Didn't like it - not deep enough and full of buzzwords.

I had a chance to read an advanced copy, and I was taken by the link the author draws between video games and behavioral science, and how companies can use that link to motivate people to participate in something as mundane as an employee portal.

Big data plays a huge role here, too, and with the NSA finally putting this in the brains of people who don't work in IT, the timing seems perfect to talk about using big data for purposes other than ferreting out bad guys.

Some facts are true eye-openers

NetGalley offered this book for review. I am always looking for ways to engage both employees and customers at my business and gamification, the subject of this book, would be great if I can figure out how to do it.

Quote: "I wrote this book to share what we’ve learned with you and arm you with everything you need to know to build a loyalty and engagement program that drives a competitive advantage for your business."

A decent read. Like many how-to books it is strong in setting up the problems but a little less strong in the execution. There is some gamification here, but mostly it is about customer engagement. There is good structure here and the real world examples did help solidify the points.

Not the quintessential book on the subject, but a good one to read none-the-less.

Great read on how to incorporate loyalty 3.0 into a workplace. Although, I am looking for ways to incorporate gamification into my classroom instead of the workplace it gave a good understanding of gamification and its principles. It would have been nice to see more on the gamification side of it, but this book was more based towards companies instead of me.

The case studies were the big take away for me as I had already read a book that, I feel, did a better job of explaining how to setup a system like this.

This book had the extra little insight to focus on apply the gamification towards the employees as well, hence the 3.0. I feel a lot of the better companies were already on that route.

Weak in the middle with too many shallow case studies, but the framework is solid and well argued, and the example in the appendix is worth the price of the book if you are paying attention. A lot of these elements have become obvious through their extensive use, but there is still a lot of value to be wrung from them.

I had a bunch of of "ah-ha!" moments while reading Loyalty 3.0. Chock full of interesting, real-life examples, this book provides a practical guide for leveraging motivation techniques to drive true loyalty.

It's a perfect book to start on topic gamification.Its internal structure (chapters and their orders) makes it efficient while reading. It's not a deep work in technical meaning, contains no implementation or code, but it's a good guide and a good starting point.

Painfully basic overview.

This might be a good introduction if you've never been exposed to the internet/digital space before, but for those familiar with even basic terms/ideas/companies in this industry, this book has little to offer.

Great read! Helped me connect the dots between gamification, big data, and motivation. Information will be helpful in my new business venture.

Very interesting topic. Examples all within the companies clients (although this is disclosed at the beginning). Would like to read more on the topic from other case studies or authors.

nice part on intrinsic motivation and the most important aspects of gamification. The big data part is too high level though.

“Fixed mind-set individuals dread any sort of failure because to them it’s a negative reflection on their abilities, which are immutable. Because of this, they devote a lot of effort to trying to look smart and avoiding looking stupid—they won’t engage in situations where they can fail, especially publicly.” 0 likes
