"There's no ghost writer for this book. It's just me." - Brian May With these words, the author announces the first book ever to be published about the legendary rock band Queen by a member of the band. And certainly the first book of its kind in the world. It's a unique collection of original, highly personal snapshots of Queen in Three Dimensions, from the band's inception in the early '70s right up to the present day, accompanied by the exclusive recollections of founding member and lead guitarist, Brian May. Brian's typically honest account of his experiences within and without the band, including many extreme highs and lows, bravely opens the door to his feelings, beliefs and motivations on this trip though an extraordinary life. This book will entrance millions of Queen fans; but it will also inspire anyone who wonders what they might learn from a man who used his intellect, musical talent, and ability to make the transition from college boy to rock star in just a few years, and then go on building creatively for the next forty! The book is illustrated with over 300 photographs, the majority actually taken by Brian, and mostly in 3-D. These shots of Freddie Mercury, John Deacon, Roger Taylor, and Brian himself, on and off stage all round the world, spring into life when viewed with Brian's patent OWL viewer (supplied free with the book). Through the eyes of Brian's camera you are transported back in time to experience Queen's miraculous 46-year journey as if you were actually there ]] whether in a dressing room, in a car, on a plane, or on stage at Madison Square Garden. The three dimensional stereoscopic images (the precursor of Virtual Reality) immerse and engage you in the atmosphere of the moment as no flat 2-D picture ever could.

Relax and flip through this book for a real in-depth jaunt through time and place! From the late 1800s until the advent of radio and television, stereoscope viewers were one of the most popular forms of home entertainment. Special cameras make stereoscopic cards, which feature two images set side-by-side. Seen through the viewer, the two photos merge to create a strikingly lifelike 3-D image. You can still experience the thrill of seeing world landmarks up close and personal, with an added dimension. Combine time travel with a trip to London, all from the comfort of your own home. Here is London in the great era of Queen Victoria and King Edward VII, brought to life in rare, original, three-dimensional photographs. Included are views of such iconic London sights as Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and the famous Beefeaters, nighttime on the Thames, Petticoat Lane, the Tower Bridge, and London Bridgeâ??when it was still in London. The book's built-in stereoscopic lenses make viewing the photographs a snap. Extensive captions describe the history of each of the landmarks portrayed in the book. Experience the depth and realism no ordinary photograph or movie can offer, all in a tidy, bound book, so you can't lose your stereoscope viewer!

Romancing the Market is a radical rethinking of marketing understanding. Marketing and consumer research are dominated by the neo-classical ideals of the Enlightenment such as rigour, dispassion and the search for scientific 'truth'. In a series of provocative essays, the contributors challenge these assumptions with reference to the individuality, innovation and imagination of the Romantic movement. The book contains essays by an international selection of the most creative contemporary marketing scholars, including Elizabeth Hirschman, Russell Belk, Craig Thompson and Robin Wensley. Illuminating, controversial and cutting edge, this is an essential work for all those interested in new directions in marketing and consumer research.

In Brian May's Red Special Guitar you will discover everything you ever wished to know about Brian May's unique guitar. Brian talks about every aspect of the Red Special, from its birth to playing on the roof of Buckingham Palace, from Live Aid to the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and beyond. All of this is accompanied by original diagrams, sketches and notes dating from the building of the guitar, as well as a great selection of photographs including Brian on stage with his guitar, close-ups and x-rays. Rare and previously unseen images are included throughout, as well as a full exploration of every aspect of the guitar that has been fully dismantled and photographed. Brian May and his father, Harold, started to hand-build an electric guitar in 1963. Brian dreamed of a guitar that would outperform any of the existing commercially made electric guitars; his father had the technical knowledge and skills to help make the dream come true. Brian played his guitar on every Queen album and in all of Queen's live shows around the world. "My dad and I decided to make an electric guitar. I designed an instrument from scratch, with the intention that it would have a capability beyond anything that was out there, more tunable, with a greater range of pitches and sounds, with a better tremolo, and with a capability of feeding back through the air in a 'good' way" - Brian May
