What Makes an Idea Go Viral?

Harvard professor Daniel Gilbert said,

"Jonah Berger, author of the book, Contagious, knows more about what makes information 'go viral' than anyone in the world."

Berger will be my guest on Work with Marty Nemko on Sunday, Mar. 31. As usual, I'll also do 3-Minute Workovers on callers. Have a work-related woe? I'll try to help. The price is certainly right: zero.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM, San Francisco.
