5. About the Book

The power of body language is greater than words!
Win hearts in 3 seconds!

The popularity of the communications books attests to our desire to improve our public speaking skills. But can a book or two turn someone into a well-spoken communicator? Developing your own style and contents takes more than craming. Naturally flowing eloquence requires practice over time. More importantly, talent comes into play.
But that doesn’t mean you should despair. There are other techniques that can greatly improve you communication, namely body language.
Professor Heo Haengyang introduces various body language techniques, such as facial expressions, responsiveness, mirroring, gaze, voice, touch, posture, and gesture. He details scientifically proven effects and real life applications. There is no need to despair over being a poor public speaker. Invest three seconds in your body language to communicates eaiser and faster than words. Be remembered as an attractive person.

 

Communication begins before you speak.
Is it possible to start communicating before uttering a word? Surprisingly, communication takes more than just words. Communication takes three things: a physical appearance, monetary possessions, and verbal words. Communication via body and money is particularly important when meeting someone for the first time. The first few seconds of wordless communication determine first impressions, and you have a higher chance of making a good first impression if you are groomed and well dressed. In fact, if you fail to communicate on the physical and monetary level, you may not even get the opportunity to exchange words. No matter how good the person may be at heart, you may not want to learn more about the person without a good first impression. This book focuses on the body language that other communications books fail to address and guides readers to win hearts.

5. About the Book

A Guide for Communicating with Photos
We are beyond the era of 24-cut and 36-cut film cameras or the digital camera. It is now the era of smart phone. The role of photos changed from commemorating special days to recording ordinary moments in our daily lives. Photographs have become a form of language and an ordinary mode of communication to depict stories. However, as photographs become part of our daily lives, the standard of “good photographs” has become more ambiguous.Photograph Reading is not a book that simply shares photos, but a guidebook that explains why photos are important and how to read the stories captured in each one.
This book was inspired by the photograph of a migrant mother and her children at the US-Mexican border. The author shares his unique hands-on experience with photographs from the past and the present. The author’s reporting on the Pregant Comfort Woman is paired with the author’s experience of reporting on Chinese comfort women and poignantly caputures the controversal history. Robert Capa’s major works come to life with testimonials of the author and his American colleague’s experience. The author shares unknown stories about famous photographs and tells mesmerizing stories of unknown photos in a single volume. Borrowing from the intriguing and heart rending stories behind photographs, the author offers a different approach towards photographs - a record of history and media - as well as a framework to view our society.

Media Review and Advertisement | An interesting story by the owner of a local secondhand bookstore who read Ivan Illich’s books and applied the insights from the books to his life and business of running a bookstore.

 

4. About the Author

The author had dreamt since childhood of becoming the owner of a secondhand bookstore, but he majored in computer science at university and was employed for a long time at an IT company. Around thirty, he quit his job and worked for a publisher and at a secondhand bookstore until 2007, when he opened his own secondhand bookstore, “Secondhand Bookstore in Wonderland.” He has been running it ever since. He likes the ideas of Ivan Illich and tries to apply them to his life and to running his business. He has published A Secondhand Bookstore in Wonderland, Late-Night Bookstore, An Old Book Talked to Me, and My Way of Reading, among others.

 

5. About the Book

This book tells an interesting story about the owner of a neighborhood secondhand bookstore who read Ivan Illich’s books and applied this philosopher’s insights to his life and the business of running the bookstore. He relates some interesting anecdotes from what he experienced in his 11 years of running the bookstore as well as some interesting interviews that he conducted with Japanese experts in the secondhand bookstore business.
The author was employed at an IT company before opening the bookstore, and had to work day and night with little time for himself. The lack of a work-life balance led to extreme weight increase and debilitating stress, eventually leaving him bed-ridden. After a nervous breakdown, he happened to encounter Ivan Illich’s books and realized the importance of “everyday life.” Without leaving the country and by taking on the management of a secondhand bookstore, the author strives to make a rhythm of his own everyday life, mulling over how to avoid being dominated by the capitalist system.
In a time when running an ordinary bookstore is already hard enough, concerned people ask the author about how he keeps a secondhand bookstore going and how he manages to survive. He also often hears that he is very courageous in quitting his good job. Some advise him to register the bookstore as a “social enterprise” to receive a government subsidy, some offer unsolicited lectures on what he should do with his time, and some, for example, insist on receiving a higher purchase price for their popular poetry book, considering it a rare, precious tome, and so on. From these anecdotes, readers can imagine the difficulties of running a secondhand bookstore, which from the outside might seem peaceful and relaxed.
The author, however, enjoys doing what he does. Although buying used books is not easy, he feels pleased and satisfied when he finds a rare valuable book. He muses over how to live independently through running a bookstore and does not hesitate to share joy with people. He even keeps his shop open late and invites insomniacs to come by. This book contains interesting and amusing anecdotes accumulated during the 11 years of running the bookstore. In reading them, readers will feel empathy for the author’s memories of joy and sorrow.
