'Will turn your world upside down in the best possible way. Fun, profound and bursting with important insights' TIM HARFORD

'Anyone working to rebuild a more equal world will benefit from Tett's well-argued case that to solve twenty-first-century problems, we must expand our fields of vision and fill in old blind spots with new empathy.' MELINDA GATES

A revelatory model that explains how we buy, sell, work and live.


For over a century, anthropologists have immersed themselves in unfamiliar cultures, uncovering the hidden rituals that govern how people act. Now, a new generation of anthropologists are using these methods in a different context - to illuminate the behaviour of businesses and consumers around the globe.

In Anthro-Vision, Gillian Tett - bestselling author, Financial Times journalist, and anthropology PhD - reveals how anthropology can make sense of the corporate world. She outlines how anthropology helps explain consumer behaviour - revealing the 'webs of meaning' that underpin our shopping habits, and unpicking the subtle cultural shifts driving the rise of green business. She explores how anthropology can shed light on the workplace, identifying the hidden tribes within the office, and pinpointing which rituals are binding together a team. And she shows how we can all use anthropology in our own lives, too: helping us make better decisions, navigate risk - even work out what our peers are really thinking.

Along the way, Tett draws on stories from Tajik villages and Amazon warehouses, Japanese classrooms and Wall Street trading floors, all to reveal the power of anthropology in action.

The result is a wholly new way to understand human behaviour. In a short-sighted world, we can all learn to see clearly - using the power of Anthro-Vision.

'Tett provides readers with a new intellectual framework - grounded in her deep understanding of anthropology and her path-breaking journalism- that can fundamentally transform how we approach solving society's most wicked problems . . . I cannot recommend it highly enough.' MARIANA MAZZUCATO

'A fascinating and compelling demonstration that all of us, especially economists, can benefit from the insights of anthropology: the worm's-eye not just the bird's-eye view of how people behave.' MERVYN KING
