Sample Book Insights: #1 The first tweet of the war was sent on May 4, 2009. It was a promotion for Donald Trump’s TV show. Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube were just beginning to be used for socializing and sharing content, but they would soon be thrust into the center of civic life and global politics. #2 Through his Twitter account, Trump began posting about politics and drawing attention to himself. In the three years that followed, he would personally author some 15,000 tweets. #3 The Trump campaign was not just a marketing or political campaign, but also an information war fought by hundreds of millions of people across dozens of social media platforms. The participants ranged from politicians and celebrities to soldiers, criminals, and terrorists. #4 The Islamic State, also known as ISIS or Daesh in Arabic, launched a social media campaign in 2014 to promote their invasion of northern Iraq. They posted selfies of black-clad militants and Instagram images of convoys that looked like Mad Max come to life. Their demands for swift surrender were spread both regionally and personally, via the internet.

Sample Book Insights: #1 The music industry has changed dramatically over the past few decades, and so has the way musicians think about their careers. You must start thinking about your career from a more professional and businesslike perspective. #2 The marketing process typically starts with a vision, which is a declaration that defines your ultimate place in about seven to ten years down the road. Your vision is what gets you out of bed in the morning and gives your life meaning. #3 Now that you have your internal strengths, passion, and vision, it’s time to examine the external environment of your organization and see how your musical vision matches up with people’s wants and needs. By doing this, you can further refine your true musical purpose. #4 To identify your most likely fans, use any combination of factors that you believe are relevant and useful, such as age range, gender, geographic location, lifestyles, and behavioral characteristics. Once you win over your most likely fans with customized marketing messages, you can then target your next likely fans.

This book was released on 2022-03-25T22:59:00Z with total page 36 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Irrational exuberance is the psychological basis of a speculative bubble. I define a speculative bubble as a situation in which news of price increases spurs investor enthusiasm, which spreads by psychological contagion from person to person, and in the process, amplifies stories that justify the price increase. #2 The Dow Jones Industrial Average, a stock market index, peaked in January 2000 at 11,722. 98. The real (inflation-corrected) Dow did not reach this level again until 2014. #3 The stock market boom from 1982 to 2000, which I will call the Millennium Boom, was not justified in any reasonable terms. Basic economic indicators did not come close to tripling over that period, and corporate profits rose less than 60 percent. #4 The end of the 2000 boom brought stock markets down across much of the world by 2003, as can be seen in Figure 1. 2. The next boom, peaking in late 2007 or early 2008, had huge impacts over much of the world.

Sample Book Insights: #1 The media knew that a primary witness would be an FBI undercover agent who had infiltrated the Mafia. They were using every angle to try to find out who it really was. I had never given an interview, never allowed the press to photograph or film me. #2 I was in a whirlwind after I ended my undercover role. I was working with U. S. attorneys to seek indictments of Mafia members, and preparing for trials on racketeering, gambling, extortion, and murder in New York, Milwaukee, Tampa, and Kansas City. #3 I was testifying against Milwaukee Mafia boss Frank Balistrieri in August 1982 when a defense attorney asked where I and my family had lived while I was undercover. I didn’t answer the question, but the FBI moved my family anyway. #4 I was forty-three years old when the first of the cases went to trial. I had missed six years of normal life with my family. I had done the best job I could, and I was proud of that.

Sample Book Insights: #1 The Jewish migration to America began in the nineteenth century, and by the 1920s, there were four million Jews in the country. While some Jews’ lives were dominated by Old World religious practices, there were also teenaged boys who sought to avoid a life of shopkeeping or factory drudgery and instead pursue careers in crime. #2 The Jewish gangsters that the boys admired were not afraid of danger, and they were often the danger. They were not cowering behind a desk, they were wading into fights and tossing people on their ears into the street. #3 Jewish gangsters and their Italian cousins ruled the underworld, and many young Jewish boys found a brotherhood in the gangs. As the fascist menace grew in New York, Meyer Lansky became the nation’s top Jewish gangster. #4 Fascist ideology is based on the belief that a dictator is better than an elected one because many voters are enemies of the people and need to be oppressed. It requires a strong leader and a weaker scapegoat. In Germany, Hitler became the dictator and Jews the scapegoat.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The title that launched a thousand lips is based on a joke about a panda that walks into a bar, orders a meal, and shoots into the air. The puzzled waiter asks why, and the panda replies that he’s a panda. #2 The first requirement of a POP! pitch is that it is purposeful. If people are scratching their heads after you’ve introduced your idea or invention, wondering what this has to do with them, you’ve wasted their time and yours. #3 The premise of POP! is that you must be a good date for your customers. You must be original and offer something different from everyone else. When you’re one of a kind, there is no competition. #4 The human brain can only hold about seven bits of information in short-term memory. If your description of your offer is longer than seven words, people won’t be able to remember it. So, when pitching, brevity is essential.

