Built on the keystones of rhetoric, Everyone's an Author provides a strong foundation for authoring in the digital age: in college essays, but also on Twitter; in print, but also online; with words, but also with sound, video, and images. It shows students that the rhetorical skills they already use in social media, in their home and religious communities, at work and in other nonacademic contexts are the same ones they'll need to succeed in college. Examples and readings drawn from across multiple media and dealing with topics that matter to students today make this a book that everyone who takes first-year writing will relate to.

More than 70% of customers consult online reviews and take them very seriously. A disgruntled customer on Yelp might have more clout than a guidebook, magazine, or newspaper. This review-driven marketplace terrifies many businesses. But some have learnt to navigate and profit from customer reviews. Bill Tancer takes readers on a fascinating journey inside that world, to find out why one Los Angeles barber advertised his one-star reviews and how one scrappy hotel became the highest rated in London. Tancer's fascinating stories and data-driven research reveal how sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor are changing the way we interact and show how business owners can leverage online reviews to find greater success.

Everyone wants you to read the book on which he or she is working, a novel everyone is writing in order to find the meaning of life, with which everyone's spouse ran off. But everyone has to finish the novel before everyone can know where the novel begins. In the meantime, there are all these distractions, such as the twelfth-floor window at the office building where everyone works out of which people or maybe just one person keeps jumping or falling--everyone isn't sure--or everyone's sexy coworker Sam, whom everyone is struggling valiantly against to keep from becoming a paramour. It's kind of pitiful, actually, the way everyone keeps begging you to read, sending you e-mails, dropping it into conversation ("I have a book, you know?"), posting links to it on social-networking sites. Everyone figures that if he or she begs enough, you will break down and try it.

AWARD WINNING BOOK: Axiom Business Book Awards 2015 “Inspired, generous and filled to the brim with action--your action. Go!” - Seth Godin, Author, The Icarus Deception “WARNING: This book will radically transform your thinking.” - Matt R Johnson, Director of Cyber Security for a major global financial institution, London, UK “This is a great book! Jen is a personal trainer for your brain - and we all need that.” - Andrew Griffiths, Australia’s #1 Small Business and Entrepreneurial Author “Five out of five! A highly enjoyable and beautifully illustrated book.” - Dr Nik Whitehead, Lecturer, University of Wales: Trinity St David, UK There is no currency in circulation today that wasn't first birthed by an IDEA. What would just one brilliant and original idea be worth to you in your lifetime? How about a dozen? Ideation expert Jen Fraser reveals a range of innovative and exciting new ways to solve problems and come up with incredible ideas - helping you to change your life forever and make a real impact on the world. Take for example, the gaping chasm between what we believe to be impossible, and what can actually be achieved. In 2012, the aviation industry globally was estimated to be worth more than $700 billion. That's not a bad result for an industry based on an idea which was once known to be utterly impossible: human flight. Not since Napoleon Hill's masterpiece 'Think and Grow Rich' has there been a book as game-changing and so easy to understand, yet filled to bursting with inspirational stories, effective techniques, tips and tricks to expand your imagination and bring better quality ideas to life.

Everyone s an Addict

'Everyone's an Addict' is aimed at anyone. The hypothesis is that we're all addicts. If not to the major league isms, alcohol, drugs, food, gambling and sex; or the second division clutter, hoarding, shopping, video games and work; then to the minor league smoking, sudoku, TV shows and the like - something. Addiction robs us of time that would better be spent in improving our own lives and, as a byproduct, other people's. Even those who think they are not addicted but would like to improve themselves, can all benefit. It has a secular approach - supporting freedom of religious belief, or none, for all. And, inline with the UN's ideas, anyone should be able to change their beliefs at any time. So it is suggested that people who attend meetings primarily address their addictions and keep the meetings non-religious. There are plenty of opportunities to practice religion, atheism and agnosticism elsewhere. 12-step meetings are non-religious, so they are aimed at everyone, too. Not everyone addresses addiction through a twelve step meeting, though, and those that choose an alternative route will find 'Everyone's an Addict' equally helpful to them, whether they attend a clinic or choose another method. This book takes the format of an inspirational comment for each day of the year. Therefore the appropriately numbered 'step', 'tradition' and 'concept' from AA is covered month-by-month. Further 12 step programs like NA, OA, GA, SA and others are given coverage, too. Are you an addict? For the inquisitive drinker asking the question 'Am I an alcoholic?' the question is: Do you have trouble stopping drinking once you have started? If so, you are most likely an alcoholic. Is it the same for you with drugs, eating, gambling or violent behavior? Did you indulge in it when your intentions were dead set against it? Do you have other disorders around eating, like bulimia? Is sex something that preoccupies you unduly? Do you have behavioral problems in other directions such as anger, over-dependence on other people, hiding away from the world, lying, bullying and so on? Sometimes it is a multiple problem and the prime addiction needs to be identified. In Twelve Step programs these disorders must be self-diagnosed and the stepper must be a willing participant. Simply, it is anyone with a desire to stop doing whatever is causing the problem. Members hope that when potential newcomers reach their rock bottom they will have a moment of clarity and turn into a willing, or at least inquisitive, customer before it is too late. They hope the existence of these programs will come to the prospect's mind at the appropriate time, maybe due to the seed planted by information in a school talk years before, or through information passed on through doctors, magistrates, police, and the press. If you don't feel your behavior is obsessive or addictive, if you are interested in this book to make a general improvement in your behavior, ask yourself a similar question to the one above. Have you behaved badly towards someone when you had not intended to, or perhaps your behavior was over the top? Do you ratchet up an argumentative situation rather than try to take the heat out of it or walk away? Are you determined to have your way for the sake of it when there are many suitable ways to go? Are you controlling of other people or a compulsive helper? Results of these 12-step programs include: the relief of identifying yourself as an addict or someone with problem behavior after years of denial; the pride of being honest with yourself and the beginning of building your self-esteem; knowing yourself better and accentuating the positives. Then there is further self-improvement in the calming influence of meditation. Finally there is the task of helping other addicts and people at large because the programs are bridges to normal living.

