Anyone read (or reading) What Customers Want?  Book club anyone?

This is one of  the most insightful books I've read in a while.
Might be fun to do it as virtual book club.

What Customers Want
Talks about the difficulties of knowing what they want. THEY don't know what they want, but they do know their PAIN.
So if you ask "what do you want" they might say "a faster horse".
But if you ask them their pain they might say "stopping to feed the horse, throwing a shoe, speed".
