Today's a holiday in Canada and what better way to celebrate it than to give you guys a bunch of free books. Yup, we're opening the vaults here at Surprise Central, and don't worry, these are all of the downloadable type, so no waits, no shipping charges and no taxes. So, as the legendary Bob Barker useta say, "Whatta we have for them, Johnny?"
Well, first up is my Australian friend Adam Lawrence of Work.Play.Experience blog fame. An "experience designer" (note to self: find a way to use that superb title somewhere somehow), Adam has written an ebook called 12 Showbusiness Tools for Your Business, which teaches how to bring some Hollywood (or the Aussie equivalent) flash to the exec suites. You can get it by clicking here.
Next is Dan Ward, of Project Blue Lynx. Dan is working on a book (and ain't we all?) called The Simplicity Cycle, and as a sneak preview, he sent me his Change This manifesto of the same name. he asked me for my cents, so let's just say that I thought it more than good enough to pass along to y'all. Enjoy it by clicking here.
And last, and certainly not least, is one I actually put my two cents into. It's yet another do-good/feel-good project from Drew McLellan of Drew's Marketing Minute (he and Gavin Heaton are also about to release The Age Of Conversation, so stay tuned for more details on that collaborative effort). Drew rounded up about a whack of us blogger types, and asked us for our advice for the planet's 2007 Graduating Class as they embark on "their first real job hunt." The result is a free ebook kinda called A Fighting Chance. Click once and get it here.
Along with my diatribe, you'll read sage wisdom from the likes of:
Roger von Oech
Tony D. Clark
So there--a little link love and a lot of respect. Enjoy 'em all!
