The Think Big Manifesto: Think You Can't Change Your Life (and the World)? Think Again

 

Every year, millions of people fall victim to a debilitating disease—a disease that cripples careers, destroys relationships, and undermines the health and happiness of the entire world. This disease is responsible for poverty, crime, war, natural disasters, and our economic ills. It has had no name until now—it's called small thinking. Its hallmarks are a failure of imagination and a disbelief in human possibility. 

 

In The Think Big Manifesto, Michael Port calls you, and the world, to action by offering a simple solution to a serious syndrome. Think big, commit to quantum change, envision your future, climb your mountains, and incite the revolution our society needs—if it is to survive. 

 

But it takes a personal revolution to stop accepting what is and start energetically creating what is possible. You can't wait until later to do big things. It's up to you to achieve your dreams, to head in the right direction, and to keep your focus. If you think you've waited too long, that there's no point anyway, or that it's too late—that's just small thinking. 

 

But even the most talented and self-confident among us often forget to think big. It's not always easy to do. That's why The Think Big Manifesto is not your average motivational guide. In these pages are ten fundamental principles for thinking big and a personal code of conduct for changing the way you approach the world—today. The time has come. Port urges you not to sit back, hesitate, or wait. He awakens your big-thinking self. He stirs the contagious, catalytic power of once dormant big thoughts that are now ready to be released. He asks you to look inward, outward, and upward—to think bigger about who you are and what you offer the world. 

 

The Think Big Manifesto is about changing every aspect of your life—from the way you work to the way you relate to friends, family, and community. With real examples that inspire and inform—like the high school dropout who built a $100 million business or the hedge fund manager who became an organic dairy farmer—The Think Big Manifesto isn't only about thinking big in your career, but about your very place in the world. 

 

Are you ready to lead the change you wish to see in the world? Your Think Big Revolution starts right here, right now—with you.

Twitter Power: How to Dominate Your Market One Tweet at a Time

Do you know what Twitter is? You should—if you're in the business of promoting your business, that is. Twitter is a social media platform that lets users blast short messages, or "tweets," to members via the Twitter Web site, as well as cell phones, e-mail, IM, and even through Facebook. It's a great and effective way to keep people connected and up to date on what's going on in their social circle in real time.

But it's not just for staying in touch with friends. It's also a great way to publicize your business or organization. Presidential campaigns use it to keep supporters and volunteers up to date; activists use it to coordinate street protests; and the office of the Prime Minister uses it to keep Britons informed on politics. But most importantly, businesses are using it to interact with customers and other businesses in a whole new way.

Twitter Power shows you how to leverage the power of Twitter for instant business benefits—like reaching new markets and increasing sales. You can build a loyal customer following, expand your brand, and generate instant buzz when you integrate Twitter into your existing marketing strategies. The best businesses of today and tomorrow are using this high-tech, low-cost, and low-hassle technology to gain real advantages over their competitors.

Joel Comm, one of the world's leading social media and online marketing experts, covers every aspect of the Twitter phenomena. He explains what Twitter is and why it works; how to jump into the conversation and build a following; how to use it to build better teams and stronger brands; how to make Twitter your ultimate customer help desk; and how to use it to drive traffic to your Web site. Plus, Comm includes case studies of businesses that use Twitter successfully, giving you the examples and best practices you need to succeed.

Success in business is about staying connected—to colleagues, teams, and especially customers. Twitter offers a new, high-tech way to achieve that connectedness and build a better brand with a core of loyal, enthusiastic customers. If you want to learn to grow your business one tweet at a time, Twitter Power will show you how.

Free Prize Inside!: The Next Big Marketing Idea

 

Purple Cow was the #1 bestselling marketing book on Amazon in 2003. Now in Free Prize Inside, Seth Godin is back with practical advice on how to put Purple Cow thinking to work inside your organization (big or small, profit or non) to MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN. The next big marketing idea is a proven strategy for making your products or services so remarkable that they practically sell themselves. 

 

Purple Cow taught marketers the value of standing out from the herd, which is how companies like Krispy Kreme and JetBlue made it big. But it left readers hungry for more: How do you actually think up new Purple Cows? And how do you get them adopted by risk-averse Brown Cow companies? 

