Empathetic Marketing

He went clubbing —book clubbing. ... After accepting friends' requests to discuss his novel for their book clubs, Shors saw his opening.

People's emotions and resulting behaviors are the foundation for satisfying vital psychological needs. Needs are at the root of our triumphs and setbacks in our personal lives and affect many of the decisions that fuel the economy. But most marketers, researchers, product designers, advertisers and executives do not fully consider needs, and end up using emotion in ways that may be misguided and shortsighted. The central premise of this book is that with a revised understanding of the science and philosophy behind human needs, businesses will be better equipped to provide long-term satisfaction for their customers, as well as grow their bottom lines. Mark uncovers a framework that will help businesses both identify human needs and incorporate this perspective into strategy, and then focuses each chapter on a specific vital emotional need: Self-expression, Belonging, Recognition, Control, Care and Growth. In short, understanding how human needs manifest in the marketplace require businesses to learn from the perspectives of sociology, ethnography and psychology - neurological, behavioral, clinical and psychodynamic - blended together with traditional consumer insights make a bold case for a needs-based paradigm shift in the business community.

When supper—clubbing at the Ced—Rel, take a close look at the pictures behind the bar. The rustic images form a string of memories.

The supper club of the Upper Midwest is unmistakably authentic, as unique to the region as great lakes, cheese curds, and Curly Lambeau. The far-flung locations and creative decor give each supper club a unique ambience, but the owners, staff, and regulars give it its personality. Author Dave Hoekstra traveled through farmland, woods, towns, and cities in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, and Illinois, eating at salad bars, drinking old fashioneds, and most of all talking to old-timers, local historians, and newcomers. He discovered that far from going the way of so many small establishments, supper clubs are evolving, combining contemporary ideas such as locavore menus and craft beer with traditional Friday night fish fries and Saturday prime rib. He brings to life the memorable people who have created and continue the tradition, from the blind dishwasher at Smoky’s to the Dick Watson Combo playing “Beyond the Sea” at the Lighthouse and the entrepreneurs and hipster crowd behind the Old Fashioned. Corporations have defined mainstream eating habits in America, but characters define supper clubs, and this combination oral history and guide, with more than one hundred photographs, celebrates not only the past and present but the future of the supper club.

The first consolidated textbook explaining the mechanism of clinical signs commonly seen in medicine. Mechanisms of Clinical Signs is the first consolidated text of its kind; designed to help medical students and junior doctors understand the pathophysiological mechanisms behind clinical signs. Unlike existing clinical examination textbooks which are predominantly organised by disease systems and states, Mechanisms of Clinical Signs is arranged by body system; bridging the gap between identifying clinical signs and understanding the causes behind them. Presented in a useful handbook style, Mechanisms of Clinical Signs discusses the evidence base and clinical value of each clinical sign to assist with interpretation. Examples are plentiful and include such signs as distinctive tremors in a Parkinson’s disease patient and red hands on a patient with liver disease. As well as being an easy-to-follow reference for clinical signs seen on the ward, Mechanisms of Clinical Signs is an excellent study aid – particularly useful for those preparing for ‘Viva’ or ‘OSCE’ practical stations. The ability to accurately identify and interpret clinical signs of disease upon examination is a vital first step in correct diagnosis and treatment. Mechanisms of Clinical Signs is therefore an essential textbook for medical students and new practitioners. Online StudentConsult resources accompany Mechanisms of Clinical Signs upon purchase. • first consolidated text explaining the mechanism of clinical signs commonly seen in medicine • easy reference guide for clinical signs seen on the ward or during examinations • a resource for those preparing for “Viva” or “OSCE” practical stations where students see patients and are asked specific questions relating to the clinical examination • organised by body system it reviews the common clinical signs seen in diseases by the main system or specialty of medicine in a convenient handbook style • each chapter contains all the clinical signs, a description of the sign, the disease/s in which the sign appears and an explanation as to the mechanism • evidence base and clinical value of the sign is discussed to assist interpretation • Online Student Consult resources accompany the text

Surgical diagnoses are often made on the basis of clinical assessment alone and thus achieving competence in clinical skills remains imperative to good practice in surgery. This book of over 140 cases is designed for candidates preparing for all surgical examinations, whether at undergraduate, postgraduate or exit examination level. It will demystify and simplify the clinical assessment of surgical cases and provides invaluable advice on how to achieve success.

All the cases are graded in terms of likely appearance in the examinations. Top tips emphasize specific subjects which often cause confusion. The text includes both commonly asked and advanced questions relating to each case. Examples of the common procedures and props that come up in the skill-based examination format are included. This fully revised Third Edition now includes 175 photographs of clinical cases and signs as well as key manoeuvres performed during specific surgical examination routines.