The Little Seagull Handbook

Most handbooks include chapters on various general writing topics (e.g., the writing process or the elements of an argument), but few cover the specific kinds of writing students are assigned to do. The Little Seagull has chapters on reports, analyses, and all the other genres that college students are most often assigned. And because it's so small, so easy to use, and so affordable, it's proven to be a popular alternative to larger (and much more costly) handbooks. The 3rd Edition adds a new section on editing the errors that matter--and free access to InQuizitive for Writers, which provides practice in editing the same errors.

In India, operators in customer service call centers are required to speak English with an American accent and to be able to make small talk about the Super Bowl. Closer to home, ABC News offers up a linguistic profiling quiz. And George Orwell continues to lament the state of politics and the English language.

Believe it or not, everyone's a genius at something. We just need to uncover and release it for the sake of the world. Every member of your church comes with a unique set of God-given skills and talents. As a church leader, you have the weighty task of uncovering and validating them. Your challenge is to help your members identify and unleash their gifts to bring glory to God. But in our selfie-focused society, this task can feel overwhelming. God doesn't see two groups: his gifted children and the rest of us. He didn't give the Great Commission only to the extremely talented—musicians, writers, artists, pastors, and church staff. He gave it to all of us. To each of us. So, how do we help our members find their "sweet spots" of service in the kingdom? In Everyone's a Genius, author, pastor, and leadership consultant Alan Briggs, shares his belief that bringing out the abilities of often overlooked Christians—those whose unique skill sets are not as easily identifiable—remains a key component that will determine the church's impact in this and coming generations. This is an inspiring look at how we can more effectively motivate Christians to leverage their personal abilities for Christ. The truth is, reading this book is risky! It can change how you see every person you're leading. It can make you see your community differently. It can help you find gifts within your church family that will surprise you. It can also unlock something within you that you never knew mattered to God. It can expand your vision of the world, deepen your appreciation for "the least of these," and refocus the mission of your church. Perhaps God will use this book to take you on a journey toward a more appropriate theology of creativity. Yes, it’s a risk, but a risk we simply must take to impact the world for Jesus. Are you in?

The illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, where he meets all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, while learning to feel a little better about himself—based on the enormously popular Twitter account. Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, an alien sent to study Earth. Always feeling apart, even among his species, Jomny feels at home for the first time among the earthlings he meets. There is a bear tired of other creatures running in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, a turtle hiding itself by learning camouflage, a puppy struggling to express its true feelings, and many more. The characters are unique and inventive—bees think long and hard about what love means, birds try to eat the sun, nothingness questions its own existence, a ghost comes to terms with dying, and an introverted hedgehog slowly lets Jomny see its artistic insecurities. At the same time, Jomny’s curious presence allows these characters to open up to him in ways they were never able to before, revealing the power of somebody who is just there to listen. Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too is also the story behind the widely-shared and typo-filled @jonnysun twitter account. Since the beginning, Sun intentionally tweeted from an outsider’s perspective, creating a truly distinct voice. Now, that outsider has taken shape in the character of Jomny, who observes Earth with the same intelligent, empathetic, and charmingly naïve voice that won over his fans on social media. New fans will find it organic, and old fans will delight at seeing the clever words that made them fans in the first place. Through this story of a lost, lonely and confused Alien finding friendship, acceptance, and love among the animals and plants of Earth, we will all learn how to be a little more human. And for all the earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we will all learn how sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are.