 

Free Prize Inside delivers those answers and much more. It’s a fun guide to doing innovative marketing that really works when the traditional approaches have all stopped working. Thirty years ago, the best way to sell something was to advertise it on television. But today’s consumers are cynical, and your product or service had better be more than just hype and clever advertising. Even better, it ought to come with a market-changing innovation—a free prize inside. 

 

You don’t have to spend a fortune to create something cool that virtually sells itself. Think of simple but powerful innovations like the Tupperware party, Flintstones vitamins, G.I. Joe (a doll just for boys), Lucille Roberts (a gym just for women), and frequent flier miles. Free Prize Inside will teach you how to create those kinds of blockbusters at your own company without a bunch of MBA-brainwashed marketers. You don’t have to be a genius—you just need curiosity, initiative, and a strategy for overcoming resistance when you champion your idea. 

 

We’re all marketers now, no matter what our job titles. With Godin’s help, we can find the free prize that will transform our companies. 

Purple Cow: Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable

You're either a Purple Cow or you're not. You're either remarkable or invisible. Make your choice. 

 

What do Starbucks and JetBlue and KrispyKreme and Apple and DutchBoy and Kensington and Zespri and Hard Candy have that you don't? How do they continue to confound critics and achieve spectacular growth, leaving behind former tried-and true brands to gasp their last? 

 

Face it, the checklist of tired 'P's marketers have used for decades to get their product noticed -Pricing, Promotion, Publicity, to name a few-aren't working anymore. There's an exceptionally important 'P' that has to be added to the list. It's Purple Cow. 

 

Cows, after you've seen one, or two, or ten, are boring. A Purple Cow, though...now that would be something. Purple Cow describes something phenomenal, something counterintuitive and exciting and flat out unbelievable. Every day, consumers come face to face with a lot of boring stuff-a lot of brown cows-but you can bet they won't forget a Purple Cow. And it's not a marketing function that you can slap on to your product or service. Purple Cow is inherent. It's built right in, or it's not there. Period. 

 

In Purple Cow, Seth Godin urges you to put a Purple Cow into everything you build, and everything you do, to create something truly noticeable. It's a manifesto for marketers.

The Day We Found the Universe

 

From one of our most acclaimed science writers: a dramatic narrative of the discovery of the true nature and startling size of the universe, delving back past the moment of revelation to trace the decades of work--by a select group of scientists--that made it possible.

 

On January 1, 1925, thity-five-year-old Edwin Hubble announced findings that ultimately established that our universe was a thousand trillion times larger than previously believed, filled with myriad galaxies like our own. It was a realization that reshaped how humans understood their place in the cosmos. Six years later, continuing research by Hubble and others forced Albert Einstein to renounce his own cosmic model and finally accept the astonishing fact that the universe was not immobile but instead expanding. The story of these interwoven discoveries includes battles of will, clever insights, and wrong turns made by the early investigators in this great twentieth-century pursuit, from the luminaries (Einstein, Hubble, Harlow Shapley) to the lesser known: Henrietta Leavitt, who discovered the means to measure the vast dimensions of the cosmos . . . Vesto Slipher, the first and unheralded discoverer of the universe’s expansion... Georges Lemaître, the Jesuit priest who correctly interpreted Einstein’s theories in relation to the universe... Milton Humason, who, with only an eighth-grade education, became a world-renowned expert on galaxy motions... and others.

 

Here is the watershed moment in our cosmic history, splendidly arising from the exceptional combination of human curiosity, intelligence, and enterprise.

Total Leadership: Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life

 

What if you could improve your performance in the areas that seem to be most at odds with each other—work and life beyond work—at the same time? Most of us assume it can’t be done. But contrary to the conventional wisdom, the different domains of our lives don’t have to compete in a zero-sum game. However, managing them takes real leadership skill.

 

Adapted from author Stew Friedman’s popular Wharton School course, Total Leadership will help you identify your core values—what’s fundamentally important to you—and make them come alive in your everyday actions at work, at home, in your community, and within yourself.  By improving these areas of life simultaneously, you’ll get more done with less stress.

