Whether a marketing campaign or a museum exhibit, a video game or a complex control system, the design we see is the culmination of many concepts and practices brought together from a variety of disciplines. Because no one can be an expert on everything, designers have always had to scramble to find the information and know-how required to make a design work—until now.

Universal Principles of Design, Revised and Updated is a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary encyclopedia of design. Richly illustrated and easy to navigate, it pairs clear explanations of every design concept with visual examples of the concepts applied in practice. From the "80/20” rule to chunking, from baby-face bias to Occam’s razor, and from self-similarity to storytelling, every major design concept is defined and illustrated for readers to expand their knowledge.

This landmark reference will become the standard for designers, engineers, architects, and students who seek to broaden and improve their design expertise.

Coming Clean: A MemoirComing Clean: A Memoir by Kimberly Rae Miller

Genre(s): Biographies & Memoirs

Kim Miller is an immaculately put-together woman with a great career, a loving boyfriend, and a tidy apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. You would never guess that Kim grew up behind the closed doors of her family’s idyllic Long Island house, navigating between teetering stacks of aging newspapers, broken computers, and boxes upon boxes of unused junk festering in every room—the product of her father’s painful and unending struggle with hoarding.

In this moving coming-of-age story, Kim brings to life her rat-infested home, her childhood consumed by concealing her father’s shameful secret from friends, and the emotional burden that ultimately led to an attempt to take her own life. And in beautiful prose, Miller sheds light on her complicated yet loving relationship with her parents that has thrived in spite of the odds.

Coming Clean is a story about recognizing where we come from and the relationships that define us—and about finding peace in the homes we make for ourselves.

55 Top Hits - Workout Mixes 55 Top Hits – Workout Mixes by Power Music Workout

Genre(s): Dance & Electronic

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
Just to give you an idea of my musical type… I listen to rock (disturbed, sliptknot, Korn) most of the time. However, I have found those albums to be less then desirable while running marathons. So I looked into some more upbeat music. I will tell you that I spent a few hours previewing diff albums for workout/running/etc, and they were all either too techno or to R&B, if that makes any sense. Most are more hip hop remixed, then R&B.

This album has songs that are catchy alone, and remixes them so they have a BPM of 125-140, perfect for long distant training. Although you would not catch me listening to them in my car, I absolutely love the songs while running. I can kinda sing/dance to them and take my mind off the pain!

Best one I found on Amazon for sure!! I loved 95% of the songs!

How Winning Works: 8 Essential Leadership Lessons from the Toughest Teams on EarthHow Winning Works: 8 Essential Leadership Lessons from the Toughest Teams on Earth by Robyn Benincasa

Genre(s): Management & Leadership

Robyn Benincasa has made an art form of extreme performance by competing and winning at the highest levels of sport and business. In her fifteen-year career as a professional adventure racer, she has biked through jungles in Borneo, climbed Himalayan giants in Nepal, trekked across lava fields in Fiji, rafted rapids in Chile—and racked up multiple world championship titles along the way. In her spare time, she is a firefighter and a sought-after keynote speaker on the subject of teamwork and leadership.

In How Winning Works, Benincasa shows you how to climb to new levels of professional and personal success. She shares the eight essential elements of teamwork, learned through her extreme adventure racing, that create synergy with all the teammates in your life, from colleagues and customers to family members and friends:

Total Commitment
Empathy and Awareness
Adversity Management
Mutual Respect
“We” Thinking
Ownership of the Project
Relinquishment of Ego
Kinetic Leadership

This field guide to success shares the same training tools and exercises that have become wildly popular in the leadership seminars Benincasa gives to corporations, including Starbucks, Deloitte Consulting, 3M, Verizon, Nestlé, Boeing and many others. Stories from her adventure racing also illustrate how winning teams interact under the world’s most extreme conditions, from jungles to mountain peaks.

Whether you’re trying to beat the competition to market with a new product, scale a looming mountain of deadlines or simply get your kids to clean up their rooms, the advice in this book will take you on an adventure you’ll never forget, and coach you over the finish line to success.

Songs About Jane Songs About Jane by Maroon 5

Genre(s): Pop

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
SONGS ABOUT JANE is sure to become a classic pop/rock album.Released way back in the summer of 2002 its about time fans and radio stations alike have finally taken notice to this great album. The first single HARDER TO BREATHE, was just a tip of the iceberg and if you like variety, you have found the right album. The second single, THIS LOVE, blends pop, with rock and dance and is a song that you cant help singing and dancing along with. There are also ballads to choose from as well and I would look for either MUST GET OUT or SHE WILL BE LOVED to be possible single choices sometime in the near future.
Other standout tracks on the album include SUNDAY MORNING, THROUGH WITH YOU & THE SUN with each track on the album sounding distinctly differant.
There are definate R & B/funk influences all over this album and will all of the rap songs and R & B ballads taking over the pop charts these days, it is very refreshing to hear a group like Maroon 5 and songs like HARDER TO BREATHE and THIS LOVE getting significant play at radio.
Buy this album today and be prepared to sing and dance all day and make sure you catch them live when they come to a town near you.

Hidden (A Bone Secrets Novel)Hidden (A Bone Secrets Novel) by Kendra Elliot

Genre(s): Romantic Suspense

Eleven years ago, the Co-ed Slayer murdered nine female students on the Oregon State University campus. Lacey Campbell barely escaped his attack, but lost her best friend whose remains were never found. As the sole surviving victim, Lacey helped send the sadistic serial killer to prison for life.

Now a forensic odontologist examining teeth and bones for the state Medical Examiner, Lacey is devastated when she arrives at a crime scene and identifies the skeletal remains as her college friend’s.

The remains are discovered on the land of ex-cop Jack Harper. Sparks fly between him and Lacey, even as they realize that the prosecution’s witnesses from a decade ago are now being murdered one by one. All the evidence points to the Co-ed Slayer as the culprit—only, he’s long since dead. So who’s the new killer? And is Lacey next in line to die?

Golden Heart finalist Kendra Elliot combines chilling suspense and steamy romance in a gripping tale, uniting in-depth forensic knowledge with a passion for thrillers. Set in the snowy winter of Oregon, Hidden creates spine-tingling chills.

Cherry Tree Cherry Tree by The National

Genre(s): Rock, Alternative Rock

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
Cherry Tree has a very different feel from the most recent release ‘Alligator’. It is quieter, is full of violins and kind’ve brings back memories of Dire Straits ‘making moves’ on ‘All Dolled up In Straps’. With the exception of the last track on this EP all the other songs are very good with ‘Cherry Tree’ being the neatest and artiest song.
