Here's how it works: you read a book, you recommend it to a friend. That friend tells another friend. And another... until the book becomes this year's word-of-mouth sensation. This is the first to analyze the power of the 'pass-it-on' phenomenon, introducing us to the architects of the mightily efficient, money-spinning model known as the Viral Loop - the secret behind some of the most successful businesses in recent history. Outfits such as Google, eBay, Flickr and Facebook all employ the model at their core; all have seen their stock valuations skyrocket within years of forming. The genius lies in the model's reliance on replication: what's the point of using Facebook if none of your friends can see your profile, or using Flickr if you can't share your photos? Where's the joy in posting a video on YouTube if no one watches it? Thus, in creating a viral product that people want, need and desire, growth can, and will, take care of itself. Find out why the Loop will catch us all up, sooner rather than later...

The first reference book to provide a detailed account of the Pyroceram*R cookware, developed at Corning by Donald Stookey and marketed in 1958. This special Pyroceram*R material was first used on military missile nose cones, and because of its durability, it was felt to be a great medium for the kitchen, too. Easily taken from the freezer, used in the oven, microwave, or on the range, it was beautiful enough to be served at the table. After a meal, it went straight to the dishwasher. The cookware saved many steps for the consumer. 60 plus patterns are listed and shown in over 400 color photos. Reprints of catalogs, brochures, and historical material, and a detailed bibliography provide much additional information. All information was carefully compiled from original catalogs and reprints, company brochures, trade journals, company advertising, auction lists, eBay, and the shared extensive experience of many dedicated dealers and collectors. An index gives easy access to material.
In recent years antique silver toys have increasingly become recognised as a sound investment and - unlike stocks and shares - there is no reason why they should ever drop in value. This in itself makes the publication of Investing in Antique Silver Toys and Miniatures a timely event. But there is so much more to the collecting of silver miniatures, not only for their aesthetic value but for their very human interest and intriguing history; relatively few people are aware of how they came about and little is still known about the makers of these extraordinary toys. William G. Jackman's book, the product of the author's personal passion for collecting silver toys and miniatures, is not only a fascinating history of silver toy-making from the seventeenth century up until the present day, but charts the story of doll's houses - or baby houses as they were originally known - showing how they were first developed for the children of royalty in England, France and Holland. Ilustrated with 110 photos of silver toys, many from the author's own collection, with full details on their purchase price at auction, Investing in Antique Silver Toys and Miniatures will not only serve as a wonderful introduction to the subject for those interested in finding out more, but as a valuable guide for those collecting at auction, either online (on for instance, eBay) or in traditional auction houses such as Christie's.