 

Friedman’s approach has been pressure-tested by years of working with people at every level of experience, in companies large and small. His step-by-step instruction, engaging examples, and more than thirty hands-on tools will help you create sustainable change and achieve higher levels of performance in all parts of your life. Total Leadership offers a compelling new framework that enables you to:

 

• Be real: Act with authenticity by clarifying what’s important

• Be whole: Act with integrity by respecting the whole person

• Be innovative: Act with creativity by experimenting to find new solutions

 

Gain greater clarity of purpose, accomplish more at work, and feel more connected to the people and causes that matter most to you. Leadership can—and indeed must—be learned. But first you’ve got to choose to lead. If you’re going to make a difference, thinking of yourself as a leader will make it more likely that your legacy—not your fantasy, but the real impact of your life, today and in the long run—is the one you really want.


It's Not About the Money

Follow the path to prosperity, which is offered along with guidance for achieving harmony in both professional and personal spheres. Proctor offers strategies to overcome destructive thinking patterns and to sustain the flow of wealth while channeling it constructively.

Profiles of individuals who pursued their passion rather than profit, and subsequently reaped immense rewards, will inspire all who seek to transform their lives.

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

 

Mindset is one of those rare audio books that can help you make positive changes in your life and at the same time see the world in a new way.

 

A leading expert in motivation and personality psychology, Carol Dweck has discovered in more than twenty years of research that our mindset is not a minor personality quirk: it creates our whole mental world. It explains how we become optimistic or pessimistic. It shapes our goals, our attitude toward work and relationships, and how we raise our kids, ultimately predicting whether or not we will fulfill our potential. Dweck has found that everyone has one of two basic mindsets.

 

If you have the fixed mindset, you believe that your talents and abilities are set in stone–either you have them or you don’t. You must prove yourself over and over, trying to look smart and talented at all costs. This is the path of stagnation. If you have a growth mindset, however, you know that talents can be developed and that great abilities are built over time. This is the path of opportunity–and success.

 

Dweck demonstrates that mindset unfolds in childhood and adulthood and drives every aspect of our lives, from work to sports, from relationships to parenting. She reveals how creative geniuses in all fields–music, literature, science, sports, business–apply the growth mindset to achieve results. Perhaps even more important, she shows us how we can change our mindset at any stage of life to achieve true success and fulfillment. She looks across a broad range of applications and helps parents, teachers, coaches, and executives see how they can promote the growth mindset. 

 

Highly engaging and very practical, Mindset breaks new ground as it leads you to change how you feel about yourself and your future.


 

 

 

 

Amerika: The Missing Person: A New Translation by Mark Harman Based on the Restored Text

 

A Brilliant new translation of the great writer’s least Kafkaesque novel, based on a German-language text that was produced by a team of international scholars and that is more faithful to Kafka’s original manuscript than anything we have had before.

 

With the same expert balance of precision and nuance that marked his translation of Kafka’s The Castle, the award-winning translator Mark Harman now restores the humor and particularity of language to Amerika. Here is the story of seventeen-year-old Karl Rossman, who, following a scandal involving a housemaid, is banished by his parents to America. With unquenchable optimism and in the company of two comic-sinister companions, he throws himself into misadventure after misadventure, eventually landing in Oklahoma, where a career in the theater beckons.

 

Like much of Kafka’s work, Amerika remained unfinished at the time of his death. Though we can never know how Kafka planned to end the novel, Mark Harman’s superb translation allows us to appreciate as closely as possible, what Kafka did commit to the page. 


In the Land of Difficult People

Whether you’re dealing with a hostile boss, an untrustworthy coworker, or a poorly communicating client, you’ll find the solutions you need resonating throughout these timeless tales.

Maimonides: The Life and World of One of Civilization's Greatest Minds

 

The first definitive biography of Moses Maimonides, one of the most influential intellects in all of human history, illuminates his life as a philosopher, physician, and lawgiver. Recalling such bestsellers as David McCullough’s John Adams and Walter Isaacson’s Einstein, MAIMONIDES is a biography on a grand scale, brilliantly explicating one man’s life against the background of his time.

 

As a physician, Maimonides is associated with Hippocrates as a founder of modern medicine; his influence in philosophy is equal to that of Plato, Aristotle, Spinoza, and Kant; in religion, he is as significant as Moses, Martin Luther, and Saint Augustine; and as a lawgiver, he has been recognized by the United States Congress as one of the greatest alongside Hammurabi and Thomas Jefferson. Now, in a dazzling work of scholarship, Joel Kraemer tells the complete story of Maimonides’s rich life. 

