Eveolution


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The first book which explains why all companies need to market to women AND teaches them how to do it. Women are now the primary decision makers or significant influencers in more than 80% of consumer purchasers. And they're not just buying makeup and washing powder and keeping the storecupboard stocked. Women are responsible for 65% of vehicle purchases, 50% of personal computer purchases and also buy a hefty percentage of all luxury items, travel and leisure products. They have emerged as the most influential consumer force in history. But while there are countless books about how women think differently, talk differently and feel differently, this is the first about how they buy or relate to brands differently. Women want to form a bond with the companies and brands they do business with. And they are increasingly in a position to demand this relationship and to punish marketers who fail to deliver it by taking their business to those few enlightened marketers who 'get it' - the ones who are creating brands that women will want to join, not just to buy. Faith Popcorn, leading consumer trend forecaster and consultant to the Fortune 500, calls this growing trend EVEolution and she predicts it will redefine the way companies and brands of all kinds and all categories create profitable and enduring consumer relationships. In this book she demonstrates the operating principles for good marketers, who, when it comes to their female consumers, have been behaving badly, guiding them through the eight truths that will give them the ability to successfully market to women.

Women Talking


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A FINALIST FOR THE GOVERNOR GENERAL'S LITERARY AWARD: A transformative and necessary work--as completely unexpected as it is inspired--by the award-winning author of the bestselling novels All My Puny Sorrows and A Complicated Kindness. The sun rises on a quiet June morning in 2009. August Epp sits alone in the hayloft of a barn, anxiously bent over his notebook. He writes quickly, aware that his solitude will soon be broken. Eight women--ordinary grandmothers, mothers and teenagers; yet to August, each one extraordinary-- will climb the ladder into the loft, and the day's true task will begin. This task will be both simple and subversive: August, like the women, is a traditional Mennonite, and he has been asked to record a secret conversation. Thus begins Miriam Toews' spellbinding novel. Gradually, as we hear the women's vivid voices console, tease, admonish, regale and debate each other, we piece together the reason for the gathering: they have forty-eight hours to make a life-altering choice on behalf of all the women and children in the colony. And like a vast night sky coming into view behind the bright sparks of their voices, we learn of the devastating events that have led to this moment. Acerbic, funny, tender, sorrowful and wise, Women Talking is composed of equal parts humane love and deep anger. It is award-winning writer Miriam Toews' most astonishing novel to date, containing within its two short days and hayloft setting an expansive, timeless universe of thinking and feeling about women--and men--in our contemporary world.

When Others Shuddered: Eight Women Who Refused to Give Up is the story of eight women called to serve God and who, in doing so, changed the world.

These women—Fanny Crosby, Mary McLeod Bethune, Nettie McCormick, Sarah Dunn Clarke, Emma Dryer, Virginia Asher, Evangeline Booth, and Amanda Berry Smith—were unique. They were single and married, black and white, wealthy and poor, beautiful and plain, mothers and childless. Yet, each felt called to make a difference and to do something—to meet a pressing need in her world. These women wanted to live lives less ordinary. Their stories inspire us to follow God’s calling in our own lives. They teach us that each individual person can make a difference. These eight women will show you how God can use your life to change the world.
