New York Times bestseller What makes things popular? If you said advertising, think again. People don’t listen to advertisements, they listen to their peers. But why do people talk about certain products and ideas more than others? Why are some stories and rumors more infectious? And what makes online content go viral? Wharton marketing professor Jonah Berger has spent the last decade answering these questions. He’s studied why New York Times articles make the paper’s own Most E-mailed List, why products get word of mouth, and how social influence shapes everything from the cars we buy to the clothes we wear to the names we give our children. In this book, Berger reveals the secret science behind word-of-mouth and social transmission. Discover how six basic principles drive all sorts of things to become contagious, from consumer products and policy initiatives to workplace rumors and YouTube videos. Contagious combines groundbreaking research with powerful stories. Learn how a luxury steakhouse found popularity through the lowly cheese-steak, why anti-drug commercials might have actually increased drug use, and why more than 200 million consumers shared a video about one of the seemingly most boring products there is: a blender. If you’ve wondered why certain stories get shared, e-mails get forwarded, or videos go viral, Contagious explains why, and shows how to leverage these concepts to craft contagious content. This book provides a set of specific, actionable techniques for helping information spread—for designing messages, advertisements, and information that people will share. Whether you’re a manager at a big company, a small business owner trying to boost awareness, a politician running for office, or a health official trying to get the word out, Contagious will show you how to make your product or idea catch on.

Writing about changes in the notion of womanhood, Denise Riley examines, in the manner of Foucault, shifting historical constructions of the category of "women" in relation to other categories central to concepts of personhood: the soul, the mind, the body, nature, the social. Feminist movements, Riley argues, have had no choice but to play out this indeterminacy of women. This is made plain in their oscillations, since the 1790s, between concepts of equality and of difference. To fully recognize the ambiguity of the category of "women" is, she contends, a necessary condition for an effective feminist political philosophy.

The Visual Toolbox: 60 Lessons for Stronger Photographs is David duChemin's curriculum for the first year of a photography school that doesn't exist, but could. These are the bones of the craft, a year's worth of lessons and assignments for photographers who want to do more than just master their cameras; they want to create compelling photographs. It's for photographers who are stuck and for those having a hard time getting past the technical and into the aesthetic aspects of this craft. The Visual Toolbox was written for aspiring hobbyists and passionate amateurs by a photographer who has learned-and is still learning-these lessons the hard way and wants others to benefit from them. Refreshingly free of platitudes and quick tips, this book is a deeply pragmatic approach to learning a craft that is too often reduced to "how to use your camera." In 60 short lessons, David pairs important concepts with an active assignment for the reader to complete, each one a stepping stone to becoming more proficient with the technical and creative tools of the photographic craft. Photography is so much more than just learning to use a camera, so while some of these tools are the camera and lens, many of them have more to do with the tools of the visual language itself- balance, tension, contrast, storytelling-or with being present, perceptive, and learning to see. This is an inspiring book, filled with beautiful photographs and illustrations, but it's also deeply practical, and filled with get-out-and-try-it kinds of assignments, because in the end one doesn't make stronger photographs by reading a book, but from time spent making photographs. This book is a collection of 60 guided steps in that direction.

Das Herz der Fotografie Aus dem Inhalt: Weiches Sonnenlicht Seitenlicht Reflektiertes Licht Gegenlicht Goldene Stunde Lichter der Stadt Spot Blendenflecke Schlagschatten-Licht Flutlicht Aufhelllicht Umhüllendes Licht Licht mit unvollständigem Spektrum Zeitraffer-Licht u.v.m. Werfen Sie zusammen mit einem Weltklasse-Profi einen Blick hinter die Kulissen und erfahren Sie, wie eindrucksvolle Aufnahmen von der Konzeption bis zur Aufnahme entstehen. Schöpfen Sie die einzigartigen Qualitäten sämtlicher Lichtarten aus – ein regnerischer, grauer Morgen kann mit dem richtigen Ansatz genauso ausdrucksstark sein wie ein goldener Sonnenuntergang. Verbessern Sie Ihre Fähigkeiten und schärfen Sie Ihr Verständnis, um schnell und effektiv mit der richtigen Technik auf den richtigen Licht-Typ zu reagieren. Genießen Sie Seite für Seite voller inspirierender Bilder und Illustrationen – alle untermalt mit praktischen und technischen Informationen sowie professionellen Ratschlägen. Professionelle Fotografen jagen ständig nach Licht, warten, helfen nach und nehmen Bilder auf – zuweilen bis zur Besessenheit. Michael Freeman arbeitet schon seit vier Jahrzehnten mit Licht und zeigt hier einen einfachen, aber praktischen Ansatz, das wichtigste Gut der Fotografie zu interpretieren, darauf zu reagieren und es aufzunehmen. Diese praktischen Ratschläge teilen sich in drei Abschnitte: Warten, Jagen und Nachhelfen. Üben Sie sich zunächst in der Kunst der Geduld und erkennen Sie den unermesslichen Wert, Licht vorhersehen und damit planen zu können, obwohl es den Horizont noch nicht erreicht hat. Lernen Sie, wie Sie flüchtigen, vergänglichen Lichtsituationen begegnen und sie beherrschen, schnell denken und schnell reagieren. Nutzen Sie schließlich die Werkzeuge, die Ihnen zur Verfügung stehen, um das vorhandene Licht zu verstärken und zu manipulieren – von den Optionen vor Ort bis hin zu den technischen Mitteln der Nachbearbeitung. Mit dieser Methode arbeiten Sie wie ein Profi – Sie finden sich in allen Lichtsituationen zurecht, setzen sie um und kennen sich aus –, um die eine Aufnahme in den Kasten zu bekommen. Über den Autor: Michael Freeman ist ein international bekannter Fotograf und Autor, der sich auf Reise, Architektur und asiatische Kunst spezialisiert hat. Er ist zudem bekannt für seine Expertise bezüglich Special Effects. Er arbeitet für renommierte Magazine wie National Geographic und hat bereits mehr als 20 Fotografie-Bücher verfasst.