Maimonides is at once a portrait of a great historical figure and an excursion into the Mediterranean world of the twelfth century. Joel Kraemer draws on a wealth of original sources to re-create a remarkable period in history when Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions clashed and mingled in a setting alive with intense intellectual exchange and religious conflict. Born in Muslim-ruled Spain in 1135, Moses Maimonides was deeply conversant with Arabic philosophy and literature. By the time he was thirty, he was known for his seminal works on the Jewish practices and law. In Egypt, his training as a physician earned him a place in the entourage of the great Sultan Saladin, and his books earned him respect and influenced generations of Christian, Muslim and Jewish thinkers.

In Making Your Dreams Come True, Marcia Wieder teaches you a concrete formula to overcome whatever is standing between you and your dream—mostly your own self-limiting beliefs—and to rediscover the passion that may have been hidden for years.

In 1993, she left her successful East Coast media business and moved to San Francisco, the city of her dreams. Six years later, with a thriving International business as a motivational speaker, she’s a shining example of what is possible when you follow that inner passion. 

 

With Marcia as your personal coach, you too will learn step-by-step how to define and manifest your dreams. But according to Marcia, you must first examine your attitudes and beliefs to see whether or not they empower or impede you. Learning how to get your own beliefs on your side is just one of the specific strategies of her plan. Throughout the audio, Marcia also provides a wealth of helpful advice—from how to look at your life from a genuinely fresh perspective to designing an environment both physically and emotionally that will support your dream. You will also discover the “Passion Pyramid,” a useful tool that reveals how passion helps you accomplish your dreams more quickly. 

 

Filled with stories of real people and practical exercises, Making Your Dreams Come True delivers on its promise: When you’ve finished, you will know how to make your dreams come true—any time you choose.

Beyond Anger: A Guide for Men: How to Free Yourself from the Grip of Anger

 

It's not a new idea that men tend to express their anger differently than women do. Years of research have shown that men-for many different and complex reasons-are often more violent and less willing to confront and deal with their emotions than women. Now Beyond Anger shows the angry-and miserable-man how to change his life and relationships for the better. 

Dr. Thomas J. Harbin helps men understand their anger by explaining what the specific symptoms of chronic anger are and by showing angry men how their actions negatively affect family, friends and co-workers. He offers simple exercises-developed especially for men-that will help men to control their violent feelings, identify when and why they get angry, and to form new habits to prevent anger before it starts. Women, too, will learn essential strategies for understanding and helping the angry men in their lives. 

 

Beyond Anger is: * Honest. Thomas J. Harbin has had to come to terms with his own anger problems, so he understands exactly what angry men are going through.

* Tough. The book doesn't let anyone off the hook. It demands that angry men learn to take charge, stop making excuses, and get their anger under control.

* Real. The book includes the stories of angry men who have learned to recognize their problems and use the book's techniques successfully.

 

 

Free of fancy doctor talk and complicated theories, Beyond Anger talks to men in everyday language and provides a wealth of important resources. It is an invaluable guide for the many men struggling to come to terms with their inner battles and to take positive action, and for everyone who has an angry man in their life

Beyond the Secret: Spiritual Power and the Law of Attraction

 

Since the publication of The Secret, everyone seems to be talking about the Law of Attraction. In the popular imagination, everything we desire can be ours. But the Law of Attraction is more than the power of positive thinking or a plan to get rich quick. In Beyond the Secret, Lisa Love teaches us how to use the Law of Attraction spiritually. Instead of focusing on the selfishness and greed in human nature that leads us to want, want, want, Love inspires her readers to see beyond the individual ego and to attract and retain objects and events that will be beneficial to ourselves and to others. 

 

Lisa Love makes the Law of Attraction accessible to everyone, revealing essential insights on how to discover true and lasting life satisfaction.

Beyond the Secret teaches you to:

• Understand what Spirit wants for you in this life

• Use the Law of Attraction to gain insight into yourself and your destiny

• Create and maintain a deeply satisfying sense of spiritual fulfillment

 

Not everyone can use the Law of Attraction to win the lottery or to become the next American Idol, but everyone can use the Law of Attraction to become a happier and better person.

