2692469539_bdcea8c064_bRecently, I was asked by a friend why there have been so many guest posts on the blog lately. “What’s Nir been up to?” he asked. “Why aren’t you writing anymore?” The answer is, I am writing.

I’m working on two books at the moment. The first is a brief overview of my Hook Model, targeted at product managers, designers, and start-up folks. This e-book will be emailed to all blog subscribers by the end of the year.

The second book — still in early stages — is also about habit-forming technology, but is written in a narrative-style and targeted at a broader audience.

So while I’m feverishly plugging away at these two projects, I will publish occasional blog post of my own in addition to featuring select guest posts related to business, behavior and the brain. Feel free to suggest your own ideas for a guest post.

What else?

In other news, I’ve been teaching quite a bit lately. I once again taught the Hook Model at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and Design Schools this fall and continue to host workshops across the country.

The three upcoming workshops below will be open to the public:

And finally…

I’ve starting an Angelist syndicate!

I’ve been angel investing for the past 5 years and am now pleased to offer others the opportunity to invest along with me. My thesis centers around businesses that do good for customers and their bottom line by forming — you guessed it – habits!

Thank you for reading and I’d love to hear your suggestions for improving the blog in the comments section below.

    I cannot wait for your book! I run a social network/dating site, and I have read literally every single blog post you have here (except the latest ones about “combating addiction”, they don’t apply so much to what I do, heh).

    Your blog has completely changed the way I think about running my own site/app, and pretty much my entire mentality when it comes to businesses, specially app/websites, so I’m sure your book will be pure gold!!

    Kind regards from freezing cold Europe!
