<p><b>How one man corrected hundreds of modern misquotations infecting the Internet, our books, and our minds.</b></p><p>Everywhere you look, you’ll find viral quotable wisdom attributed to icons ranging from Abraham Lincoln to Mark Twain, from Cicero to Woody Allen. But more often than not, these attributions are false.</p><p>Garson O’Toole—the Internet’s foremost investigator into the dubious origins of our most repeated quotations, aphorisms, and everyday sayings—collects his efforts into a first-ever encyclopedia of corrective popular history. Containing an enormous amount of original research, this delightful compendium presents information previously unavailable to readers, writers, and scholars. It also serves as the first careful examination of what causes misquotations and how they spread across the globe.</p><p>Using the massive expansion in online databases as well as old-fashioned gumshoe archival digging, O’Toole provides a fascinating study of our modern abilities to find and correct misinformation. As Carl Sagan did <i>not</i> say, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”</p>

Marketing is no longer effective when comprised of one-off events, messages or campaigns. The buying experience during a<br />complex sale must be fluid, connected and engaging across its entirety. Content marketing programs are the threads that weave together to create a fabric of engagement that elevates pipeline velocity, putting salespeople in viable opportunity conversations sooner—rather than later.<br />There are no stops and starts in a continuum. The flow is consistent, steady and designed to build the problem-to-solution story with buyers by providing the education, expertise and evidence they need to conclude that your company is the ultimate choice to help them achieve business objectives. This eBook is your guide for generating a transformation in marketing, from standalone efforts into strategic business assets that improve revenue performance

Now, if you want to know how he survived getting shot, being in jail, being in the gang and how he eventually surpassed all these trials and succeeded, then you better get this trivia. Also, recommend this to your friends too who are not only fond of hip-hop music, but also for some real action rappers.<br /><br />

<span><span>Entertaining, colorful, and deceptively full of facts, </span><span style="font-style:italic;">This Phenomenal Life </span><span>tells the story of the wondrous ways that humans are always completely at one with our surrounding world. From the vast galaxies above to the miniature microbes within, humans are organically connected to the complex cycles and mysterious processes of our universe. Every single atom of our body is made of remnants of stars and massive explosions in the galaxies, and we share the same biochemical basis of life with all living beings on earth, from a single-celled amoeba to a giant blue whale. Whimsically hip illustrations elucidate wild science-based facts, from the unexpected intimacy we have with fungi on a daily basis, to the similar ways that humans and birds learn to communicate. Powerful evidence of our interconnection with nature combined with beautiful artwork will inspire the reader to look at the world in a whole new way.</span></span>
