Pop music surrounds us - in our cars, over supermarket speakers, even when we are laid out at the dentist - but how often do we really hear what's playing? Switched on Pop is the book based on the eponymous podcast that has been hailed by NPR, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, and Entertainment Weekly for its witty and accessible analysis of Top 40 hits. Through close studies of sixteen modern classics, musicologist Nate Sloan and songwriter Charlie Harding shift pop from the background to the foreground, illuminating the essential musical concepts behind two decades of chart-topping songs. In 1939, Aaron Copland published What to Listen for in Music, the bestseller that made classical music approachable for generations of listeners. Eighty years later, Nate and Charlie update Copland's idea for a new audience and repertoire: 21st century pop, from Britney to Beyoncé, Outkast to Kendrick Lamar. Despite the importance of pop music in contemporary culture, most discourse only revolves around lyrics and celebrity. Switched on Pop gives readers the tools they need to interpret our modern soundtrack. Each chapter investigates a different song and artist, revealing musical insights such as how a single melodic motif follows Taylor Swift through every genre that she samples, André 3000 uses metric manipulation to get listeners to "shake it like a Polaroid picture," or Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee create harmonic ambiguity in "Despacito" that mirrors the patterns of global migration. Replete with engaging discussions and eye-catching illustrations, Switched on Pop brings to life the musical qualities that catapult songs into the pop pantheon. Readers will find themselves listening to familiar tracks in new waysand not just those from the Top 40. The timeless concepts that Nate and Charlie define can be applied to any musical style. From fanatics to skeptics, teenagers to octogenarians, non-musicians to professional composers, every music lover will discover something ear-openin

Imagine hearing the words of a song but not feeling the passion that lies within. Imagine living for years with someone in need and not being able to sense their sadness. Imagine your world turned upside down… Like so many others, John Elder Robison was born with Asperger’s. Over the years, he misread others’ emotions or missed them altogether. Yet he’d also married, raised a son and become a successful businessman, designing sound systems for rock bands, creating robot games for Milton Bradley and building a car business. Then, at the age of fifty, he became a participant in a major study that would use an experimental brain therapy in an effort to understand and address the issues at the heart of autism. Initially, the results are startling. John’s world is shaken by a previously unknown level of emotional awareness. But over the weeks that follow he struggles with the very real possibility that choosing to diminish his ‘disability’ might also mean sacrificing his unique gifts and maybe even some of his closest relationships.

These Deep States are able to stage-manage nearly every war on the planet Earth in a way that ensures business as usual for their vast military industrial complexes. Together, these Deep States are all set to create war fronts at several locations on the planet, never mind if the common people of these warring countries do not want war. The author makes a valiant attempt to awaken the conscience and common sense of the human beings so that we can ‘dismantle’ these Deep States of the World and reach a new stage in our lives where we can look back on war as an incomprehensible aberration of our past”

Switched On by John Elder Robison | Summary & Analysis Preview: Switched On: A Memoir of Brain Change and Emotional Awakening by John Elder Robison, a man with Asperger’s syndrome, describes the emotional awakening John underwent after his experience with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a highly experimental procedure that zaps the brain with electricity. Much of his story focuses on a life-changing study he joined in 2008. John details the neuroscience he learned and provides a thorough analysis of the positive and negative effects that TMS has had on his life and, to a lesser degree, the lives of his fellow participants, all of whom had autism. Having written several other memoirs about his family life, John acknowledges that he had a difficult childhood without delving into great detail. He always understood that he was different, but his official diagnosis did not come until he was the age of 40. Switched On, in part, revisits his childhood and young adulthood from the vantage of a middle-aged man… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

“A very compelling and personal glimpse into the mind and spirit of our nation’s unseen guardians.” Rear Admiral Francis McDonald, President, Mass. Maritime Academy As a twin in a large Massachusetts family with a heart of gold, Eric wanted to emulate his hero when he grew up—his Police Officer father, Sgt. Edmond Caron, a former Marine. Eric’s dad taught him valuable life lessons that formed his foundation and defined his path, and experience taught him the rest. With his family’s courage, love and guidance inspiring his journey, the author became renowned as an expert in the field of terrorism, money laundering and transnational crime. His investigations ranged from U.S. defense contractors and CIA going rogue, to WMD programs of Iran, China and Russia, to fi re and intrigue in Dubai and Afghanistan. His most challenging case would be a mere mile from his family home, and grip the nation. Throughout his twenty-five-year decorated career as a Special Agent and Diplomat for the U.S. Government, Caron discovered the powerful, life-saving effects of listening to one’s heart, mind and God-given instincts. The author came to think of this principle as being Switched On.

It's been around nine long months since the United States spiraled into chaos due to a cascading systems failure. The die-off everyone predicted has begun and after a hard winter nearly every other house sits empty with the owners dead or unaccounted for. Lately the power has flickered on and off a few times, raising hopes that power restoration is coming soon. But how do you put the genie back in the bottle? Violence is everywhere. Disease is rampant. Hundreds of thousands are dead. Insurance can never pay for the damage and loss that has occurred. The economy will take years to restore, if it can be restored at all. From the recesses of a fractured government comes a plan to restore order and rescue what remains of the population. The first step comes with restoring power. But what if having access to electricity came at such a price that many -- like Jim Powell, his friends, and his neighbors -- would rather face a future in the dark.