Sample Book Insights: #1 Following the deportation of Marcus Garvey, the Black Star Line, and the Great Migration, black nationalism did not so much decline as it transformed into diminished versions of the movement. #2 Earl and Louise’s shared love for social justice drew them to an itinerant lifestyle that was only predictable by the frequency of childbirth and relocation. Their political activism in parts of the Midwest attracted threats from local white supremacist groups, which forced the family to flee. #3 After Earl’s death, Malcolm tried to re-create the family structure he had lost. He had a natural affinity for reading, debating, and social engagement, and he was touted as a charismatic leader at a young age. #4 In 1941, Malcolm moved in with his half sister, Ella Mae Collins, in Boston. He began to rebel against the conventions of black and white middle-class ambitions. He didn’t want to work a dead-end job, and he didn’t want to join the military. He wanted to enjoy a life constrained by Jim Crow to the fullest.

It provides you with practical strategies to help you learn how to eat with purpose, live your life, and lose weight so you can keep it off for good. #2 You have probably tried to lose weight before. Perhaps you gained some weight and were embarrassed or frustrated, so you decided to lose it. But you gave up when you saw only a little success. #3 The 2B Mindset is designed to be sustainable from day one. It doesn’t shame you for your love of food, busy schedule, skipped workouts, or lack of meal prep, but it works with you and your real life. It redefines your relationship with food and with how you think about eating. #4 The 2B Mindset is not a diet. You’re not going to count calories, you’re not going to calculate grams, and you’re not going to cut out food groups. You’ll focus on the positive and what works for you, and all you need to start is an open mind.

Sample Book Insights: #1 Mindfulness is about learning how to train your attention to stay in the present instead of ruminating over the past or racing into the future. The more you practice, the more mindful you become, and the more you see the world as it really is. #2 Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when we deliberately direct our attention toward our inner experience, others, and the environment around us. It is about your mindset, and it reinforces a mindset of being open, receptive, accepting, and compassionate. #3 Your brain and nervous system are designed to keep you alive. Your brain’s own alarm system is scanning for threats and triggering the flight-fight-freeze stress response to escape what you interpret as danger. #4 Mindfulness helps you navigate the complex world, and it also helps you with the inevitable challenges that life brings – both the joy and the pain. You have the choice of how to relate to the experience, and how to respond to it.

You are an irresistible woman, and you should be proud of that. #3 You are not your mind. You have a mind, but you are not your mind. You are also not the conversation you have with yourself in your mind. You are the awareness, the observer, the listener. You are the wise, elegant, generous, and loving consciousness that knows what I’m talking about right now. #4 When you make your is-ness your business, you accept reality and stop resisting it.

Sample Book Insights: #1 I was researching a story about settled gypsies in 1995, and I wanted to meet one of them, George, who was living in Hollywood. I went to the Formosa Café, and when I didn’t see George, I sat down and watched a tennis match on the TV above the bar. A man next to me began watching a documentary about Charles Manson. #2 I had fled the city because of the bad air, but I was also escaping the atmosphere of boundless possibility. I had always felt that L. A. was a place to experiment and shed the past, but now it felt like it was bedrock. #3 I was so afraid of the women in Manson’s group, who seemed normal, that I couldn’t bring myself to read about the murders. I was also afraid of Charles Manson, who had achieved almost mythical status in the country. #4 The enduring power of the Manson myth stems not only from his involvement in the murders, but from his ability to destroy the humanity of seemingly normal young people who killed at his command.

Sample Book Insights: #1 Gino grew up in Ponte a Ema, a town in Italy that was a laundry town. The orchards outside town were ideal for any pastime that involved hiding and chasing, and he and his friends would frequently play games of tag or cops and robbers in the fields. #2 Gino’s father, Torello, was the primary breadwinner of the family. He was a quiet, old workhorse who moved with the ease of a young one. His features did not reveal much about him. He always wore a beret and a thick mustache covered the edges of his mouth. #3 Torello was a laborer who worked primarily in the fields. He was used to hard work, but his job stability did little to inspire confidence. He worked principally in the fields, and when that type of job wasn’t available, he worked in a local quarry. #4 The bicycle had been invented more than a century before Gino, but the first versions were little more than wooden horses mounted on wheels. In 1790, a Frenchman rode one of these devices in a rudimentary race around the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

Book excerpt: This book takes a fresh look at this issue in economic policy. Graham Dunkley provides a critical history of international trade and an alternative analysis to orthodox doctrines about trade policy.

He concludes by suggesting elements of a new approach to development and an alternative world trading and economic order.

Sample Book Insights: #1 On June 22, 1897, London celebrated the 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria's ascension to the throne. The sun emerged patriotically from an overcast sky just after the Queen's carriage left Buckingham Palace. #2 Victoria's empire was not known for its modesty. The overseas cables had been kept clear of traffic until the Queen pressed an electric button linked to the Central Telegraph Office. From there, as the various lancers, hussars, camel troopers, turbaned Sikhs, and Borneo Dayak police marched through the city, her greeting flashed in Morse code to every part of the empire. #3 The British army, in peacetime as well as during wartime, was led by the cavalry. It was a small select aristocracy born booted and spurred to ride, who thought of everyone else as a large dim mass born saddled and bridled to be ridden. #4 John French was a lieutenant in the 19th Regiment of Hussars in 1874. He was promoted to captain soon after, and then married two years later. He seemed genuinely fond of his new wife, although he would still embark on an endless string of love affairs.
