About the Author:

As a senior executive at the world's most creative advertising agencies, including TBWA, Ogilvy, Hal Riney & Partners, and Lowe & Partners in New York City, Patrick Hanlon has worked on such famous brands as Absolut, UPS, John Deere, H&R Block, LEGO, General Motors, BellSouth, Pepsi International, Sears, and IBM. In August 2003, he founded Thinktopia and began sharing his proprietary new primal branding construct with marketers from Target, Starbucks, American Express, and elsewhere. It was immediately hailed as "a provocative new look at classic branding." Others simply cheer that primal branding is "not the same old branding B.S." After a decade of working on Madison Avenue, the author is now headquartered in Minneapolis, where he serves Fortune 500 clients across the country.

From Publishers Weekly:

Positing that "a brand is a belief system," Hanlon, founder and CEO of "primal branding" company Thinktopia, throws a reverse spin on the 12-step addiction recovery program to trumpet his 7 steps (called "key factors") to inspire consumer addiction. His formula has vaguely mythic qualities: successful brands, he argues, come with a creation story, a creed, rituals, icons, sacred words, non-believers and a leader who's overcome stiff opposition. The similarities to religion (Hanlon prefers "culture of belief") will pique the thoughtful reader, but Hanlon's recounting of familiar business success stories (UPS's story, Lou Gerstner's turnaround of IBM) seems at odds with a book blurbed as "not the same old branding B.S." Though much of the book is the simple recasting of age-old branding tenets (Hanlon's "creed" is interchangeable with "slogan"; "icon" with "logo"), Hanlon's energetic case for thinking differently about common practices makes for a rousing read.
