Book Description :

Called “everything a war memoir could possibly be” by The New York Times, this all-time classic of the military memoir genre now includes a new forward from bestselling author and retired Navy SEAL Jocko Willink. Whether he was fifteen years old or forty, David Hackworth devoted his life to the US Army and quickly became a living legend. However, he appeared on TV in 1971 to decry the doomed war effort in Vietnam. From Korea to Berlin and the Cuban missile crisis to Vietnam, Hackworth’s story is that of an exemplary patriot, played against the backdrop of the changing fortunes of America and the US military. This memoir is the stunning indictment of the Pentagon’s fundamental misunderstanding of the Vietnam conflict and of the bureaucracy of self-interest that fueled the war. With About Face, Hackworth has written what many Vietnam veterans have called the most important book of their generation and presents a vivid and powerful portrait of patriotism.

Book Description :

Honorable Mention in the category of Psychology in the Professional/Scholarly Publishing Annual Awards Competition presented by the Association of American Publishers, Inc. What is special about the face, and what happens when neurological conditions make expression or comprehension of the face unavailable? Through a mix of science, autobiography, case studies, and speculation, Jonathan Cole shows the importance not only of facial expressions for communication among individuals but also of facial embodiment for our sense of self. He presents, in his words, "a natural history of the face and an unnatural history of those who live without it." The heart of the book lies in the experiences of people with facial losses of various kinds. The case studies are of blind, autistic, and neurologically impaired persons; the most extreme case involves Mobius syndrome, in which individuals are born with a total inability to move their facial muscles and hence to make facial expressions. Cole suggests that it is only by studying such personal narratives of loss that we can understand facial function and something of what all our faces reflect.

Book Description :

Once advertising was all about being 'on-message' and getting talking points right. But breakthroughs in brain science have confirmed what we all know but don't often admit to in business: people are primarily emotional decision-makers. From podcasting, blogs and forums to interactive ads in stations, the heart of the matter is now the consumer's experience as opposed to the company's marketing message. About Face shows how 21st century advertising can realize success by being 'on-emotion' first and foremost. Using data from eye tracking and facial coding to analyse consumer responses, About Face demonstrates exactly which advertising strategies are successful and why. Moving beyond the old Ps of product, price, place and promotion, Dan Hill outlines ten rules for emotionally effective advertising including simplicity, familiarity, relevancy and believability. Emotions rule decision making. About Face shows you that by focussing on the three new Ps of passion, purpose and personality, your campaigns can become more effective and emotionally engaging, taking you closer to the consumer.

Book Description :

Gene therapy that can stop skin from aging is a breakthrough technology, but before it can lead to eternal youth it leads to murder. In the second book in Chronicle's exciting new Bill Damen mystery series, the filmmaker-turned-detective's investigations again draw him into the dark side of high-stakes science and finance. The players include an executive escort service with a hidden agenda, a biotech company on the verge of either fortune or collapse, and venture capitalists with shady backers. Juggling old and new girlfriends and a car that still won't start, relying on his eye for the telling detail and instinct for danger, Bill must unravel both a double helix and a double identity to solve this murder.

From the runways of Paris to the casting controversies over BMiss Saigon, from a local demonstration at the Claremont Colleges in California to the gender-blending of BM. Butterfly, BAbout Face examines representations of Asia and their reverberations in both Asia and Asian American lives. Japanese high fashion and Asian American theater become points of entry into the politics of pleasure, the performance of racial identities, and the possibility of political intervention in commodity capitalism. Based on Kondo's fieldwork, this interdisciplinary work brings together essays, interviews with designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons and playwright David Henry Hwang, and "personal" vignettes in its exploration of counter-Orientalisms.

Book Description :

"For Thais, face is a fact," writes Flanders. However, "whether in theology, evangelism, or issues involving sin, salvation, or atonement, Thai Christians and missionaries alike seem either uninterested in or possibly incapable of addressing issues related to face. This glaring incongruity between the value of face for Thais and the lack of intentional engagement within the Thai Christian community is deeply troubling. "Surely, such a lack of careful attention to face is a dangerous posture. Uncritical views of face, furtively attaching to the theology of the Thai church, are potentially detrimental for its life and mission. Such seems to be an unavoidable situation without proper attention to face. Additionally, to ignore face is to run the risk of missing valuable cultural resources, implicit in the Thai experience of face, for the critical task of authentic Thai theological reflection. "This lack of engagement with face raises critical issues with which we must wrestle. How is it that such a central sociocultural issue has not been a more significant part of the Thai Christian vocabulary or experience? How pervasive are these negative attitudes regarding face? What lies behind them? Might this lack of self-conscious engagement with face have any relationship to the persistent Thai perception of Christianity as a foreign, Western religion? How should Christians understand this notion of face and how it relates to the ways we understand and proclaim the gospel?"

Book Description :

The Politically Correct Christian church of the 21st century is impotent as an agent of change in our highly secular society. Lack of Basic Foundational Teaching leaves us ill-equipped to share our faith. Spiritual Warfare is destroying our marriages, our families and our personal faith walks. New Age Influences are being added daily to the teachings in our houses of worship. The body of Christ has become virtually indistinguishable from Secular Society. God's glory is missing from His churches. It is time for Change... change which brings us back to His Word, back to living a holy life as He commanded, and back to a place where we can be a positive influence in today's immoral world. Do you want basic foundational truths? Are you willing to commit to chasing hard after Jesus? If you are, then an "about face" is required. Vicki Renee Bryant is a passionate Bible teacher, Christian speaker and writer for Jesus Christ. She has a consuming love for the Word of God and a passion for those who wear the name of Christ to have that same hunger. She believes if Christians studied and applied Biblical truths they would influence the world for the cause of Christ. About Face! contains a wealth of foundational Christian truths, plus a strategy plan for implementation. For Such a Time as This... was Vicki's first published work. She and her husband Dan own His House, a Bible and gift store, in Owosso, Michigan.
