Documents Of Life 2

Documents of Life was originally published in 1983 and became a classic text, providing both a persuasive argument for a particular approach and a manifesto for social research. As a critique of anti-humanist methodology in the social sciences, it championed the use of life stories and other personal documents in research which are now widely used today. This book is a substantially revised and expanded version which takes on recent developments. Providing numerous illustrations from a range of life documents, the book traces the history of the method, examines ways of 'doing life story' research, and discusses the many political and ethical issues raised by such research. The whole book has been substantially re-written and updated, and there are four wholly new chapters. These look at the wider emergence of an auto/biographical society; writing and narrative; memory and truth; and humanism. Whilst the original book argued for more life stories in social research, this book senses a major celebration and proliferation of the method over the past twenty years. At the same time. in the wake of postmodernism, feminist and queer writings, the writing of a life can never again be a simple exercise in 'telling it like it is'. Plummer's new book confronts these new concerns head on, whilst restating his strong commitment to the methodologies of humanism. Passionate and unashamedly partisan, this is no ordinary 'methods text'. Even more than its predecessor, it sees the research process as social, moral, and political at every stage. Like the earlier book, Documents of Life 2 is written in an easy and engaging style which should make it equally accessible to first year undergraduates and much more advanced graduate scholars across a range of social science disciplines.

Having traversed life through all the agony and the ecstasy for over five decades, this book is enriched by the fascinating experiences of all those years in the life of Rajendra Khandelwal. Life taught him great lessons-some bitter, some joyous. And through all of them, he gained deep insights into life and learnt to celebrate life. It was necessary to share those insights with the world around him so that anyone who cared to listen to his voice would gain a treasury of truths and be inspired to also learn how to celebrate life in its many splendored hues. The turning point came when he met the soul-stirring guru of simple philosophy and spirituality, Robin Sharma, who in one of his lectures abroad rewarded him with a hug and his book Who Will Cry When You Die? That moment stayed with him and will stay with him through the rest of his life. It was also the moment he felt pushed to put down his own experiences in a book, which is now in your hands.


Old School Simple

RRP $15.99

Krish Sailam takes a macro-level view of how technology is potentially slowing down small business. There are too many "game changers" and too much noise from experts, and there is not enough time in the day to keep up with every new technology that comes out. You have a business to run, and it is my job to save you time and more importantly money with your technology decisions. Old School Simple helps you find a starting point. Old School Simple explores three main themes: How to decide if a technology is relevant to your business and will increase revenue or decrease costs. How to create goals around implementing technology. How to create actionable metrics to measure your success. The point of the book is that if you had a choice to spend $1000 a month on technology that you didn't fully understand or didn't have time for, versus $1000 a month making your core product better, the decision to invest in your product is always a better bet. But if you have to implement a new technology, I want you as a business owner to define a goal, and a metric. The book provides guides on finding technology help, defining tangible goals, and measuring your success. Talk to any expert in SEO, social media, paid search, or app development and they will all agree it is nearly a full-time job to stay on top of new technology every day. As a small business owner, your core job is to create amazing products and services. Not to know every new technology that comes out. If you do find a technology that is relevant to your business and your customers are asking for it, Old School Simple gives you guidance to find technology and creative help. Old School Simple is not a book to learn about Facebook, Twitter, or the latest social network. It is a book about finding connections between your revenue model and these new technologies. The chapters are rich with examples, diagrams, sample guides, and quick summaries. Hopefully, it becomes a book you love to share with and recommend to other small business owners. I would love to ask you, my customer, for feedback on how I can make this book better and what other formats you would like to see it in. Please let me know how you implemented or tested these techniques within your own business. Email me at krish@oldschoolsimple.com. Most people are too afraid to ask for feedback, but I have to stay true to my book. Things can always improve, I just need to know what my customer wants. Does the book come up short in any areas? Do the examples need more or less fleshing out? Would you like to submit your small business experience as an example? Any and all feedback is much appreciated. I see this as a living project that will continue to evolve over time, though the basic principles will stay the same. Technology must support the core revenue stream, not just take up time. Thanks for purchasing and recommending my book."
