Das Bild, dass die Menschen von einem Konzern, einem Politiker oder einem Superstar haben, ist mit der wichtigste Faktor für deren Erfolg. Aus diesem Grund geben diese ein Vermögen für PR-Berater aus, spenden Gelder für wohltätige Zwecke oder unterstützen die Armen. Sie wollen eine Illusion, eine Vorstellung erschaffen, die sympathisch, erfolgreich und zuverlässig erscheint. Doch wenn man sich diese Bilder einmal genauer betrachtet, fällt dieses Kartenhaus meist sehr schnell in sich zusammen. Genauso haben wir als Gesellschaft ganz bestimmte Vorstellungen und Bilder von uns und unseren Institutionen. Die Kirche steht für das Gute, unsere Institutionen für Sicherheit und Erfolg, Politiker für eine neue Zukunft. Wir glauben zwar eine moderne und zivilisierte Gesellschaft zu sein, aber schon immer wurde diese "Zivilisation" mit den barbarischsten Mitteln verbreitet. Wir predigen Moral, Vernunft und Gemeinsamkeit, doch unser Verhalten entspricht dem in keiner Weise. Wir verstecken unsere Grausamkeit hinter der Moral, unsere Habgier hinter Wohltätigkeitsveranstaltungen und Benefizkonzerten. Wir sind so damit beschäftigt, unsere Fehler und Schwächen zu verstecken, dass wir gar nicht mehr erkennen können, wer wir eigentlich sind. Warum das so ist, und wie wir aus diesen Teufelskreisen ausbrechen können, darum geht es in diesem Buch. Aber Vorsicht, denn alles was ich hier anzubieten habe ist die Wahrheit! Und diese kann für eine "moderne Zivilisation" äußerst unangenehm werden.

Imagine a night when you can ride your bike right up the stairs to your bed. Imagine a night when your toy train rumbles on its tracks out of your room and roars back in, full sized, ready for you to hop on for a nighttime adventure. Imagine a night when a farmer plays a lullaby on his fiddle, and his field of sunflowers begins to dip and sway to the rhythm. Imagine a night when ordinary objects magically become extraordinary...a night when it is possible to believe the impossible. With the intrigue of an Escher drawing and the richness of a Chris Van Allsburg painting, renowned Canadian artist Rob Gonsalves depicts that delicious time between sleep and wakefulness, creating a breathtaking, visual exploration of imagination and possibility that will encourage both children and adults to think past the boundaries of everyday life, and see the possibilities beyond.

Until now, the true story of John Lennon's childhood has never been told. John's sister Julia has herself been on a personal journey that has made it possible only now to reveal the full extent of the pain and difficulties - as well as the happier times - living inside John Lennon's family brought. Julia reveals the various strong, self-willed and selfish women who surrounded John as he grew up. John was removed from his mother at the age of 5 to live with his Aunt Mimi, and here Julia shows for the first time the cruelty of this decision - to both mother and son, she sheds a new light on his upbringing with Mimi which is often at dramatic odds with the accepted tale. John's frequent visits to his mother and sisters gave him the liveliness, freedom and love he sought and allowed him to develop his musical talents. The tragic death of their mother, knocked down outside Aunt Mimi's house by a speeding car when John was 17, meant that life for him and his sisters would never be the same again. Poignant, raw and beautifully written, IMAGINE THIS casts John Lennon's life in a new light and reveals the source of his emotional fragility and musical genius. It is also one family's extraordinary story of how it dealt with fame and tragedy beyond all imagining.

"Tom Peters ist zornig, stinksauer und er hat die Nase voll. Gestrichen! Wenn er könnte, würde er uns rütteln und schütteln, damit wir endlich in den Quark kommen und handeln, statt nur zu reden. Re-imagine! ist ein Füllhorn von Ideen, Meinungen, Zitaten, Beispielen und Tipps für eine bessere Businesswelt. Jenseits vom Mittelmaß, jenseits selbstzufriedener Manager, jenseits von Strukturen, die Innovation und Veränderung ausbremsen. Eine Businesswelt, die Fantasie, Fehlerfreudigkeit, Neugier, Schnelligkeit, Verantwortlichkeit und Wertschätzung nicht nur erlaubt, sondern fordert. Die broschierte Neuausgabe enthält ein neues Vorwort von Peters und verzichtet auf das bunte und schrille Design der Originalausgabe. Inhaltlich sind beide Ausgaben – auch in der deutschen ÜberSetzung von Nikolas Bertheau – identisch."
