This accessible handbook from design guru Rob Forbes uncovers the beauty in the commonplace and reveals how visual thinking can enrich our lives. In friendly text complemented by photographs taken on his travels around the world, Forbes explains how to appreciate the design elements that surround us in the built environment. Linking broad concepts such as composition and materiality to quotidian details such as the play of color in hanging laundry or the repeated forms in a row of ice cream scoops, Forbes reveals how an appreciation of the hues, patterns, and textures that surround us can enhance a life well lived. See for Yourself is essential reading to see more clearly, think more visually, and enjoy the world more deeply.

In order to understand and improve cities today, personal observation remains as important as ever. While big data, digital mapping, and simulated cityscapes are valuable tools for understanding urban space, using them without on-the-ground, human impressions risks creating places that do not reflect authentic local context. Seeing the Better City brings our attention back to the real world right in front of us, focusing it once more on the sights, sounds, and experiences of place in order to craft policies, plans, and regulations to shape better urban environments. Through clear prose and vibrant photographs, Charles Wolfe shows those who experience cities how they might catalog the influences of urban form, neighborhood dynamics, public transportation, and myriad other basic city elements that impact their daily lives. He then shares insights into how they can use those observations to contribute to better planning and design decisions. Wolfe calls this the “urban diary” approach, and highlights how the perspective of the observer is key to understanding the dynamics of urban space. He concludes by offering contemporary examples and guidance on how to use carefully recorded and organized observations as a tool to create change in urban planning conversations and practice. From city-dwellers to elected officials involved in local planning and design issues, this book is an invaluable tool for constructive, creative discourse about improving urban space.

The Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading is an in-depth, easy-to-use guide to trading the financial markets with the Elliott Wave Principle. In many ways this book picks up where Frost & Prechter's classic Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior left off, which makes it "required reading" if you want to build a solid foundation in Elliott wave analysis. Co-authored by two of Elliott Wave International's most trusted analysts -- Wayne Gorman and Jeffrey Kennedy -- their trading insights offer a perfect blend of traditional textbook and real-world application. Join Kennedy and Gorman as they provide step-by-step instruction in how to trade with Elliott. They include scores of real market charts that depict the Elliott wave patterns, which will help you measure the strength of trends, forecast market turning points, plus identify trading opportunities. What's more, this illustrated guide also explains how to use supporting technical indicators that can build confidence in your Elliott wave analysis. Gorman and Kennedy know that "simple" does not mean "easy." Their combined expertise will help you build confidence in your analysis, create an effective trading plan, and better manage your trades. Whether your trading style is conservative or aggressive, their charts and techniques can help identify high-confidence opportunities. Each chapter includes key points & smart investor tips, such as how to "Prepare yourself to take advantage of opportunities even when your preferred count does not materialize," and "Let the market commit to you before you commit to the market." Elliott wave analysis recognizes that in financial markets, mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence. Use this book to recognize those wave patterns, and anticipate market moves that most traders never see coming. The Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading is the new criterion for any serious technical trader.
