    In Punk Marketing, Laermer and Simmons take an irreverent, penetrating look at the seismic change in the relationship between people who sell stuff (products, services, entertainment) and those who purchase it. They demonstrate that to survive in business, a revolutionary approach is needed - one they have branded (you got it) "Punk Marketing". It's one we all need to understand, for the traditional divisions among commerce, content and consumers are continuing to blur ever more rapidly.

    This is a free-flowing conversation between two authors who are intimate with their subject. These guys banter, argue, throw things, and joke about the current state of marketing and an obvious need for a manifesto to REALLY shake things up! In a lively two-hour exchange, the boys of Punk Marketing go at it with verve, gusto, and glee, as they talk through the 15 articles of the manifesto that bolsters their revolution - it's hilarious, irreverent, and timely!

    In this masterful debut, an award-winning writer and first-rate storyteller explores the tenuous bonds of family - fathers and sons, husbands and wives - as they are tested by the sometimes brutal power of love. In each of the stories in this remarkable collection, David James Poissant delivers a moving portrayal of a relationship in turmoil. His strikingly true-to-life characters have reached a precipice, chased there by troubles of their own making. Some stand frightened, some ready to fight. Some seek atonement, others the atonement that is owed them.
