About the Book:
Revolutionary new technologies developed over the past decade have completely changed the way humans communicate and transact business. Not exactly late-breaking news for most people of the world . . . except for those who are supposed to be marketing to them. While consumers, customers, and marketplaces have adapted to these new realities, most marketers have not.
Renowned marketing expert Tim Pearson explains why you need to sever your ties to the comfortable old ways of marketing--and bring your company's marketing into the twenty-first century.
Too many marketers still operate as if strategy necessarily depends upon predetermined budgets; advertising is the catch-all to every problem; and marketing results can't be measured. It all adds up to the age-old belief that marketing is an art, not a science--which couldn't be further from the truth.
"The Old Rules of Marketing Are Dead" is a road map for breaking out of old, established--and increasingly ineffective--routines and reinventing your organization's marketing by: Positioning marketing as a business partner--not as a tool for meeting a strategic objective Holding marketing accountable for results with the application of hard data-- not vague qualitative measurements Providing leadership within your organization--not following the direction of everyone else
From research frameworks and concept development to planning, budgeting, media placement, and program implementation, marketers have not kept up--to the detriment of themselves and their companies. Completely revamping old-school marketing is the only way to drive profitable sales, create growing brands, and increase market share in today's post-Great Recession business landscape.
Pearson calls for nothing short of a marketing revolution. You must throw out almost everything you hold dear and embrace technology, a new role in business, and real accountability. "The Old Rules of Marketing Are Dead" has what you need to reinvent your products, your services--and your future.

A moving memoir, Dreaming of Columbus illuminates place as a force that shapes lives. Through recollection and reportage, Michael Pearson recreates the Bronx of the 1950s and 60s, the place of his youth, that "precisely known world, safe and claustrophobic, " an Irish Catholic culture filled with light and shadows.
Pearson renders time and place vividly through his lyrical narrative voice and generous spirit toward his characters. In a work that is both comic and sad, he juxtaposes descriptions of adolescent escapades with the grim discipline of parochial schools. It is in this Bronx that dreams of escape fuse with bittersweet memories.
The driving force behind Pearson's story is its people -- an enigmatic father, a steadfast mother, an eccentric and influential writing teacher, the boys and girls who shared his neighborhood, the high school girl who shared his vision and his life -- and the books that made escape and return seem possible.
Few writers go home again as successfully as Michael Pearson. When he literally and imaginatively revisits the all-but-unrecognizable Bronx of his youth, longing for its intense life, he concedes it was "close to paradise." We understand perfectly.

History has largely forgotten the writings, both public and private, of early nineteenth-century America's legal scholars. However, Ellen Holmes Pearson argues that the observers from this era had a unique perspective on the young nation and the directions in which its legal culture might go.
"Remaking Custom" draws on the law lectures, treatises, speeches, and papers of the early republic's legal scholars to examine the critical role that they played in the formation of American identities. As intermediaries between the founders of America's newly independent polities and the next generation of legal practitioners and political leaders, the nation's law educators expressed pride in the retention of the "republican parts" of England's common law while at the same time identifying some of the central features that distinguished American law from that of Britain. From their perspective, the new nation's blending of tradition and innovation produced a superior national character.
Because American law educators interpreted both local and national legal trends, "Remaking Custom" reveals how national identities developed through Americans' articulation of their local customs and identities. Pearson examines the innovations that legists could celebrate, such as constitutional changes that placed the people at the center of their governments and more egalitarian property laws that accompanied America's abundant supply of land. The book also deals with innovations that presented uncomfortable challenges to law educators as they sought creative ways to justify the legal cultures that grew up around slavery and Anglo-Americans' hunger for land occupied by Native Americans.
