A Simple Guide to Popular Physics
A Simple Guide - Synopsis. One of the most brilliant and well-known scientists of all time, Albert Einstein, said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." Tony Harris proves with this concise guide that he does understand his subject matter very well indeed. The book he has written will inspire a whole new generation of scientists - a generation that will span all age groups.A Simple Guide to Popular Physics does exactly what the title promises - it delves into the mind-boggling world of particles, quantum physics and cosmology in a clear and user-friendly way. Inspired by Professor Brian Cox's statement that his simple action of rubbing a diamond between his hands had altered every electron in the entire universe, Tony Harris took it upon himself to delve further into the subject, exploring Pauli's Exclusion Principle - the principle that no two electrons can be in the same quantum state in atoms - that Professor Cox had been introducing to the millions of people watching his TV presentation. Intrigued and, by his own admission, more than a little sceptical, Tony researched the principle and revised his own understanding of it, realising that by questioning Professor Cox's statement, he had increased his knowledge base substantially. And that is what led to this book.Have you ever asked yourself why, if the atoms that make up all matter consist mainly of empty space, structures don't collapse and you don't fall through your living room floor? Are you fascinated by the relativity between time and space? Perhaps you've wondered whether antimatter really exists, and if so, where is it? Where does it come from? Is it capable of existance as we understand the word? Is our reality even real?Tony Harris answers these questions and many more with this book, breaking concepts down into simple components and explaining each in user-friendly terms. Whatever your age, this concise guide will provide you with the background and the confidence you need to find out more, whether it be about the very tiny - particle physics and quantum mechanics - or the unimaginable massive, such as cosmology and the Big Bang.A Simple Guide is here to whet your appetite. It aims to give you a broad overview of the basics of particles, quantum physics and cosmology, introducing you to experiments conducted by some of the greatest scientists the world has known along with the work they have done. Armed with this solid grounding, you will then be in a good position to expand your knowledge, just like Tony did himself, and maybe even conduct the experiments yourself to observe the results first hand.The wonderful world of science is accessible to everyone. A Simple Guide provides the grounding; all you need to add is an enquiring mind.

Fads Marketing
This isn't another book about advertising. It's an inside look at how companies count on your obsession with food, alcohol, drugs and sex to drive behavior modification-permanently. It's not enough to build a better Super Bowl commercial (sorry, but true); the new end game is about changing your entire mindset. Consultant to the brands that define our digital lifestyles, Tony Harris holds nothing back while explaining how FADS have become so relevant in a technology-enabled world. With straight-faced candor, he explains that humans are easily manipulated and marketers know it. That's why the FADS that drive us wild say we're fat, we're no fun, we need to relax, and we'll probably die alone. Anything to get you hooked on the next pea-protein, no whip, grown-in-the-lab latte. Spend 10 minutes with Tony Harris and you'll walk away knowing ten things you didn't know before you met him. By the time you finish FADS MARKETING, you'll have new insights about: Food: What marketers know about food-related trigger points; the five senses and stuffing our faces; specialty foods for special consumers. Alcohol: Why booze and the law is a match made in hell; mainstream alcohol marketing featuring weirdos; everyone's doing it (selling alcohol). Drugs: Marketers know we love a quick fix; yes, you are depressed; the Cannabis revolution. Sex: Marketers know everyone fears rejection; you're gross, no sex for you; who needs 'live nude girls' when you've got sex robots? Each chapter features expert interviews and wraps with Harris' predictions for what's coming next. Anyone who's worked with him won't be surprised to see that some of them are already happening. The only question left is, what book is coming next from Harris himself, and who's the target?

The Legacy of Cornelius Cardew
Cornelius Cardew is an enigma. Depending on which sources one consults he is either an influential and iconic figure of British musical culture or a marginal curiosity, a footnote to a misguided musical phenomenon. He is both praised for his uncompromising commitment to world-changing politics, and mocked for being blindly caught up in a maelstrom of naïve political folly. His works are both widely lauded as landmark achievements of the British avant-garde and ridiculed as an archaic and irrelevant footnote to the established musical culture. Even the events of his death are shrouded in mystery and lack a sense of closure. As long ago as 1967, Morton Feldman cited Cardew as an influential figure, central to the future of modern music-making. The extent to which Cardew has been a central figure and a force for new ideas in music forms the backbone to this book. Harris demonstrates that Cardew was an original thinker, a charismatic leader, an able facilitator, and a committed activist. He argues that Cardew exerted considerable influence on numerous individuals and groups, but also demonstrates how the composer's significance has been variously underestimated, undermined and misrepresented. Cardew's diverse body of work and activity is here given coherence by its sharing in the values and principles that underpinned the composer's world view. The apparently disparate and contradictory episodes of Cardew's career are shown to be fused by a cohesive 'Cardew aesthetic' that permeates the man, his politics and his music.
