A young woman walks into a laboratory. Over the past two years, she has transformed almost every aspect of her life. She has quit smoking, run a marathon, and been promoted at work. The patterns inside her brain, neurologists discover, have fundamentally changed. Marketers at Procter & Gamble study videos of people making their beds. They are desperately trying to figure out how to sell a new product called Febreze, on track to be one of the biggest flops in company history. Suddenly, one of them detects a nearly imperceptible pattern--and with a slight shift in advertising, Febreze goes on to earn a billion dollars a year. An untested CEO takes over one of the largest companies in America. His first order of business is attacking a single pattern among his employees--how they approach worker safety--and soon the firm, Alcoa, becomes the top performer in the Dow Jones.

The unforgettable, unknown history of colors and the vivid stories behind them in a beautiful multi-colored volume The Secret Lives of Color tells the unusual stories of seventy-five fascinating shades, dyes and hues. From blonde to ginger, the brown that changed the way battles were fought to the white that protected against the plague, Picasso's blue period to the charcoal on the cave walls at Lascaux, acid yellow to kelly green, and from scarlet women to imperial purple, these surprising stories run like a bright thread throughout history. In this book, Kassia St. Clair has turned her lifelong obsession with colors and where they come from (whether Van Gogh's chrome yellow sunflowers or punk's fluorescent pink) into a unique study of human civilization. Across fashion and politics, art and war, the secret lives of color tell the vivid story of our culture. “A mind-expanding tour of the world without leaving your paintbox. Every color has a story, and here are some of the most alluring, alarming, and thought-provoking.” —Simon Garfield, author of Just My Type

The Secret Power of Middle Children

This myth-busting book shows how "forgotten" middle children can-and do-rule the world. In this counterintuitive book, psychologist Catherine Salmon and journalist Katrin Schumann combine science, history, and real-life stories to reveal for the first time that our perception of middle children is dead wrong. Using unpublished and little-known research from evolutionary psychology, sociology, and communications, The Secret Power of Middle Children illustrates how adaptive strategies middleborns develop during childhood translate into stronger friendships, lasting marriages, successful careers, and effective parenting. Over seventy million adult Americans are middle children, and forty percent of young American families have middle children. With constructive advice on how to maximize the benefits and avoid the pitfalls of being a middle child, Salmon and Schumann help middle children at any age (and their parents) use birth order as a strategy for success.

Anthony William, the Medical Medium, has helped tens of thousands of people heal from ailments that have been misdiagnosed or ineffectively treated —or that medical communities can’t resolve. And he’s done it all by listening to a divine voice that literally speaks into his ear, telling him what is at the root of people’s pain or illness and what they need to do to be restored to health.In his first book, the New York Times bestseller Medical Medium, Anthony revealed how to treat dozens of illnesses with targeted healing regimens in which nutrition played a major role. Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods delves deeper into the healing power of over 50 fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, and wild foods that can have an extraordinary effect on health. Anthony explains each food —s properties, the symptoms and conditions it can help relieve or heal, and the emotional and spiritual benefits it brings. And for each food, he offers a delicious recipe to help you enjoy its maximum benefit, from sweet potatoes with braised cabbage stuffing to honey-coconut ice cream and chewy apricot bars. You’ll discover: • Why wild blueberries are the “resurrection food,” asparagus is the fountain of youth, and lemons can lift your spirits when you’ve had bad news • The best foods to eat if you have gallstones, hypertension, brain fog, thyroid issues, or migraines —plus hundreds more symptoms and conditions that may be holding you back • The particular healing powers of kiwis, cucumbers, cat’s claw, coconut, and much more • Insight into cravings, how to use stress to your advantage, and the key role fruit plays in fertility Much of Anthony’s information is dramatically different from the conventional wisdom of medical communities, and much of it has never appeared anywhere before. So don’t expect to hear the same old food facts rehashed here. Instead, expect to get a whole new understanding of why oranges offer more than just vitamin C —and a powerful set of tools for healing from illness and keeping yourself and your loved ones safe and well.

1856. Eighteen-year-old chemistry student William Perkin's experiment has gone horribly wrong. But the deep brown sludge his botched project has produced has an unexpected power: the power to dye everything it touches a brilliant purple. Perkin has discovered mauve, the world's first synthetic dye, bridging a gap between pure chemistry and industry which will change the world forever. From the fetching ribbons soon tying back the hair on every fashionable head in London, to the laboratories in which scientists first scrutinized the human chromosome under the microscope, leading all the way to the development of modern vaccines against cancer and malaria, Simon Garfield's landmark work swirls together science and social history to tell the story of how one colour became a sensation.

Introduction Easy to understand, deep and profound, Phuong has completely made readers infatuated with his book Secret Power – it is about a type of power which could disseminate profoundly and form powerful thought, opinion or knowledge which in turn can be used to shape the attitude and influence the emotion of the crowd, thus directing the crowd’s behavior according to the will of the user. Phuong also shows us quite a few things about dark PR techniques (Dark Art) in business which are being used to manipulate and to mislead public opinion as well as to eliminate enemies, to help us identify and protect ourselves, thus enhancing our ability to control the society. How to apply the secret power to shape the attitude and to influence the emotion of the crowd will be presented in detail in this book along with many practical examples to help you have an easier time understanding and applying it. One notable thing about the Secret Power is that it contains power of the modern doctrine of PR - a very new approach of PR to the age-old business problems (sales, building and protecting company's reputation). The modern doctrine of PR is more comprehensive than the PR concepts in the past because it contains both value of professional knowledge and value of social contribution. Regarding the value of social contribution, the modern PR doctrine publicizes techniques which can help people perceive PR correctly and make it become more popular to the public. In terms of the value of professional knowledge, the modern PR doctrine shows us how to apply the power of 5 Supreme Arts to help enterprises achieve their goals as well as a sustainable development. As containing in it both the value of professional knowledge and the value of social contribution, this book is considered to be one of the remarkable efforts to bring the PR industry back to its roots and its original mission which is contributing to the building of a healthy information society and a transparent business environment, thus enhancing the society.

As a boy in Brooklyn's Red Hook projects, James McBride knew his mother was different. But when he asked about it, she'd simply say 'I'm light-skinned.' Later he wondered if he was different too, and asked his mother if he was black or white. 'You're a human being,' she snapped. 'Educate yourself or you'll be a nobody!' And when James asked what colour God was, she said 'God is the colour of water.' As an adult, McBride finally persuaded his mother to tell her story - the story of a rabbi's daughter, born in Poland and raised in the South, who fled to Harlem, married a black man, founded a Baptist church, and put twelve children through college.

What really sets the best managers above the rest? It’s their power to build a cadre of employees who have great inner work lives—consistently positive emotions; strong motivation; and favorable perceptions of the organization, their work, and their colleagues. The worst managers undermine inner work life, often unwittingly. As Teresa Amabile and Steven Kramer explain in The Progress Principle, seemingly mundane workday events can make or break employees’ inner work lives. But it’s forward momentum in meaningful work—progress—that creates the best inner work lives. Through rigorous analysis of nearly 12,000 diary entries provided by 238 employees in 7 companies, the authors explain how managers can foster progress and enhance inner work life every day. The book shows how to remove obstacles to progress, including meaningless tasks and toxic relationships. It also explains how to activate two forces that enable progress: (1) catalysts—events that directly facilitate project work, such as clear goals and autonomy—and (2) nourishers—interpersonal events that uplift workers, including encouragement and demonstrations of respect and collegiality. Brimming with honest examples from the companies studied, The Progress Principle equips aspiring and seasoned leaders alike with the insights they need to maximize their people’s performance.
