Book Description :

“It’s not the magic that makes it work; it’s the way we work that makes it magic.” The secret for creating “magic” in our careers, our organizations, and our lives is simple: outstanding leadership—the kind that inspires employees, delights customers, and achieves extraordinary business results. No one knows more about this kind of leadership than Lee Cockerell, the man who ran Walt Disney World® Resort operations for over a decade. And in Creating Magic, he shares the leadership principles that not only guided his own journey from a poor farm boy in Oklahoma to the head of operations for a multibillion dollar enterprise, but that also soon came to form the cultural bedrock of the world’s number one vacation destination. But as Lee demonstrates, great leadership isn’t about mastering impossibly complex management theories. We can all become outstanding leaders by following the ten practical, common sense strategies outlined in this remarkable book. As straightforward as they are profound, these leadership lessons include: Everyone is important. Make your people your brand. Burn the free fuel: appreciation, recognition, and encouragement. Give people a purpose, not just a job. Combining surprising business wisdom with insightful and entertaining stories from Lee’s four decades on the front lines of some of the world’s best-run companies, Creating Magic shows all of us – from small business owners to managers at every level – how to become better leaders by infusing quality, character, courage, enthusiasm, and integrity into our workplace and into our lives.

Book Description :

HOW DOES MAGIC HAPPEN? The Ogilvy advertising legend—“one of the leading minds in the world of branding” (NPR) and "the don of modern advertising" (Sunday Times)—explores the art and science of conjuring irresistible products and ideas. "Sutherland, the legendary Vice Chairman of Ogilvy, uses his decades of experience to dissect human spending behavior in an insanely entertaining way. Alchemy combines scientific research with hilarious stories and case studies of campaigns for AmEx, Microsoft and the like. This is a must-read." —Entrepreneur, A "Best Book of the Year" Why is Red Bull so popular, though everyone—everyone!—hates the taste? Humans are, in a word, irrational, basing decisions as much on subtle external signals (that little blue can) as on objective qualities (flavor, price, quality). The surrounding world, meanwhile, is irreducibly complex and random. This means future success can’t be projected on any accounting spreadsheet. To strike gold, you must master the dark art and curious science of conjuring irresistible ideas: alchemy. Based on thirty years of field work inside the largest experiment in human behavior ever conceived—the forever-unfolding pageant of consumer capitalism—Alchemy, the revolutionary book by Ogilvy advertising legend Rory Sutherland, whose TED talks have been viewed nearly seven million times, decodes human behavior, blending leading-edge scientific research, absurdly entertaining storytelling, deep psychological insight, and practical case studies from his storied career working on campaigns for AmEx, Microsoft, and others. Heralded as “one of the leading minds in the world of branding” by NPR and "the don of modern advertising" by The Times, Sutherland is a unique thought leader, as comfortable exchanging ideas with Nobel Prize winners Daniel Kahneman and Richard Thaler (both interviewed in these pages) as he is crafting the next product launch. His unconventional and relentlessly curious approach has led him to discover that the most compelling secrets to human decision-making can be found in surprising places: What can honey bees teach us about creating a sustainable business? How could budget airlines show us how to market a healthcare system? Why is it better to be vaguely right than precisely wrong? What might soccer penalty kicks teach us about the dangers of risk-aversion? Better “branding,” Sutherland reveals, can also be employed not just to sell products, but to promote a variety of social aims, like getting people to pay taxes, improving public health outcomes, or encouraging more women to pursue careers in tech. Equally startling and profound, Sutherland’s journey through the strange world of decision making is filled with astonishing lessons for all aspects of life and business.

Yes-again Anna! Here's another in the ongoing series of children's books-illustrated and designed by one of the world's top cut-paper artist-about this irrepressible little girl. Silly Anna! She's always creating some form of mischief, even when she's trying to do the right thing. With half-page gatefolds on every spread, watch Anna as she gets herself and her favorite stuffed bunny a little messy...and a lot wet! Out in the garden with Mommy, Anna wants a cookie. She grabs for it and stamps her feet and begs. No luck! What should she do to get one? Open the flap: Anna says "please, " and receives a nice, big, chocolate chip cookie. Now Bunny wants one too. What a mess--and it's up to Anna to clean him up. Kids will rush to turn the pages of this mixture of picture and novelry book, and see how Anna tries to wipe Bunny's face ( "very messy now!), wash him down (everybody's soaking!), and hug him better. An especially large and happy extended gatefold ends the book as Anna and her bunny dance in the bright sunshine. 24 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 9.

Book Description :

Business magic and disruptive innovation First comes the magic, and then the magic becomes the reality You may think you know what magic is. Abracadabra, hocus-pocus. Forget about it. Magic? Magic is what human beings do. It’s just that some do it a lot better than others. Business strategies from the world's greatest magicians: This book takes everything that three remarkable authors―a corporate strategist, the former acting director of the CIA, and a world-renowned magician―have learned about magic and packs it into a unique framework that captures the best of this art form and relates it directly to key lessons applicable to a wide variety of business enterprises. The authors’ objective is not to create a new generation of magicians, but to adapt nine strategies of the world’s greatest magicians and inspire boundless imagination, bolster innovation, energize leadership, and spark success in any business. At the core of Creating Business Magic is the belief that imagination can make magicians of us all. Magic and disruptive innovation: Each chapter opens with a scenario depicting a pivotal historic moment in magic―from Harry Houdini to Doug Henning to Penn and Teller to David Copperfield―and uses it as a starting point to explore how the magical technique employed can create a fertile environment for industry disruptive innovation and propel a company light years ahead of the competition. The nine disruptive strategies presented by the authors demonstrate how to: • Anticipate the next trends out of thin air • Create remarkable new products that wow customers • Launch marketing and advertising campaigns that will mesmerize “aspirationals” • Make dazzling sales presentations • Resolve seemingly unsolvable business dilemmas • Inspire teams with resilient change leadership in which the “status quo” is never acceptable and each year the organization incorporates new “tricks” into its act Business magic: Specifically designed for companies seeking to achieve the transformative, innovative results of the authors’ illustrious corporate and political clientele―GE, Apple, Coca-Cola, Disney, Microsoft, Google, NBC, five Nobel Prize winners, and even President Barack Obama―Creating Business Magic is both an authoritative business management book and a spectacular, entertaining read.

Book Description :

A huge success in both bookshops and cinemas, the Harry Potter-series has drawn millions of readers and viewers into its magical world. In constructing this world, however, J. K. Rowling has created Harry and his friends in sharp contrast to other members of the magical and non-magical world. Creating Magical Worlds: Otherness and Othering in Harry Potter argues that the identities of the heroes are mainly based on delimitation from and rivalry to other characters: the Slytherins and Deatheaters, foreign students from Durmstrang and Beauxbatons, magical races such as the house-elves and centaurs, Muggles and Squibs as well as, to a certain extent, girls and women. Apart from explaining the social psychological and psychoanalytical reasons behind this exclusion, Creating Magical Worlds also shows in how far this delimitation is necessary for the action and the plot of the series.

There is an archetype of a powerful magician who, in a dark robe, uses a colorful and powerful wand to direct magical energy and achieve goals. Now you can learn how to make the robe and wand, along with hundreds of other traditional magical items in Creating Magical Tools (a revised and expanded section of the previously published Secrets of a Golden Dawn Temple) by Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero, Senior Adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

That way you can choose which ones you would like to add to your magical practices.
