Why do some people drink black coffee and others stick to tea?

Why do some people prefer competitors’ products?

Why do we sell less in this country?

Many companies fail to acknowledge and analyze disparities observed among customers and simply put them down to culture or emotion. New neuroendocrinological research proves that consumers are rational: They just have a different biological perception of the same stimulus! Their preferences, behavior, and decisions are strongly influenced by the hundreds of millions of sensors monitoring their body and brain. People with more taste buds are for example sensitive to bitterness and are more likely to drink their coffee with sugar or milk, or to drink tea.

After reading the book, managers will be able to:

· Understand and predict consumers’ behavior and preferences

· Design the right sensory mix (color, shape, taste, smell, texture, and sound) for each product

· Fine-tune their positioning and product range for every local market

· Systematically increase their innovation hit rate

Review:

“This book is a perfect and modern combination of the basics and applications of Marketing Research. The relation between theory and how marketing research methods are executed in IBM SPSS Statistics is excellent. This book combines these elements with clear insights in problems and solutions that we often face in using marketing research techniques and methods. It is a must for every student and practitioner in Marketing and Marketing Research.” (Professor P.S.H. (Peter) Leeflang, Frank M. Bass Distinguished Professor of Marketing, University of Groningen, the Netherlands)

 “The second edition of the market research text by Marko Sarstedt and Erik Mooi is excellent, and includes expanded coverage of relevant topics and the most recent developments in the field, but also continues to execute the concise, non-technical approach that made the first edition so accessible. The real world examples and case studies enhance the chapters but equally important is this new edition includes many mobile tags that enable readers to easily locate additional supplementary material on a variety of topics. I strongly recommend that you consider adding this to your market research resources.” (Professor Joe F. Hair, University of South Alabama, USA)

“This book is my first choice when I introduce applied stats to students. The book covers everything you need (e.g., ANOVA, regression analysis, factor analysis, and cluster analysis), is easy to understand and has excellent market research examples, which my students really like.” (Professor Christian M. Ringle, Hamburg University of Technology, Germany)

“Diana Derval has written the best book that I have seen on the critical role of the five senses in determining our brand preferences.  Her writing is lively, full of relevant case studies, and rich in insights.  No marketing department or new product department must proceed without first reading this book.” (Philip Kotler, S.C. Johnson & Son Professor of International Marketing, Kellogg School of Management)

“A very innovative and promising approach, which takes into account the physiological diversity of consumers, and proposes to link it with behavioral characteristics; product developers and marketing teams should read this book in order to take advantage of the variability of sensory perceptions.”  (Nathalie Jacquet,  Head of Sensory Analysis & New Products Development, Research Center Pernod Ricard)     

“Professor Diana Derval inspires you with her mental agility, always seizing any opportunity to break "conventional" consumer insights with a new, scientific approach, producing unexpected strategies for predicting consumer behaviors and new ways of identifying unexplored, profitable market segments. A fascinating book!”  (Markus Kohler, Director Packaging at Philip Morris International)

“Diana Derval invites us to explore our senses, with the help of fascinating scientific discoveries – and a great sense of humor. Reading her book was like an eye-opener: it changed my vision of marketing and made me consider a new consumer approach.” (Alexis Mühlhoff, Head of Marketing, Komatsu)

“Five golden stars! "The Right Sensory Mix" takes the concepts of genetics and neuroendocrinology and applies them to predict consumer behavior. The text is intellectually brilliant and delightful. Read the book and you will want to adapt Prof. Derval's model because the book discloses in detail how sensory networks and the Hormonal QuotientTM help predict consumer's attitudes and behavior, the data obtained from her own scientific approach, to how the technique works as exemplified by well known commercial brands.” (Magda Carvalho, PhD Genetics, Faculty Member Cornell Medical School New York, J.D., US Patent Attorney)  

“Thanks to her discovery concerning the relationship between hormones and sensory sensitivity, Diana Derval proposes an amazing scientific approach to accurately profile consumers, according to their Hormonal QuotientTM. She succeeds in explaining her findings on smell, color, and texture preferences in a very simple and lively way making her book so pleasant to read. This original tool can be recommended for marketing profiling or in addition to a psychology study to comprehend one’s personality.” (Wai Wong, accessory group development manager, Sephora/LVMH Group)
