Persuasive Technology free pdf Can computers change what you think and do? Can they motivate you to stop smoking, persuade you to buy insurance, or convince you to join the Army? 'Yes, they can', says Dr. B.J. Fogg, director of the Persuasive Technology Lab at Stanford University.

In this thought-provoking book, based on nine years of research in captology, Dr. Fogg reveals how Web sites, software applications, and mobile devices can be used to change people's attitudes and behavior.
