Do you really know who or what your competition is? In this audiobook, Dr. Heidi Thorne, MBA/DBA, discusses competitive forces that prevent small businesses, solopreneurs, and self-employed consultants from making sales. What’s even more troubling is that these forces are largely invisible, meaning that they may be attitudes and situations, and not similar suppliers. This can make them very difficult to identify and overcome. Drawing on her decades of experience in selling, advertising, and publishing, Heidi explains several critical invisible competition forces, along with ways to combat them in the marketplace. Heidi is the author of more than 20 books and eBooks on self publishing and marketing topics. She has more than 25 years of experience in sales, advertising, and publishing, including more than 15 years as editor and regional advertising director for a trade newspaper. In addition to her own publishing pursuits, she helps nonfiction authors avoid embarrassing and expensive self publishing mistakes with her editing services.

In December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for all users, and we entered a new era of personalization. With little notice or fanfare, our online experience is changing, as the websites we visit are increasingly tailoring themselves to us. In this engaging and visionary book, MoveOn.org board president Eli Pariser lays bare the personalization that is already taking place on every major website, from Facebook to AOL to ABC News. As Pariser reveals, this new trend is nothing short of an invisible revolution in how we consume information, one that will shape how we learn, what we know, and even how our democracy works. The race to collect as much personal data about us as possible, and to tailor our online experience accordingly, is now the defining battle for today´s internet giants like Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft. Behind the scenes, a burgeoning industry of data companies is tracking our personal information to sell to advertisers, from our political leanings to the hiking boots we just browsed on Zappos. As a result, we will increasingly each live in our own, unique information universe-what Pariser calls ´´the filter bubble.´´ We will receive mainly news that is pleasant, familiar and confirms our beliefs-and since these filters are invisible, we won´t know what is being hidden from us. Our past interests will determine what we are exposed to in the future, leaving less room for the unexpected encounters that spark creativity, innovation and the democratic exchange of ideas. Drawing on interviews with both cyber-skeptics and cyber-optimists, from the co-founder of OK Cupid, an algorithmically-driven dating website, to one of the chief visionaries of U.S. information warfare, THE FILTER BUBBLE tells the story of how the Internet, a medium built around the open flow of ideas, is closing in on itself under the pressure of commerce and ´´monetization.´´ It peeks behind the curtain at the server farms, algorithms, and geeky entrepreneurs that have given us this new reality, and investigates the consequences of corporate power in the digital age. THE FILTER BUBBLE reveals how personalization could undermine the internet´s original purpose as an open platform for the spread of ideas, and leave us all in an isolated, echoing world. But it is not too late to change course. Pariser lays out a new vision for the web, one that embraces the benefits of technology without turning a blind eye to its negative consequences, and will ensure that the Internet lives up to its transformative promise.

Until the recent political shift pushed workers back into the media spotlight, the mainstream media had largely ignored this significant part of American society in favor of the moneyed ´´upscale´´ consumer for more than four decades. Christopher R. Martin now reveals why and how the media lost sight of the American working class and the effects of it doing so.The damning indictment of the mainstream media that flows through No Longer Newsworthy is a wakeup call about the critical role of the media in telling news stories about labor unions, workers, and working-class listeners. As Martin charts the decline of labor reporting from the late 1960s onwards, he reveals the shift in news coverage as the mainstream media abandoned labor in favor of consumer and business interests. When newspapers, especially, wrote off working-class readers as useless for their business model, the American worker became invisible. In No Longer Newsworthy, Martin covers this shift in focus, the loss of political voice for the working class, and the emergence of a more conservative media in the form of Christian television, talk radio, Fox News, and conservative websites.Now, with our fractured society and news media, Martin offers the mainstream media recommendations for how to push back against right-wing media and once again embrace the working class as critical to its audience and its democratic function.The book is published by Cornell University Press. 1.

An inspirational coming-of-age story dealing with family, faith, sacrifice, and honor, Heaven Above, Earth Below weaves the lives of three men in a modern-day metamorphosis that will warm the patriotic heart. Eldest son in the Mann family, Navy lieutenant Jason Mann has flown over 50 successful missions in Iraq. Finally returning to the States, he reunites with his family, continues to work as a Naval flight instructor, and looks forward to life after the military. Younger son John is on a quest to prove himself as a man. After legal troubles force him to spend community service hours at a local retirement home, he meets an old man, a survivor from the USS Indianapolis, who helps John balance his life and priorities. With his adventures at the retirement home and living at home with his mother and little sister, John is set on an adventure that provides him the answers he seeks. Plagued with nightmares of a tragedy that happened almost 60 years ago, the old man attempts to confront the demons of his past while continuing to live within the invisible prison bars of guilt. Only with John´s help is he able to finally break free. A portion of all proceeds will go to the Lt. Jason Manse Memorial Fund that will support a scholarship at Canton Central Catholic High School for a deserving senior who is about to enter the military.
