For three decades Bob Jones has entertained and informed with his books, both fiction and non-fiction. Given his commercial success, Bob is well-placed to write on management, but this is no dry exposition as one might anticipate with such a subject. Rather, an eclectic range of topics, individuals and propositions grace these pages. Was Haile Selassie foolish to deny Rastafarians' claim that he was God? Could there be a market for wheel-chaired strippers? The importance of drunkenness in making commercial decisions. These and many other subjects are addressed in a book that will delight readers and is vintage Jones. First published 2008.

Spinfluence : The Hardcore Propoganda Manual for Controlling the Masses

Spinfulence is an irreverent take on how propoganda is used by "The 1%" to control the remaining 99%. It's written from the perspective of an organisation that works directly for the 1%, but in a satirical twist the book exposes the amoral and highly unethical techniques used through propoganda by those in economic and political power to control the masses. Densely illustrated, the book features cohesive and striking graphic design elements, illustrations, and graphs and charts on every page. By doing so, the subject of propoganda, which is usually buried in dense and daunting media studies and political studies texts, is made accessible to a broader audience. Spinfluence is the first book of its kind to break down and demystify the black image of propoganda using historical facts and quotes from a wide range of sources, such as economic theory, advertising, politics, psychology, popular culture, and historical and modern warfare.
