Lethal Generosity: Contextual Technology & the Competitive Edge is the sequel to Age of Context: Mobile, Sensors, Data, and the Future of Privacy, a critically acclaimed and best-selling book co-authored by Shel Israel and Robert Scoble. The previous book reported on the rapid convergence of five technology forces - mobile (and wearables), social media, the Internet of Things (IoT), location technologies, and data creating the promising - and the occasionally freaky sensation that our devices are starting to know us better than the closest people in our lives. The story picks up two years later in Lethal Generosity, where the freakiness has faded and retailers and other public-facing companies are rapidly adopting these new technologies. This time, instead of technologies converging with each other, these contextual forces are converging with humans in the form of Millennials, the first generation of digital natives. The book examines them as customers, employees, and competitors, and advices companies run by older cultures on how to adapt to this significant marketplace change. The result of all this is that power has shifted from sellers and brand efforts to buyers who use social media to influence each other. Companies who ignore this shift do so at their peril. Companies who do adjust will flourish, the author argues. Just what should brands and merchants do: Israel prescribes a policy of lethal generosity. By being kind to your customers at every touch point, you'll prevent any customer attempts to hijack them through traditional marketing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey Kafer.

Discover the stunning rise, fall, and legacy of N.W.A., one of America's most revered and iconic enduring music groups, who put their stamp on pop culture and black culture and who changed hip-hop music forever, in this comprehensive and authoritative work of music journalism. Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren, and DJ Yella caused a seismic shift in hip-hop when they decided to form N.W.A. in 1986. Suddenly rap became gangsta and relevant on the West Coast. With their hard-core image, bombastic sound, and lyrics that were equal parts poetic, lascivious, conscious, and downright in-your-face, N.W.A. spoke the truth about life on the streets of Compton, California - then a hotbed of poverty, drugs, gangs, and unemployment. Their 'hood tales offered a sharp contrast from the cozy, comfortable images of thriving middle-class life emanating from television screens across America. For the group, making music was not about being nice or projecting a false reality. It was all about expressing themselves. Going beyond the story portrayed in the 2015 blockbuster movie Straight Outta Compton, through firsthand interviews, extensive research, and top-notch storytelling, Los Angeles Times music reporter Gerrick Kennedy transports you back in time and offers a front-row seat to N.W.A.'s early days and the drama and controversy that followed the incendiary group as they rose to become multiplatinum artists. A riveting and illuminating work of music journalism, Parental Discretion Is Advised captures a special moment in rap music, when N.W.A. made it altogether social, freaky, enterprising, and gangsta. They forced us all to take notice. For that alone, their story must be told. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Guy Lockard.

The language in this audiobook might offend some people. If it does make you feel uncomfortable and you feel like something isn't quite right while listening to it, then great. You should feel uncomfortable. Feeling uncomfortable and out of your element is the first step in making a change. Often, growing requires an uncomfortable feeling. I intend for this audiobook to serve as a handbook for tracking and documenting your progress. The end of this audiobook will become the beginning of your progression to success. You will find parts of this audiobook to have somewhat of a vulgar swag to it because success and failure can be dirty, nasty, freaky things. They can be deceiving, trifling, manipulating, hence the crude tone. But the journey you will encounter in this audiobook will open your mind to understanding what success is truly made of and what it will take to win. With regard to the dirty language you will encounter in this audiobook, it's how I represent the harsh reality that comes with success. The pain you will have to overcome is a bitch, but it's the sweetest thing you can experience in life, besides creating a new life. Listening to this will prepare you to embrace what is thrown at you. Success is sexy as hell, the way it moves through time and carves out solid opportunities. We all want to get in bed with success; we all have fallen in love with success. However, before that relationship can really work, you have to date success' building blocks and prerequisites. You have to wine and dine all its predecessors in order to make the long-term relationship with success work. Your attraction to success probably started in your life at a young age, as did success' evil twin, failure. Keep in mind that if you're getting into bed with success, you are also sleeping with failure. This ménage à trois is unbreakable - a two-for-one, if you will. Trust me when I tell you failure is one jealous motherf--ker. Failure has a way of c 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Stansell.

From purple blobs and desert islands to exciting festivals to the laboratory of the greatest American inventor, this outrageously colorful 80-page family guidebook crashes through all boundaries and redefines what a guidebook that's truly designed for children can be. While it features both indoor attractions and outdoor adventures for all members of the family, including cool excuses to get muddy and super-fun reasons to dress up, there's nothing typically guidebook-ish about it. A (mostly) Kids' Guide to Sanibel and Captiva Islands and the Fort Myers Coast is a roadmap to regional discovery and fun like no other. Beginning with the first chapter: 'Everything You Need to Know: Some of it is Quite Weird,' to the last chapter featuring a selection of annual festivals, parades and unique happenings, every chapter is a visual feast, combining practical ideas and inside tips on free things to do with freaky factoids, fascinating legends and hilarious quizzes -- sprinkled throughout with everything from animal tracks to polka dots. Several spokes-creatures, including Marigold the loggerhead turtle, Freckles the hermit crab and a roseate spoonbill named Rosie, get into the conversation along with a couple of dastardly pirates who provide helpful (and sometimes impertinent) commentary. In this guidebook one must expect the unexpected, such as where to encounter a tiny real-life sea creature with the head of a horse, the tail of a monkey and the pouch of a kangaroo, or a restaurant at the end of a yellow brick road where waiters wear chickens on their heads. Instead of wasting space on boring information about directions and hours that kids don't want to read, the author provides a directory of websites and telephone numbers listing the 150-plus attractions, outfitters and resources mentioned in the book. While A (mostly) Kids' Guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands and the Fort Myers Coast is a must-have guidebook for local families and vacationers, it is an equally enchanting read for school-age kids, parents, grandparents, educators, armchair travelers and even adventure-minded adults without children. A (mostly) Kids' Guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands and the Fort Myers Coast is the second in the Mostly Kids' Guides imprint, following A (mostly) Kids' Guide to Naples, Marco Island & The Everglades, winner of the Silver IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award for travel.
