Planking for Pizza

By

Planking for Pizza started with an epiphany: Jessica Pack decided to “start where she was,” and share her true self as the first step in a journey to self-acceptance. To her great surprise, her Instagram selfie posts and blog made her a social media star with followers praising her revelatory approach to becoming whole by accepting every part of herself. She has inspired a throng of fans and readers to follow her example of self-love and self-expression and her writing, photos, and honest posts are an inspiration sensation. As result, Planking for Pizza went on to become series of life lessons every reader can identify with – avoiding the trap of perfectionism, how exercise is 10% physical and 90% mental, overcoming trepidation and embarrassment at the gym by embracing the fear and using it, along with reminders that eating a slice of pizza along the way won’t make you unhealthy. With Jess’s encouraging voice cheering you along (and convincing you to become your own cheerleader, too) you’ll discover what ignites your inner being, what creates mental strength and emotional balance as you reclaim self-worth and confidence.

Author Jessica Pack’s audience expands far beyond her fellow millennials; she is inspiring people from all walks of life, age groups, shapes and sizes. Planking for Pizza is an exploration on how to live life with meaning and mindfulness. What is so winning about Jessica Pack is her regular girl relatability; the book reads like she is your new best friend and, as she says, “If I can do it, you can do it!” She also goes deep with discussion of how to deal with wobbly self-esteem and offers tools to ditch negative self-talk and replace it with tools for empowerment. Author Jess share tips, influences, motivation, advice, and ruminations she developed on her fitness journey. Jess approaches serous topics with a sense of fun and the intention that what worked for her can help readers in their pursuit towards mental and physical health, happiness, and awareness.

The Responsive Chord

By

The essential guide to how media shape our lives. By the creator of the most talked about political ad in television history.

Tony Schwartz, the man the New York Times called the "king of sound," drew on his unrivaled wealth of experience in the communications industry, to give us The Responsive Chord, an engaging read and one of the seminal books on media. Through his decades of work, Schwartz came to understand that most advertisers, politicians, and educators—in fact, most all of us—use a model of communication long outmoded by the coming of electronic media. In The Responsive Chord, he shows us how this model has made us blind to many of the inner workings of modern communication. He explains how audio and visual material can be used to create “resonance” with an audience. His “resonance principle” explains that the meaning of an ad (or any other stimulus) is not present in the ad itself but rather in how the ad relates to the vast array knowledge and associations—both factual and emotional—already held in the mind of the viewer. Thus, audience members do not merely digest a message; they are an essential force in creating it.

The implications for anyone looking to impart a message or influence decisions are enormous.

And with so many people these days getting their information through social media and "fake news" sites, it is crucial that we understand the strong forces by which these outlets act upon us and, yes, manipulate our ideas and actions. The Responsive Chord reveals these forces in a captivating and eye-opening read.

 

“I read The Responsive Chord as a freshman in college and it affected everything I’ve ever made since. Its message is practical and deep. I’d recommend it to anyone.”

— Ira Glass, Creator & Host of NPR’s This American Life

“Tony Schwartz was a genius in his understanding of the communications revolution of the 20th century. My interview with him was one of my favorites and one of the most important of my own long career in broadcast journalism.”

— Bill Moyers, Journalist, Political Commentator and White House Press Secretary

“Tony Schwartz was not only an original theorist but a master persuader whose must-read book is brimming with indispensable insight about how humans construct meaning through media.”

— Prof. Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Director, Annenberg Public Policy Center

“Here's the still-true story about how a media environment can shape our thoughts, our purchases and, yes, our votes. It's not just the content that influences us; if only it were that simple. No, it's the media themselves, the political economy driving them, and the atomizing impact of their targeted messaging. Maybe reading this book will prepare us to think more critically about the way social media is used on, and against us today.”

— Douglas Rushkoff, author, Program or Be Programmed, Present Shock, and Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus

“The Responsive Chord had a profound impact on me when I first read it as a teenager, and it sparked a lifelong interest in the impact of media and technology in education. Re-reading it today, Tony Schwartz's observations about education in a media-saturated environment are deeply prescient and more relevant than ever.”

— Luyen Chou, Chief Product Officer, Pearson Education

"I keep talking to Tony, learning from Tony, practically every day. Radio and audio are Tony’s World. We just live in it.”

 Christopher Lydon, Radio Host of The Connection and Open Source, former New York Times Journalist
