Help prepare your students for a career in advertising with this innovative, exciting text!

Principles of Advertising is a complete and well-organized introductory textbook to advertising. Educators in the field and students will explore the advertising business environment, the legal and political forces that are involved, advertising agencies and the advertising business, market segmentation, target marketing, product positioning, consumer behavior, marketing and advertising research, the creative aspects of advertising, print advertising, and much more. Intelligent and thorough, Principles of Advertising will give you and your students a complete and captivating introduction to the field and provide new insights to effective and successful strategies.

Using the most up-to-date research, Principles of Advertising examines such advertising classics as the Morton salt girl and the new advertising icons of 1998, such as the Budweiser lizards and the Taco Bell Chihuahua. You will also discover that an international focus permeates this text, with international issues raised in each chapter's section entitled The Global Perspective. For example, you will learn why the Asian market might be interested in receiving Christmas catalogs despite their non-Christian culture, which could mean profits for business.

Unique in its practicality, Principles of Advertising begins each chapter with two descriptive or anecdotal vignettes along with visual illustrations to further engage students who most likely grew up with a visual orientation of the Television Age. You will explore definitions, background histories, and specific examples of different advertising techniques.

Principles of Advertising provides a general introduction to the fast-changing field of contemporary advertising. The fields of marketing and communication are brought together with their differing perspectives to create this authoritative text that features new theories and technologies in today's global marketplace. With a foreword from one of the leaders in the field, Don E.

Experiencing God: knowing and doing the will of God (BV4501.2.B56K58 1997)

Amazon.com Review

Knowing God does not come through a program, a study, or a method. Knowing God comes through a relationship with a Person. This is an intimate love relationship with God. Through this relationship, God reveals Himself, His purposes, and His ways; and He invites you to join Him where He is already at work.

This is the central thesis of Experiencing God by Henry T. Blackaby and Claude V. King. The authors' emphasis on revelation through personal relationship makes faith sound like a true adventure--leading believers to engage with people and circumstances they might otherwise have avoided. The organization of Experiencing God adds to this effect, proceeding step by step through the various ways a believer's relationship with God is deepened (via the Bible, prayer, and the Church, among others). Although there's strong tension between the self-help tone of this book and its hard-line argument that faith is purely a response to God's initiative, many readers will nevertheless find great encouragement in hearing a still, small voice among a vast number of everyday experiences.

Product Description

Experiencing God shows you how to deepen your own personal relationship with God and discover your special place in His Kingdom.

Rain forests: a nonfiction companion to Afternoon on the Amazon (PZ7.O1O1 2001)

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-In this companion to Afternoon on the Amazon (Random, 1995), Jack and Annie encourage readers to undertake their own research related to the rain forest, and that is excellent advice. With the number of full-color, larger-format titles available on the topic, it is hard to justify sticking with the brief introduction and small, black-and-white photos this book offers. Drawings of the children appear somewhere on almost every page, and perhaps their die-hard fans will slog along to keep them in view. However, the book doesn't even provide detailed information on some plants and animals that play an important role in the fictional adventure. For example, the frightening vampire bats and piranhas the children encounter are barely mentioned. The mango, which is the item they need to bring back from their adventure, isn't even included in this title. Tips for research and lists of books, museums, videos, and Web sites could be useful, but it's hard to recommend purchasing a resource that lacks the attributes necessary to do its own subject justice.
Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato

Flat Stanley (PZ7.B81N17 2003)

