Summary:

Mark Penn argues that the biggest trends in America are the Microtrends, the smaller trends that go unnoticed or ignored. One million people can create new market for a business, spark a social movement, or effect political change. In 1996, a microtrend identified by Penn ('soccer moms') was crucial in re-electing President Clinton. With years of experience as one of world's most highly regarded pollsters, Penn identifies the new microtrends sweeping the world:

SINGLE WOMEN BY CHOICE: Women aren't waiting for Mr. Right. They are raising children by themselves and buying their own homes.
SPLITTERS: A growing number of middle-class residents are shuttling between two homes, creating new communities and dynamics in the real estate market.
SUN HATERS: Environmentalists, skin cancer survivors, and parents concerned about the sun's impact on our health.
PHILO-SEMITES: A growing number of people want to date Jewish men and women.
CLASSICAL MUSIC DADS: Older men who are fathers in their 40's and 50's and taking on a larger role in the nurturing of their children and becoming an important factor in consumer culture for kids.
MICROTRENDS highlights everything from religion to politics, from leisure pursuits to relationships and will take the listener into the worlds of polling, targeting, and psychographic analysis, reaching tantalizing conclusions through engaging analysis.

    This audiobook was really interesting even though the trends discussed are almost outdated. Nevertheless, it gives you tons of examples of what micro-trends have been occurring in the past decade. The book's goal is to teach you that the micro-trends are a force to be reckoned with.
