2. Book to the Future - a manifesto for book liberation - Simon Worthington
Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £5.00 - Click book title for availability and further details
The Book Liberation Manifesto is an exploration of publishing outside of current corporate constraints and beyond the confines of book piracy. We believe that knowledge should be in free circulation to benefit humankind, which means an equitable and vibrant economy to support publishing, instead of the prevailing capitalist hand-me-down system of Sisyphean economic sustainability. Readers and books have been forced into pirate libraries, while sales channels have been monopolised by the big Internet giants which exact extortionate fees from publishers. We have three proposals. First, publications should be free-at-the-point-of-reading under a variety of open intellectual property regimes. Second, they should become fully digital - in order to facilitate ready reuse, distribution, algorithmic and computational use. Finally, Open Source source software for publishing should be treated as public infrastructure, with sustained research and investment. The result of such robust infrastructures will mean lower costs for manufacturing and faster publishing lifecycles, so that publishers and publics will be more readily able to afford to invent new futures

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £22.99 - Click book title for availability and further details
Do you ever think the grass must be greener somewhere else? Well, you're not alone. Too many people leave their jobs because something is wrong, or something is missing. They leave physically, by walking out the door. Or, they leave psychologically, by withdrawing their energy and commitment but staying put. And later, many regret their departures (of both kinds). What if there were another option? What if it were possible to achieve or regain love for your work? (And we do mean love, not just like.) What if your work were something you looked forward to each day? What if it tapped your enthusiasm? Used your creativity? Made you feel appreciated? (Are you thinking, "Fat chance?") But, really, what if work could truly deliver the goods? We think it can .... Think of this book as a maintenance manual for working adults seeking to tune up a significant portion of their waking lives. We invite you to return to it again and again. Dog-ear the corners; highlight the ideas that hit home. We wrote it because we truly believe you can get more of what you want right where you are.
8. Reset Changing the Way We Look at Video Games (Large Print 16pt) - Rusel DeMaria
Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £26.99 - Click book title for availability and further details
As your son or daughter would no doubt put it, Rusel DeMaria 'gets it.' He combines an insider's understanding of how the games industry works, a fan's vantage point on what's exciting about this emerging medium, a concerned citizen's perspective on the social and educational impacts of games culture, and a visionary's take on where this might all be leading. It's a potent combination - all the more so because he pulls it off with common sense and accessible, even engaging prose. This is a book parents and educators should read before they make any final judgments about the place of games in the lives of young Americans, and young people should read Reset if they are looking for arguments about why playing games doesn't rot the brain.''

10. Share This! (Large Print 16pt) - Deanna Zandt
Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99 - Click book title for availability and further details
Shows how both activists and the casually progressive can leverage the power of social networks for social change Helps readers maintain credibility, establish new connections, deal with common fears, and have a good time Authoritative but aggressively non-technical - like talking to a real person with a great sense of humor who really knows her stuff Social networks can be so much more than a way to find your high school friends or learn what your favorite celebrity had for breakfast. They can be powerful tools for changing the world. With Share This! both regular folks of a progressive bent and committed activists can learn how to go beyond swapping movie reviews and vacation photos (not that theres anything wrong with that).At the moment the same kinds of people who dominate the dialog off-line are dominating it online, and things will never change if that doesnt change. Progressives need to get on social networks and share their stories, join conversations, connect with others - and not just others exactly like themselves. Its vital to reach out across all those ethnic/gender/preference/class/age lines that exist even within the progressive camp. As Deanna Zandt puts it, ''creating a just society is sort of like the evolution of the species - if you have a bunch of the same DNA mixing together the species mutates poorly and eventually dies off.''But there are definitely dos and donts. Zandt delves into exactly what people are and are not looking for in online exchanges. How to be a good guest. What to share. Why authenticity is more important than just about anything, including traditional notions of expertise or authority. She addresses some common fears, like worrying about giving too much about yourself away, blurring the lines between your professional and personal life, or getting buried under a steaming heap of information overload. And she offers detailed, nuts-and bolts ''how to get started'' advice for both individuals and organizations. The Internet is upending hierarchies and freeing the flow of information in a way that makes the invention of the printing press seem like an historical footnote. Share This! shows how to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to make marginalized voices heard and support real, fundamental change - and, incidentally, have some fun doing it.