Amazon.com Review

Poor Stanley. He's a perfectly normal boy until one morning he wakes up flat. After his parents peel the incriminating bulletin board off of him, Stanley must adjust to life as a pancake. He is a boy who takes this kind of thing in stride, though, and soon he's enjoying the advantages of squashedness. Sliding under closed doors is fun, and it's gratifying to be of use to his mother when she drops her ring through a narrow metal grating. Expensive plane fare to California? No problem. Svelte Stanley folds comfortably into a brown paper envelope. There's even room left over in there for an egg-salad sandwich. But Stanley's true moment of glory comes when a gang of thieves begins stealing paintings from the Famous Museum of Art. The case seems hopeless--until our two-dimensional hero saves the day. Here is one boy who doesn't let his profile-challenged body stop him from living life fully--that is, until his brother finds a way to help him become well rounded again. Jeff Brown's matter-of-fact tone and Tomi Ungerer's witty and engaging drawings tickle the funny bone, making this 1964 classic a perennial favorite. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Based on Jeff Brown's original story (HarperCollins, 1964), this oversize picture book condenses some of the adventures of the ever-popular character who was flattened by a bulletin board. Ending up four feet tall, a foot wide, and half-an-inch thick, Stanley discovers that being flat is not only novel (he can slip under cracks), but also exciting. He is mailed off to California in a large envelope; he can be flown like a huge kite; and one night, disguised as a shepherdess, he hides in a painting in the art museum and foils some thieves. Full-page, cartoon illustrations in watercolor and crayon enhance the story while remaining true to the original. This version of an old favorite will introduce a beloved character to a new generation of younger children. It should have wide appeal.–Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY

正義: 一場思辨之旅 (JC578.S5L46 2011)

書名雖然標榜正義,重點卻是思考力的訓練。作者有教學天才,新聞事件信手拈來都是正義思考 的案例。要解釋康德,他使用柯林頓偷腥案。要解釋羅爾斯,他搬出伍迪艾倫。
要把理性帶進公領域,公民必須把自己的正義觀說出道理,不能只是「我說我對就是我 對」。本書目的正是邀請讀者做個自我檢 視,搞清楚自己抱持哪些信念,何以抱持這些信念。有 了理性思辨,民主對話才能向上提升,不會一直停留在互嗆叫陣的層次。

書籍重點
在高等教育,桑德爾教授的 「正義」課堂是一則傳奇。1980年第一次開課,學生只有15人,近年則每每破千,總是比第二熱門課還多出四五百人,累計學生人數已超過一萬五,打破哈佛 375年校史所有紀錄,桃李遍及各界菁英。2009年,哈佛決定把這門課向全球公開。作者不只把教學內容寫成這本書,上課實況還被剪輯成12個鐘頭,在美 國公共電視播出。大學課堂整學期實況向公眾播放, 這是美國電視史上第一次,也是至今唯一僅有的一次。


累翻天的家庭: 充滿希望歡樂的三明治世代 (BT707.7.C13W95 2010)

可能有人提醒你中年危機的麻煩,然而卻沒人告訴過你,「三明治世代」的苦處。
你身處中年危機──被夾在「最偉大的一代」和「最貪婪的一代」中間,手忙腳亂又筋疲力盡,毫無輕鬆可言嗎?孩子們正處於精力旺盛的巔峰,而你的雙親則日易衰老。家裡的經濟跟你的牛仔褲一樣越變越緊,過去不痛不養的事情開始讓你操煩了!
對於「戰後嬰兒潮」(1945-1964)這一代而言,他們的家庭生活好似「三明治」
─穿梭於年邁的高堂與青春少年的子女之間,在履行家庭責任間真會讓他們備受壓迫。當他們走入「中年」(middle age)之際,如何持有恩典的生活呢?
菲爾在本書中真實地呈現其面臨中年危機的窘境,生活雖然充滿各種挑戰;但他幽默的筆鋒則引導人們洞悉生命的真義,並在人生的困境中仍持有熱情的盼望,。既然我們無法讓老化變得緩慢的話,與其著眼於隨之而來的擔憂,還不如衡量什麼才是生命真正的價值。

本書特色
1.在本書中,作者分享自身真實的經歷,且處處充滿歡樂與希望。這是一本有趣、觸
動人心,且鼓舞士氣的書。容易閱讀,令你愛不釋手,列入Amazon五星級好書。
2. 本書以敘事筆法刻劃出時下「三明治世代」的生活樣貌,這也恰恰揭示出戰後嬰兒潮所引發的社會議題。他們在承擔「甜蜜負荷」──上有父母,下有兒女,生活充 滿壓力與疲憊;這種雙重責任讓這群夾縫中的三明治世代,簡直是一根蠟燭兩頭燒!作者以親身的經歷不僅在困境指出生命的出路,同時體現倚靠上帝的恩典所建立 的人生觀。
