    The Kelton Study of Fascination To understand why we become fascinated, and how we fascinate others, we’ll delve into the results from the first in-depth national marketing survey of fascination. Developed and executed specifically for this book, the Kelton Study of Fascination examined more than a thousand people around the United States from a broad range of ages, industries, and professional levels.
