Siemon Scamell-Katz founded a market research agency in the early 1990s, which specialised in shopper behaviour, and which he then sold to TNS (part of the WPP Group) in 2007. Today, he is one of the world’s top 3 experts in consumer behaviour and lectures and consults globally.


Most of us think we know how we shop and why we shop. So do manufacturers and retailers. This fascinating book, the fruit of 20 yearsʼ close observation and in-depth research, reveals how little we really know. Intriguing for shoppers themselves – and invaluable for all connected with the retail trade.

Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO, WPP

Scamell-Katz has turned the art of predicting shopper behaviour into a science. Entertaining and packed full of insights arising from numerous case studies, the book describes easy to implement in-store strategies that will benefit retailers and shoppers worldwide.