Capital Ideas Evolving

 

In all of history and in all fields of intellectual endeavor, a tension has existed between theory and practice. Those who earn a living in the real world seldom want to appear as slaves to some set of abstract ideas. It was no surprise, therefore, that the word “baloney” was Wall Street’s greeting to the pioneering theories of finance developed by a small group of academics from 1954-1972. Yet those breakthrough theories would in time earn five Nobel Prizes in Economic Science. Baloney they were not.

 

Bernstein, today’s foremost financial historian expands here upon his groundbreaking book of 1992, Capital Ideas: The Improbable Origins of Modern Wall Street, to recount how these financial theories finally migrated from towers of ivory to towers of glass on Wall Street and other financial centers around the world. The result has been a global revolution in the nature of financial markets, the menu of investment strategies, the development of exotic financial instruments, and the role of an uncertain future in all investment decisions. Even the academics who originally developed these theories are active today in the markets and in the creation of new financial structures and strategies. 

 

Based on personal interviews with leading practitioners and theorists, this audio describes how today’s key practical applications developed from the core ideas of finance theory into the new and exciting formats of the investment process found in today’s environment. This engaging and insightful audio book brings to life the individuals, ideas and issues that are transforming the financial landscape. 


Chain of Blame: How Wall Street Caused the Mortgage and Credit Crisis

 

THE TRUTH BEHIND AMERICA’S HOUSING ANG MORTGAGE CRISIS

In the summer of 2007, the subprime empire that Wall Street had built all came crashing down. On average, fifty lenders a month were going bust-and the people responsible for the crisis included not just unregulated loan brokers and con artists, but also investment bankers and home loan institutions traditionally perceived as completely trustworthy. 

Chain of Blame chronicles this incredible disaster, with a specific focus on the players who participated in such a fundamentally flawed fiasco. Acclaimed financial reporters Muolo and Padilla go behind the headlines to expose the truth about how this crisis occurred, what individuals and institutions-from lenders and brokers to some of the biggest investment banks in the world-were doing during this critical time, who is ultimately responsible for what happened, and perhaps more importantly, why everyone was so taken by surprise. The authors reveal how human behavior and greed drove the demand, supply, and the investor appetite for these types of loans—and how Wall Street was all too willing to satisfy the desires of those who should have known better. 


In Search of the Obvious: The Antidote for Today\'s Marketing Mess

The search for any marketing strategy is the search for the obvious.

In this audio book, marketing guru, Jack Trout clears up the confusion that surrounds the marketing profession. Instead of focusing on segmentation or customer retention or search engine optimization or data mining, marketers should be searching for that simple, obvious differentiating idea. Marketers not looking for the obvious had better have a very low price. 

To bring these principles for finding the obvious to life, Trout finds obvious solutions to today’s troubles for the likes of GM, Coke, Wal-Mart, newspapers, and the bewildering beer business. The fundamental problem is that professional marketers overlook the most obvious and effective ideas entirely, in an attempt to be clever or creative. But if an idea is obvious to you, it will be obvious to your consumer—which is why it will work.

Price of Prosperity: A Realistic Appraisal of the Future of Our National Economy

 

One of the foremost financial writers of his generation, Peter Bernstein has the unique ability to synthesize intellectual history and economics with the theory and practice of investment management. Now, with classic titles such as Economist on Wall Street, A Primer on Money, Banking, and Gold, and The Price of Prosperity—which have forewords by financial luminaries and new introductions by the author—you can enjoy some of the best of Bernstein in his earlier Wall Street days.

 

First published in 1962, The Price of Prosperity speaks to today’s uncertainties as clearly as to those of the past. With chapters like “The Burden of Government” and “The Economics of Democracy,” Bernstein probes the future of an economy during rapidly changing times and the appropriate role of government in determining the ultimate outcome.

 

The questions have not changed over time, but Bernstein’s answers help us understand these issues from today’s perspective. How much government control is too much control? How much can government spend? How can government influence the level of unemployment?

 

As Bernstein shows how to navigate an ever-changing economic landscape, his timeless insights throughout this audio book make The Price of Prosperity as vital and important today as when it appeared in an environment fundamentally different from our own.
