spatial planning, economic and cultural geography, environmental and political sciences, sociology and architecture) as well as cases and examples across different spatial and geographical contexts (e.g.

urban slums in India; flood-prone communities in the UK; coastal Japan).

The cases present and explore challenges and potentials of resilience-thinking for practitioners and academics.

“As technology threatens to displace countless jobs and skills, the ability to communicate is becoming more important than ever.

This book is full of examples to help you get better at transporting your thoughts and emotions into the minds of other people.” —Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg How to master the art of persuasion—from the bestselling author of Talk Like TED.

Ideas don’t sell themselves.

As the forces of globalization, automation, and artificial intelligence combine to disrupt every field, having a good idea isn’t good enough.

Mastering the ancient art of persuasion is the key to standing out, getting ahead, and achieving greatness in the modern world.

Communication is no longer a “soft” skill—it is the human edge that will make you unstoppable, irresistible, and irreplaceable—earning you that perfect rating, that fifth star.

In Five Stars, Carmine Gallo, bestselling author of Talk Like TED, breaks down how to apply Aristotle’s formula of persuasion to inspire contemporary audiences.

As the nature of work changes, and technology carries things across the globe in a moment, communication skills become more valuable—not less.

Gallo interviews neuroscientists, economists, historians, billionaires, and business leaders of companies like Google, Nike, and Airbnb to show first-hand how they use their words to captivate your imagination and ignite your dreams.

In the knowledge age—the information economy—you are only as valuable as your ideas.

Five Stars is a book to help you bridge the gap between mediocrity and exceptionality, and gain your competitive edge in the age of automation.

In Five Stars, you will also learn: -The one skill billionaire Warren Buffett says will raise your value by 50 percent.

-Why your job might fall into a category where 75 percent or more of your income relies on your ability to sell your idea.

-How Airbnb’s founders follow a classic 3-part formula shared by successful Hollywood movies.

-Why you should speak in third-grade language to persuade adult listeners.

-The one brain hack Steve Jobs, Leonardo da Vinci, and Picasso used to unlock their best ideas.
