Book Summary:

How do we create new ways of looking at the world? Join award-winning data storyteller RJ Andrews as he pushes beyond the usual how-to, and takes you on an adventure into the rich art of informing. Creating Info We Trust is a craft that puts the world into forms that are strong and true. It begins with maps, diagrams, and charts — but must push further than dry defaults to be truly effective. How do we attract attention? How can we offer audiences valuable experiences worth their time? How can we help people access complexity? Dark and mysterious, but full of potential, data is the raw material from which new understanding can emerge. Become a hero of the information age as you learn how to dip into the chaos of data and emerge with new understanding that can entertain, improve, and inspire. Whether you call the craft data storytelling, data visualization, data journalism, dashboard design, or infographic creation — what matters is that you are courageously confronting the chaos of it all in order to improve how people see the world. Info We Trust is written for everyone who straddles the domains of data and people: data visualization professionals, analysts, and all who are enthusiastic for seeing the world in new ways. This book draws from the entirety of human experience, quantitative and poetic. It teaches advanced techniques, such as visual metaphor and data transformations, in order to create more human presentations of data. It also shows how we can learn from print advertising, engineering, museum curation, and mythology archetypes. This human-centered approach works with machines to design information for people. Advance your understanding beyond by learning from a broad tradition of putting things “in formation” to create new and wonderful ways of opening our eyes to the world. Info We Trust takes a thoroughly original point of attack on the art of informing. It builds on decades of best practices and adds the creative enthusiasm of a world-class data storyteller. Info We Trust is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of original compositions designed to illuminate the craft, delight the reader, and inspire a generation of data storytellers.

Book Summary:

The beloved, bestselling classic that became the movie, A CHRISTMAS STORY -- humorous and nostalgic Americana, reissued in a strikingly designed paperback edition. Before Garrison Keillor and Spalding Gray there was Jean Shepherd: a master monologist and writer who spun the materials of his all-American childhood into immensely resonant--and utterly hilarious--works of comic art. In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash represents one of the peaks of his achievement, a compound of irony, affection, and perfect detail that speaks across generations. In God We Trust, Shepherd's wildly witty reunion with his Indiana hometown, disproves the adage "You can never go back." Bending the ear of Flick, his childhood-buddy-turned-bartender, Shepherd recalls passionately his genuine Red Ryder BB gun, confesses adolescent failure in the arms of Junie Jo Prewitt, and relives a story of man against fish that not even Hemingway could rival. From pop art to the World's Fair, Shepherd's subjects speak with a universal irony and are deeply and unabashedly grounded in American Midwestern life, together rendering a wonderfully nostalgic impression of a more innocent era when life was good, fun was clean, and station wagons roamed the earth. A comic genius who bridged the gap between James Thurber and David Sedaris, Shepherd may have accomplished for Holden, Indiana, what Mark Twain did for Hannibal, Missouri.

Illustrated with 30 maps, portraits and diagrams of the Waterloo Campaign Philip Guedalla was a British barrister, nut he was better known as a popular historical and biographical writer. His subjects were many and varied, but he had a noted inclination toward European subjects and particularly the history of France. For this volume he chose as his subject the “Hundred Days” — the return of the Emperor Napoleon from exile on Elba to his defeat at Waterloo and his final banishment to St. Helena. Eschewing national bias, the author sums up the dramatic events with wit, panache in his inimitable style.

Book Summary:

“Meet a young man named Odd . . . who helps the dead get even." From the infinite imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz comes the suspenseful graphic-novel debut of a natural-born hero with a supernatural twist. Odd Thomas is a regular nineteen-year-old with an unusual gift: the ability to see the lingering spirits of the dead. To Odd, it’s not such a big deal. And most folks in sleepy Pico Mundo, California, are much more interested in the irresistible pancakes Odd whips up at the local diner. Still, communing with the dead can be useful. Because while some spirits only want a little company . . . others want justice. When the sad specter of a very frightened boy finds its way to him, Odd vows to root out the evil suddenly infecting the sunny streets of Pico Mundo. But even with his exceptional ability–plus the local police and his pistol-packing girlfriend, Stormy, backing him–is Odd any match for a faceless stalker who’s always a step ahead . . . and determined to kill again?

Book Summary:

Why do some parents refuse to vaccinate their children? Why do some people keep guns at home, despite scientific evidence of risk to their family members? And why do people use antibiotics for illnesses they cannot possibly alleviate? When it comes to health, many people insist that science is wrong, that the evidence is incomplete, and that unidentified hazards lurk everywhere. In Denying to the Grave, Gorman and Gorman, a father-daughter team, explore the psychology of health science denial. Using several examples of such denial as test cases, they propose six key principles that may lead individuals to reject "accepted" health-related wisdom: the charismatic leader; fear of complexity; confirmation bias and the internet; fear of corporate and government conspiracies; causality and filling the ignorance gap; and the nature of risk prediction. The authors argue that the health sciences are especially vulnerable to our innate resistance to integrate new concepts with pre-existing beliefs. This psychological difficulty of incorporating new information is on the cutting edge of neuroscience research, as scientists continue to identify brain responses to new information that reveal deep-seated, innate discomfort with changing our minds. Denying to the Grave explores risk theory and how people make decisions about what is best for them and their loved ones, in an effort to better understand how people think when faced with significant health decisions. This book points the way to a new and important understanding of how science should be conveyed to the public in order to save lives with existing knowledge and technology.

