Those ignorant of the mistakes of the past are bound to lose a lot of money. That's why Bob McMath founded the New Products Showcase and Learning Center--a "Smithsonian for Stinkers," Business Week dubbed it. There, executives from top corporations pay huge amounts of money to rummage through some 80,000 products gone awry. Their mission: to avoid the misguided, expensive, and occasionally ludicrous mistakes that trip up even top companies. In What Were They Thinking?, McMath shows you how to avoid such mistakes, with more that eighty marketing lessons he's learned from his long experience with clods and clunkers. As People magazine put it "McMath knows his goods--and his uglies, too"--and here he shows you how to: Steer clear of the number one killer of new products (page 129) Develop a marketing campaign based on a "Significant Point of Difference" (page 183) Take advantage of eight "Hot Buttons for Success in the Millennium" (page 101) Keep out of the "Buy-This-If-You're-a-Loser School of Marketing" (page 28) Combat "Corporate Alzheimer's" (page 4) and much more !

Some corporations spend millions of dollars on so-called "crisis communication plans." Others offer lip service, avoiding the subject like the plague. They simply hope for the best, praying that they never face a crisis. Either way, as Steve Adubato says, "Wishful thinking is no substitute for a strategic plan." Nationally recognized communication coach and four-time Emmy Awardûwinning broadcaster Steve Adubato has been teaching, writing, and thinking about comm¡unication, leadership, and crisis communication for nearly two decades. In What Were They Thinking? Adubato examines twenty-two controversial and complex public relations and media mishaps, many of which were played out in public. Among cases and people discussed are: The Johnson & Johnson Tylenol scare: Perhaps the best crisis management ever Don Imus: Sometimes saying "sorry" is too little too late Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales: Authority does not put you above questioning Bill O'Reilly: Know when to stop defending yourself and save face Former EPA Administrator Christie Whitman: Proof that your written words can come back to haunt you Hurricane Katrina: A natural disaster that led to a larger governmental disaster The Catholic Church's pedophilia scandal: Denial won't get rid of the skeletons in your closet Arranged in short chapters detailing each case individually, the book provides a brief history of the topics and answers the questions: Who got it right? Who got it wrong? What can the rest of us learn from them?

After her carefully ordered world imploded, Paige Taylor cracks up. On her tenth self-help book, it seemed like a good idea at the time to reinvent herself—move from Manhattan to the tiny beachside town of St. Clair—and take over the local bookstore. But instead of discovering her spiritual Nirvana, she’s neck-deep in a floundering business, the locals treat her like a plague victim, and her mom’s suddenly decided to visit—with no end in sight—and keeps coming home with one surprise after the next. Added to that pot of crazy, the one guy who sets her pulse racing has sworn off women forever. He’s got a Samsonite filled with baggage, but damn he looks good hauling it down the street. And giving her those sexy half-smiles. And tempting her to take him for a test ride. Soon Paige discovers that reinventing herself takes more than just a change of address and a pithy quote on Instagram. She needs to face the truth about her life, and that’s something she can’t do alone.

What Were You Thinking? . . . . . . Eve, as you tasted the forbidden fruit? . . . Sapphira, as you lied about the money? . . . Mrs. Lot, as you glanced back at Sodom? . . . Hannah, as you left Samuel with Eli? . . . Martha, as you tattled on Mary? What were these women thinking?

In these pages you will meet thirteen Bible-time women through a casual visit in a contemporary, small-group setting. Interviews with these women bring their previously black-and-white lives into vivid, living color as you get to know them more personally and begin to feel their heartstrings tug a familiar pull on your own.

Cheryl Elliott lives in Seymour, just southeast of Knoxville, Tennessee, where she worships and serves in the Woodlawn Christian Church as a women's Sunday school teacher and women's ministry team leader. Widowed in 2008, Cheryl is the mother of two sons and one daughter-all young adults who live nearby-and is the grandmother of a two-year-old granddaughter whom she enjoys spoiling.

One of God's original instructions to us is to teach His word to our children and grandchildren. We are to pass our faith and knowledge of the Word of God to each generation. He expects us to teach the truth about America's founding and His involvement in it. It is clearly obvious by our current culture that we have not been faithful to do this; therefore we have lost influence on our culture. How can we teach what we do not know and model?What Were They Thinking? - On Life, Liberty & Legacy was written for the purpose of educating Christians by giving them the information they need to teach their children/grandchildren biblical worldview, America's true history, and our biblical system of government. "What Were They Thinking?" pulls all the elements together in one easy to understand read. Armed with this information you will be able to fully engage in the battle for the heart and soul of our nation and ultimately the church. Once the body of Christ is educated & thinking in agreement with God's word we can change the culture of the nation and secure liberty for all. This is the book every Christian home should have. We must be equipped to train the next generation in order to change the culture and secure the future of America. It will take three generations being in agreement to bring the change needed to secure the future.Had we been faithful to intentionally teach these things to each generation we would not be a nation in decline. What Were They Thinking? makes it simple for us to repent and begin to do what past generations have failed to do! Now is the time to commit to engage in this battle and bring unity to the body of Christ.
