Why do people talk about certain products and ideas more than others? Why are some stories and rumors more infectious? And what makes online content go viral?

Find out from Jonah Berger, Wharton professor & author of Contagious: Why Things Catch On, who has become one of the world’s foremost experts on what goes viral and why. It’s easy to find examples of products or ideas that have spread and become popular, but as he writes, “It’s much harder to actually get something to catch on. Even with all the money poured into marketing and advertising, few products become popular.” His new book tries to answer why some products, ideas, and behaviors succeed when others fail.

*All tickets include a copy of Berger’s book
