Winner of the 2016 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work for Youth/Teens; A 2016 Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book. Cowritten by Malcolm X’s daughter, this riveting and revealing novel follows the formative years of the man whose words and actions shook the world. Malcolm Little’s parents have always told him that he can achieve anything, but from what he can tell, that’s a pack of lies—after all, his father’s been murdered, his mother’s been taken away, and his dreams of becoming a lawyer have gotten him laughed out of school. There’s no point in trying, he figures, and lured by the nightlife of Boston and New York, he escapes into a world of fancy suits, jazz, girls, and reefer. But Malcolm’s efforts to leave the past behind lead him into increasingly dangerous territory. Deep down, he knows that the freedom he’s found is only an illusion—and that he can’t run forever. X follows Malcolm from his childhood to his imprisonment for theft at age twenty, when he found the faith that would lead him to forge a new path and command a voice that still resonates today.

Welcome to a new era of business in which your brand is defined by those who experience it. Customer experience is the new marketing and it's also one of the hottest trends in business right now. Also known as CX, executives, strategists, and agencies alike are learning that the digital customer is notably different than the traditional customers before them. Expectations, the technology they use, how and where they make decisions and what it is they value is forcing strategists to rethink and redesign the customer journey for a multiscreen world. While rife with challenges, CX represents a life-saving opportunity for businesses to earn relevance among a new generation of connected customers. But…what is an experience? Believe it or not, it's more than creative marketing or exceptional customer support. An experience is a physical and emotional connection between brand and customer throughout the relationship lifecycle. An experience is the brand and it is aspirational. An experience is a great product, its packaging and its performance over time. An experience is delightful sales and service. An experience is everything and an experience is intentional by design The reality is that people are going to have an experience. The question is have we actually defined what it is and what it should look like, feel like, and how it enchants our senses and sensibilities? Or do you just leave it to chance? The problem is that experiences today are disjointed simply because everyone has a different answer to what an experience is or should be. And worse, people who lead customer engagement across different touchpoints don't collaborate or communicate today. Without design, experiences are indeed left to coincidence and there's no need, benefit or glory in happenstance. To compete for the future, to earn a competitive advantage and to build relevance into more meaningful and fruitful relationships, takes experience architecture. In his new book X, Brian Solis shares more than the importance of experience; he teaches readers how to design a desired, meaningful and uniform customer experience in every moment of truth. Solis introduces the rise of experience architecture and helps readers shift from a reactive to proactive approach to CX that borrows in a fun and informative way from the art and science of: User Experience (UX) Human-Centered Design Hollywood Storytelling Game Theory Transportation Engineering Storyboarding Apple's approach to experience architecture… In X, Solis introduces a framework that will help anyone answer the question "What is an experience?" Business, meet design.

Now available as an eBook for the very first time! • ONE OF TIME’S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America. Praise for The Autobiography of Malcolm X “Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.”—Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father “Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book.”—The New York Times “A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.”—The Nation “The most important book I’ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn’t know I had inside me. I’m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better.”—Spike Lee “This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.”—I. F. Stone

Of #1 New York Times–bestselling author Sue Grafton, NPR’s Maureen Corrigan said, “Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters.” With only two letters left, Grafton’s many devoted readers will share that sentiment. X: The number ten. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. A kiss. X: The shortest entry in Webster’s Unabridged. Derived from Greek and Latin and commonly found in science, medicine, and religion. The most graphically dramatic letter. Notoriously tricky to pronounce: think xylophone. X: The twenty-fourth letter in the English alphabet. Sue Grafton’s X: Perhaps her darkest and most chilling novel, it features a remorseless serial killer who leaves no trace of his crimes. Once again breaking the rules and establishing new paths, Grafton wastes little time identifying this sociopath. The test is whether Kinsey can prove her case against him before she becomes his next victim. From the Hardcover edition.
