Countless great products have failed to show up on the market because the "creators," average people with five-second flashes of inspiration, didn't know what to do with their ideas. The 5-Second Inventor gives these people a step-by-step guide through the process that professional developers use to produce and market products, but focuses on self-production. Ken Chuah uses his own experiences to help the beginning "inventpreneur" (an inventor/entrepreneur) with low-budget strategies, a unique screening test to pinpoint the best manufacturers, and an in-depth chapter on understanding Chinese culture for the outsourcing inventpreneur. The 5-Second Inventor streamlines the process of converting ideas into products, emphasizing self-production rather than licensing deals. A reader will learn to identify his or her idea's potential with market research pinpointing the potential product's target audience. For security during this and the development process, The 5-Second Inventor covers different types of patents, non-disclosure agreements, and other ways to protect intellectual property. For the production phase, it outlines strategies for minimizing the initial startup budget. This includes the pros and cons of overseas manufacturing and information for the inventpreneur who chooses an overseas manufacturing partner. Ken gives advice for working with different types of retail buyers, such as big chain stores or online retailers. The 5-Second Inventor gives guides for publicity, marketing, and methods of selling one's innovative product. Written in layman's terms for people new to the invention industry, The 5-Second Inventor is the perfect guide for beginning inventpreneurs.

The Nature of Sympathy explores, at different levels, the social emotions of fellow-feeling, the sense of identity, love and hatred, and traces their relationship to one another and to the values with which they are associated. Scheler criticizes other writers, from Adam Smith to Freud, who have argued that the sympathetic emotions derive from self-interested feelings or instincts. He reviews the evaluations of love and sympathy current in different historical periods and in different social and religious environments, and concludes by outlining a theory of fellow-feeling as the primary source of our knowledge of one another.

A prolific writer and a stimulating thinker, Max Scheler ranks second only to Husserl as a leading member of the German phenomenological school. Scheler's work lies mostly in the fields of ethics, politics, sociology, and religion. He looked to the emotions, believing them capable, in their own quality, of revealing the nature of the objects, and more especially the values, to which they are in principle directed.

"Scheler's book is in many ways important and great. The questions raised and the method followed are important: modern British thought with its crude use and abuse of the "emotive theory" could do well with a systematic study of the emotions which might show them up as complex intentional structures, and which might rely as much on the phenomenological insights of a Scheler, as on the behaviouristic flair of Gilbert Ryle."--J.N. Findlay, Mind
