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?

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.

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 !

(Applause Books). What Were They Thinking: Carrie, from Book to Movie to Musical is an intensely personal chronicle, tracking Lawrence Cohen's almost four-decade history with Stephen King's classic fable, from reading the manuscript in 1973 while a reader for producer David Susskind, to writing the screenplay for the classic 1976 Brian de Palma film, from deciding to turn it into a musical (1984) to the controversial Royal Shakespeare Company and legendary Broadway production that crashed and burned (1988), to collaborating on its rebirth and resurrection Off-Broadway for MCC Theater in 2012. Rarely has a theatrical account been so first person and insider based-naming names, telling never-before-told stories, and revealing what its creators were thinking. Passionate and visceral, it provides a highly informative and educational behind-the-scenes look into just how musicals are written and put together. How did a show that even its harshest critic, Frank Rich, admitted "was a workable idea for a musical" and Ken Mandelbaum argued was "salvageable" go so far off track? How did an Oscar-winning composer and lyricist, plus the award-nominated screenwriter of the original film, mess up so badly? How did a musical that the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company chose as its follow-up to Les Miserables become such a train wreck? What were they thinking? Follow the journey from its inception to its resurrection-thirteen theater award nominations; an award for Best Revival; the release of a long-awaited cast recording; and licensing by Rodgers and Hammerstein allowing Carrie to enter the global theater repertoire. Talk about a miracle and a happy ending.

Ideas are at the heart of our politics. They are the means by which people are influenced and mobilised. Australian politics have been shaped by distinctive patterns of political thought from the colonial period to the Rudd government. But how have these patterns arisen? And what have been their effects on shaping what we think is politically possible or desirable? This book is not a survey of theory but an invigorating history of people trying to make sense of their world, fighting to establish the principles governing the way politics is pursued and justifying their own perspectives. What Were They Thinking? is a compelling story of winners and losers, of individuals interpreting and trying to influence their times, and of how ideas and power are linked.
