The Art of Building a Brand
Writer & Book Producer
Duluth Trading Company has grown from a one-product startup in 1989, through a company known for its humorous catalogs, to what it is today: a much-admired brand with a flair for creating apparel that solves problems for its customers. People who take a self-reliant approach to life appreciate the Long-Tail T-shirt to remedy plumber’s butt, or the Armachillo range with its cooling, jade-infused fabric. The Art of Building a Brand shows how the company’s evolution took place, the elements that contributed, and the obstacles overcome.
This is a book about “brand” in the larger sense: not just how the company appears to the outside world, but the work behind the scenes that makes it unique. Storytelling, innovation, risk taking, respect, and striving for growth are just some of the shared values that make the whole of the Duluth Trading Company more than the sum of its parts.
“I can’t find enough good things to say about Family Spirit…. It is destined to become a classic in business classes worldwide.”

From the pediatrician who became an Internet sensation with the “Hamilton Hold” in a YouTube video about how to calm a crying baby, comes a one-of-a-kind resource to guide you through the earliest moments of your child’s life—and help you to parent with common sense and confidence.
Robert C. Hamilton, M.D., has spent more than three decades caring for newborns. In his practice, Dr. Bob has seen it all—what works, what doesn’t. How can you get your baby to nurse, sleep, and maybe even cease
crying? What strategies can help you connect and communicate with your infant? What important decisions will you make during the first year for your child, yourself, and your partner?
Here, Dr. Bob shares his clear, sensible, warm advice—as well as all the latest scientific data and research—on how to:
• Offer comfort to a crying newborn using the “Hold”
• Gently teach your baby how to sleep (and get some sleep yourself)
• Manage screen time in your home
• And more to help you navigate the unforgettable first year of your child’s life.
“Hamilton offers a cheery, exuberant text intended to celebrate babies, convince readers to have babies, and educate parents about how to best negotiate and enjoy the first 12 months of a child’s life.”

These small behaviors added up, and before he turned thirty, Shay weighed nearly 300 pounds. Motivated by the fear that he could have a heart attack before thirty-five, Shay decided to make incremental changes to his eating habits and exercise regimen. Shay lost more than 100 pounds and ran four marathons, becoming a source of inspiration for everyone who followed his journey on his ShayLoss channel.
Now, at the age of thirty-five, Shay has discovered that “maintaining” is the hard part. He has also seen how some of his hard-to-break habits are affecting his children, particularly his eldest son, Gavin, who grew up during the years when his dad had “a little extra Shay on him.” Determined to get back into shape and inspire his son along the way, Shay asked Gavin to embark on a thirty-day challenge with him to eat clean and do thirty minutes of exercise a day. Full of Shay’s signature blend of humor, honesty, and unbridled enthusiasm, Fat Dad, Fat Kid chronicles the ups and downs of Shay and Gavin’s thirty days together, reflects on Shay’s lifelong struggle with health and fitness, and proves that it’s never too late for parents or children to embrace a healthier lifestyle—even when it doesn’t come easy.

Here, in his bestselling memoir, Chris O’Brien looked back over his life and the forces that shaped him: from his modest beginnings and early years as a doctor to becoming the face of the television show RPA, and from his crusade for the establishment of integrated cancer centers to the shocking news that changed his life.
In June 2009, after living with cancer for two and a half years, Chris O’Brien passed away. To the end he was optimistic and generous, relaying his energies into fundraising for an integrated cancer center, the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse at Royal Prince Alfred hospital.

Positive brings together a collection of voices: cancer survivors, caretakers, partners, parents, siblings. Together, their stories map out the terrain of the upside of cancer: the opportunity to draw together (as friends, as a couple, as a family); the torrent of support, love and prayers that are unleashed; the impetus to go deeper and embrace the strength, fears, and purpose that lie within each of us.
“Sally Collings has crafted a varied collection of interviews with people who have had cancer themselves or had a loved one diagnosed with it… a well-balanced, interesting, moving, helpful compendium.”
When Kristian wanted to show his wife, Rachel, how much he loved her after learning he was terminally ill, he ended up winning a million hearts around the world, thanks to the now famous YouTube video he made for her 35th birthday. This heartfelt and moving tribute by a young father of two and his battle with cancer drew attention to a much larger story: an ordeal so many families face alone.
Like Oprah (who invited Kristian and Rachel on her show) and Hugh Jackman (who helped make one of Kristian’s dreams come true by appearing on the tribute video), the wider world didn’t know Kristian, but we were so inspired by him we felt as though we did. He touched lives, gave hope, and left behind a precious legacy that will mean a longer and better quality of life for thousands of cancer sufferers.
Kristian’s story, told in his own words from his blog entries, with additions from his beloved wife Rachel, will inspire you to know that even in your darkest moments, the light can shine through.
“Kristian was an inspiration to us all, the way he handled cancer with fierce grace. I was so moved after meeting him and seeing how much he appreciated his family, and every precious moment. He taught us how to LIVE with cancer. The light he left on earth will not be dimmed by his passing.”
