at products with same price it's hard to choose, on other hand when price higher it's grabs...
