This huge international bestseller, fully revised for non-American readers, is now in ebook. Last Child in the Woods shows how our children have become increasingly alienated and distant from nature, why this matters, and what we can do to make a difference. It is unsentimental, rigorous and utterly original. 'A cri de coeur for our children' Guardian Camping in the garden, riding bikes through the woods, climbing trees, collecting bugs, picking wildflowers, running through piles of autumn leaves... These are the things childhood memories are made of. But for a whole generation of today's children the pleasures of a free-range childhood are missing, and their indoor habits contribute to epidemic obesity, attention-deficit disorder, isolation and childhood depression. This timely book shows how our children have become increasingly alienated and distanced from nature, why this matters and how we can make a difference. Last Child in the Woods is a clarion call, brilliantly written, compelling and irresistibly persuasive - a book that will change minds and lives.

Population aging is a powerful megatrend affecting many countries around the world. This demographic shift has vast effects on societies, economies and businesses, and thus also for the advertising industry. Advertising in the Aging Society presents insights from a large-scale content analysis as well as questionnaire surveys among advertising practitioners and consumers in Japan. As the most aged society in the world, Japan lends itself as particularly suitable to study the implications of population aging. This book shows that older people, and especially older women, are highly underrepresented in advertising and are generally portrayed in stereotypical, albeit not necessarily unfavorable ways. This is despite the fact that advertising practitioners have a generally positive view towards using older models, even though only for an older target audience. Finally the book explore how both younger and older consumers perceive the representation of older people in advertising as stereotypical and partly negative, and are willing to boycott companies portraying older people negatively.

These stories are based on Mary Kiki Wilcox's 12 years of volunteer work in the health center of her senior community, where she takes recorded music, on a CD player, to the residents in the Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities. They listen together, as a group, in their weekly "Mostly Music” sessions, or individually, in their rooms. She has a wide selection of music to share, ranging from classical to popular standards and show tunes. Her listeners talk-about whatever comes, whatever moves them. What Mary sees in the faces of her neighbors as they listen to the music, and what they choose to talk about, touch her deeply. These people become her friends.

"The Sorrows of young Werther is a loosely autobiographical novel first published in 1774. It was Goethe's first major success. The majority of the novel is presented as a collection of letters written by Werther, a young artist of a highly sensitive and passional temperment, and sent to his friend Wilhelm. Werther gives a very intimate account of his stay in the fictional village of Walheim where he meets and falls in love with Lotte, a beautiful girl who is taking care of her siblings following the death of their mother. Lotte is engaged to a man named Albert. Despite the pain it causes Werther he cultivates a friendship with both of them. Each day serves as a torturing reminder that Lotte will never be able to requite his love"--Page 4 of cover.
