House of Redgrave
HK$ 87.00
The Co-op
From the landmark films of Tony Richardson to the untimely death of Natasha Richardson; this is the saga of one of the greatest dynasties in British film and theatre. In 1928; at the end of the production of Hamlet at the Old Vic; Laurence Olivier strode to the front of the stage and announced; pointing at his co-star Michael Redgrave; "Tonight a great actress has been born. Laertes has a daughter." He meant Vanessa Redgrave. That is where this dramatic book's story begins. It concludes in 2009; with the sudden and tragic death of Vanessa's daughter Natasha Richardson; in a skiing accident; and the sorrow soon to follow with the deaths of both Corin and Lynn Redgrave. The story of this amazing family is explosive throughout - from the tangled private life of Tony Richardson; Natasha's father; who directed major films like Joseph Andrews; to Vanessa and Corin's complicated involvement with the Workers' Revolutionary Party; to the emergence of a fourth generation of fine actors with Natasha and Joely. There is truly never a dull moment - but plenty of scandal; melodrama; tragedy and intrigue - in the story of this remarkable dynasty; whose contribution to British drama and film has been immense.

She joined the British army in the Judge Advocates' division as a military lawyer.

Principles of Marketing Engineering
HK$ 453.00
The Co-op
As a profession; marketing is evolving; no longer based almost exclusively on conceptual content. That conceptual content will always have an important role to play in marketing; but the 21st century requires more analysis and rigor in marketing decision making. Much of marketing resembles design engineering - putting together concepts; data; analyses; and simulations to learn about the marketplace and to design effective marketing plans. While many view traditional marketing as art and some view it as science; the new marketing increasingly looks like engineering (that is; combining art and science to solve specific problems). Several key forces are changing the marketer's job: Pervasive high-powered personal computers networked are everywhere.Exploding volumes of data are readily available. Firms are reengineering marketing activities. And those firms are reorganizing more generally; leading to flatter organizations. Marketers need much more than concepts to fully exploit available resources: they need to move from conceptual marketing to marketing engineering. In this book we integrate concepts; analytic marketing techniques; and operational software for training the new generation of marketers; and help them become marketing engineers.

Madness Made Me
HK$ 187.00
The Co-op
After her journey through madness; Mary O'Hagan realized the mental health system and society did more harm than good. Madness Made Me is a myth-busting account of madness and our customary responses to it through the lens of lived experience. O'Hagan's journey took her from the psychiatric hospital to the United Nations and many places in between as a leader in the international mad movement. Her fundamental message is that madness is a profoundly disruptive but full human experience. The trouble is most people don't see it that way; from the experts who make up clever theories about brain disease to the people down the road who have irrational fears about the mentally ill. Madness Made Me is a compelling and beautifully written book that uncovers widespread injustice. It ends with vision for a world that holds hope for people with mental distress and treats them with respect and humanity.

Must-Read Biographies Everyone Should Include into their Personal Collection

Biographies provide a glimpse into the past or capture the life and experiences of an icon, allowing readers to walk in someone else’s shoes. A meaningful biography can serve as a great teacher, offering valuable life lessons and teaching readers to be like the subject or sometimes, not to be like the subject. Fictional stories make for fun reads as well, but nothing is as compelling and inspirational as real-life recollections of one’s life. Noteworthy biography recommendations that everyone should own, or at least read about, are mentioned below.

The book documents significant moments in his life – his childhood, growing up to be a freedom fighter, being imprisoned for 27 years, and his role in building a democratic South Africa.
