A passionate tribute to vinyl, spotlighting rock’s most influential records — from The Beatles’ 1963 debut Please Please Me, through the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind the Bollocks (1977) — 101 Essential Rock Records celebrates the “Golden Age.” A thoughtful essay on each album accompanies the original vinyl cover artwork, with rare variations from around the world. Also included are provocative interviews with musicians discussing the albums and artists who changed their lives. David Bowie speaks eloquently about the Velvet Underground’s influence, noting his band, Buzz, performed “I’m Waiting For The Man” at their last gig, and that “it was the first time a Velvet song had been covered by anyone, anywhere in the world. Lucky me.” Susanne Vega, Peter Buck (REM), Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Nels Cline (Wilco), Devendra Banhart, Robyn Hitchcock and more contribute original texts. Pictorial explorations of Jimi Hendrix’s personal record collection, and a survey of censored album covers from throughout the rock era are also featured. The sales of vinyl LPs have been growing rapidly while other physical mediums continue to wither, a trend driven in no small part by classic re-issues and the advent of record store day in 2008. 101 Essential is the perfect accompaniment and guide to digging in the bins for that quintessential vinyl experience.

Books about advertising are, more often than not, supposed to act as sources of inspiration. Copy Paste daringly takes the opposite tack. It is not that the hoards of adverts compiled here are lacking in artistic merit. Au Contraire! The showcased advertisements have been presented at major industry conferences and have won prestigious awards. Another common trait among the campaigns that Copy Paste presents is that all of them are reproductions. Whether that is the result of deliberate plagiarism or unlucky coincidence remains an open question. Copy Paste provides the images and allows the reader to make the judgment call. A visual lesson in originality: selected campaigns possess unique hashtags that allow readers to interact with Joe la Pompe’s extensive research, cast their opinion online, and make their own judgements. Copy Paste, Joe la Pompe’s third book, campaigns for more creativity. Through over six hundred ad campaigns featuring under three hundred original concepts, the volume begs the question: coincidence, phenomenon, or shameless plagiarism? To decide, you will have to read it – at least twice. For nearly 20 years, Joe la Pompe has pursued a passion for uncovering identical adverts that flaunt identical ideas and concepts, but that originate from different countries and periods. Joe la Pompe brings them face to face in the most simple and possible striking way. Working undercover with the help of his iconic mask, today, he is the world’s best known “copycat hunter”. The French blogger is followed by advertisers from around the world who love his revelations though their admiration may swiftly change to bitterness once he catches them.

Graeme Fowler is the author of the NZ Best Selling book “NZ Real Estate Investors’ Secrets – How 10 New Zealanders became Millionaires from Residential Property” which was first published in 2003, and then updated in 2008. This book has now sold almost 15,000 copies making it one of, if not the highest selling book on property investment ever written in New Zealand. Graeme is a well known educator, speaker and property expert in NZ. He has completed over 500 real estate transactions since starting out at the young age of 24 after reading the classic book “Jones on Property” by Bob Jones. Graeme has a portfolio of over 70 properties and still is very actively buying, renovating and selling properties today. In this latest book, Graeme had the idea to see if he could buy 20 properties using no equity (money) with one simple idea. He wanted to buy these properties with ‘no money being used overall from his existing properties’ that is 100% financed. The rents from these properties would need to cover the mortgage, the rates, the insurance and property management and all mortgages be fully paid off in 20 years time. This is a very informative, in depth and detailed journey of exactly how Graeme achieved this in only 12 months. He also gives detailed Spreadsheets of all the properties summarised with purchase prices, equity gained, cash-flow and the loan details. He also writes many articles on property and its related topics and these are often featured in Property Magazines. In this book he shares many of these informative and very well thought out articles for the reader to enjoy, and learn from. For any person interested in Property or Property Investing, this book really is a must read.

A visual and emotional impact, etc… the key to many campaigns, and the essential element for reaching the widest possible audience, generating a whole range of sensations in the viewer. A successful advertising campaign, via its script and presentation, needs to stand out amid hundreds of other received images, and manage to ensure that is more memorable and visible than the rest. To achieve this it must impact on the senses after first capturing our attention through surprise, intrigue, curiosity, and sometimes even via negative sensations such as disgust, rejection or an appeal to the conscience. All sorts of emotional responses may be affected by a well planned publicity campaign, leaving the viewer with a strong sense of the specific and desired message. We have looked at two particular chapters in the book, “Printed Advertising”, which presents a range of work produced for media such as magazines, newspapers, brochures, mailbox leaflets and mailing…, in short all types of advertising on paper, as well as “outdoor Advertising”, in which public spaces are used to display messages to an undetermined audience.

The only constant is change—especially in today's business environment. Increasing globalization and the rise of new markets and technologies are forcing companies to compete in a more turbulent world than ever. To survive and thrive, organizations must be able to continuously evolve. Unfortunately, people tend to resist change. Uncertainty can be daunting, and people generally prefer to keep doing what they already know, avoiding unfamiliar situations, particularly in their work. The good news is that change can be managed using the same processes many organizations already use in their day-to-day project management activities. After all, every project results in some type of change to an organization. Building on the Project Management Institute's Managing Change in Organizations: A Practice Guide, and drawing on the project management expertise of a wide variety of authors, How Successful Organizations Implement Change explains the critical aspects of the change management process and outlines the methods that project, program, and portfolio managers can utilize to bring effective change in a complex and transient business context. For practitioners who are directly leading the change effort as well as those affected by it; for executives formulating strategies, even those managing operations; and for academics researching or teaching others about organizational change management, the examples provided in this book cover a broad range of industries and areas of business. How Successful Organizations Implement Change combines the change management knowledge of experts, academics, researchers, and practitioners with tools, processes, and templates, all of which make this volume a valuable resource, a must-have, for leaders of change in organizations.
