What is a toddler trying to say by touching his ears or tilting his head? Dr David Lewis pioneered the study of how young children communicate with each other using gestures and facial expressions and his detailed research explains how toddlers can already communicate before they learn to speak. The Secret Language of Your Child explains the facial and body expressions of the under-fives, helping parents to understand what their child is trying to communicate and to recognise when a child is feeling anxious, aggressive or distressed. Using a wealth of illustrations that interpret the secret language of your child, David Lewis reveals how to communicate with a child during its formative years. Learn how to understand your child and how to reply in the same language. The Secret Language of Your Child is an essential handbook for all new parents, carers and nursery staff in its revelations of the body language and the behaviour of the under-fives. It will make every reader look at under-fives in an entirely different way.

David Lewis
Jonathan David Lewis
Today’s business leaders operate in an increasingly harsh environment. Uncertainty in the economy causes paralysis. Quarterly goals drive short-term and shortsighted decisions. Workforce mobility kills loyalty. Iconic products decline as fast as start-ups create new categories. And the pressure to do more with less, combined with the multiplicity of available marketing tools and technology, can be overwhelming.

Now more than ever, brands and the people who lead them need clarity and guidance. The good news is that people have found ways to thrive in harsh environments for millennia. Author Jonathan David Lewis, combining the lessons of group survival dynamics with more than a decade of proprietary research into the factors that cause companies to lose their way, shows leaders how to thrive in unforgiving business environments by learning to:

Focus on navigating risk instead of trying to measure or reduce it.

Cultivate your brand’s will to live by staying positive and asking the most important question: Are you worth it?

Read the brand signs by observing the market, keeping an eye on performance measures, engaging your team, and listening to your gut.

Develop a concept of "mission" to ensure internal alignment and reduce friction.

Act with urgency rather than waiting for the right circumstance.

Brand vs. Wild helps readers understand the wilderness in which they find their companies and identify the specific steps they must take to thrive in the Brand Wilderness. There is hope in a harsh business world. And Brand vs. Wild is it.
