About the Book
SECTION 2: THE UNIVERSAL LAWS
Section 2 of the book delves into the universal laws uncovered through our ethnography work and substantiated by thousands of consumers in our quantitative study. While you may find yourself disagreeing in some cases with what these laws suggest, we found them to be so universal in their application that their very existence lays the foundation of behavior and perceptions that unites consumers, no matter their age, socioeconomic status or gender
This section also examines how the power of rationalization and confluence of disparate laws serve to create a market as complex as the individuals representing it. However, there are nuances that coalesce around identity as one matures through compelling life events. These commonalities represent the entry point for understanding individuals in a virtual world – whether as ourselves or as consumers we attempt to serve.
