How to be Indistractable w/ Nir Eyal

On this episode, Jake and Gino interview Nir Eyal. Nir is the author of “Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products” and “Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life”.

Previously, he taught as a Lecturer in Marketing at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Design School, and has sold two technology companies since 2003.

For most of his career, he has worked in the video gaming and advertising industries where he learned and applied (and at times rejected) the techniques used to motivate and manipulate users. He writes to help companies create behaviors that benefit their users while educating people on how to build healthy habits in their own lives.