Book Summary:

Technology and increasing levels of education have exposed people to more information than ever before. These societal gains, however, have also helped fuel a surge in narcissistic and misguided intellectual egalitarianism that has crippled informed debates on any number of issues. Today, everyone knows everything: with only a quick trip through WebMD or Wikipedia, average citizens believe themselves to be on an equal intellectual footing with doctors and diplomats. All voices, even the most ridiculous, demand to be taken with equal seriousness, and any claim to the contrary is dismissed as undemocratic elitism. Tom Nichols' The Death of Expertise shows how this rejection of experts has occurred: the openness of the internet, the emergence of a customer satisfaction model in higher education, and the transformation of the news industry into a 24-hour entertainment machine, among other reasons. Paradoxically, the increasingly democratic dissemination of information, rather than producing an educated public, has instead created an army of ill-informed and angry citizens who denounce intellectual achievement. When ordinary citizens believe that no one knows more than anyone else, democratic institutions themselves are in danger of falling either to populism or to technocracy or, in the worst case, a combination of both. An update to the 2017breakout hit, the paperback edition of The Death of Expertise provides a new foreword to cover the alarming exacerbation of these trends in the aftermath of Donald Trump's election. Judging from events on the ground since it first published, The Death of Expertise issues a warning about the stability and survival of modern democracy in the Information Age that is even more important today.

Book Summary:

The inspiring, life-changing bestseller by the author of LEADERS EAT LAST and TOGETHER IS BETTER. In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on START WITH WHY -- the third most popular TED video of all time. Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it. START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.

Kelowna, BC is sometimes referred to as the "Palm Springs" of Canada, and the Okanagan Valley is often referred to as the "Napa Valley of the North." If you have ever wondered what it would actually be like to live in Kelowna, or anywhere in the Okanagan for that matter, then this book is your gateway to that reality. Moving To Kelowna is not a tourist guide, although certain portions could certainly be considered as such. Relocating to a new city can sometimes be a traumatic experience. Our goal is to provide newcomers with the objective information they will need so that their transition to Kelowna can be made with confidence. We do this by providing facts, and a few experienced opinions, about why so many people want to live here. Being armed with no-nonsense, well-researched information will make any newcomer's transition a more stress-free, fun and enjoyable one. Cities everywhere have their pros and cons, however it is rare to have the cons exposed in order to fully enlighten potential newcomers. We include not only the benefits of moving to Kelowna, but also the challenges because we believe that being honestly informed before relocating, will not only allow for a smooth transition, but will also produce happier citizens. Get Unbiased Answers to These, and Many More Important Questions: - Is it true that Kelowna has a Sunshine Tax? - How do the local schools rank? - Will I be able to find a job? - Will my family be safe? - Is the weather really as good as they say? - Give me a break, what are the challenges to living in Kelowna? - Is there available and affordable daycare for my children? - Will I be able to access good healthcare when I need it? - How does the rental market compare to other cities in Canada? - Is Kelowna business friendly? - What are 'the' best things to do for fun in the area? We have analyzed research from hundreds of reliable sources to create this one-of-a-kind. . . no-nonsense guide. There is no other single source of information that tackles all of these questions on the minds of potential newcomers. The authors are two enthusiastic but realistic residents who have enjoyed life in Kelowna for more than 25 years. We have raised our families here, operated our businesses here, and we plan to retire here. We close our publication with the best business referrals that we could muster. These are trusted business people that will help you settle in once you arrive; and, they will give you a discount, to boot If you want to make the most informed decision you can before relocating to Kelowna, then Moving To Kelowna is arguably the most convenient and valuable investment you can make.

Book Summary:

Following the path explored by the groundbreaking book, Principled Policy that analyzed the American Social Contract and built a framework of how to understand the most important public policy issues of our time, Edifice of Trust reviews the most important social issues of our time within the framework of the American Founding Principles. The book discusses how to apply timeless Enlightenment principles to the breaking news stories of today and reviews the policy positions of the presidential candidates running in the 2016 election. The book discusses how the major party candidates do not base their policies on the principles established by John Locke in his seminal work the Second Treatise on Government that guided the Founding Fathers when they established the new republic of the United States but rather on the monarchical and statist principles put forth by Thomas Hobbes in his book, Leviathan. You will look at the issues and the candidates with a new perspective after reading this book.
