About the Book: Rethink or Become Extinct reboots your thinking so you will not only survive, but thrive, in this post-recession economy. Our message is simple: Cultivate your innate ability to be creative and innovative in your job, and you will become indispensable. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at stories from our ten years of escapades, mistakes, flat-out failures, and wild successes. Through our experiences, we figured out how to notice and utilize what other people overlook. You can too. Read Rethink or Become Extinct to learn how.

26-Sep-12 3:29 p.m. GMT
Theme's of the Book:

Rethink or Be/Become Extinct

Seeing what Others do not see (makes you successful)

Finding success by being innovative and looking at things differently.

Qualia

The book is about applying these ideas to the business/corporate environment.
27-Sep-12 2:38 p.m. GMT
Just a note: Another idea might be to play with the Rethink or Be/Become Extinct- perhaps there is an illustration with a dinosaur or a brain/someone thinking.

Feel free to get creative! The important thing is to convey the themes, the styles I listed are not the only ones you can use-they're just preliminary ideas.

Themes: Rethink or Be/Become Extinct
Seeing What others do not leads to Success
2-Oct-12 8:03 p.m. GMT
Thank you for all the submissions! We don't feel like we've found 'the one' yet, so we're extending for another week.

We haven't been liking the 'optical illusions' or 'seeing things others do not see' as much as we thought.

Instead we're focusing on two themes:
Doing Business Backwards
Rethink or Become Extinct

Again the book is a Business Advice book. So the design needs to work in the corporate/entrepreneurial world.

If you have any ideas you haven't submitted, I assure you, we would Love to see them!

Thank you for your creativity and participation!
