Call of the Mall Book Description:

The author of the international bestseller Why We Buy—praised by The New York Times as “a book that gives this underrated skill the respect it deserves”—now takes us to the mall, a place every American has experienced and has an opinion about. Paco Underhill, the Margaret Mead of shopping and author of the huge international bestseller Why We Buy, now takes us to the mall, a place every American has experienced and has an opinion about. The result is a bright, ironic, funny, and shrewd portrait of the mall—America’s gift to personal consumption, its most powerful icon of global commercial muscle, the once new and now aging national town square, the place where we convene in our leisure time. It’s about the shopping mall as an exemplar of our commercial and social culture, the place where our young people have their first taste of social freedom and where the rest of us compare notes. Call of the Mall examines how we use the mall, what it means, why it works when it does, and why it sometimes doesn’t.

Call of the Mall Book Description:

Nothing exemplifies shopping more than the mall or shopping centre. It is the US's gift to personal consumption and the crossroad where consumer marketing, media and street culture meet. It is where the developed world (and increasingly everyone else too) goes to acquire, eat and hang out and where many people find their first jobs.

THE MAN IN THE MALL Book Description:

"The Man in the Mall" is a book that is designed to supply solutions to an age-old problem that continues to go unresolved. The problem being that there are a lot of women who complain about the fact their man doesn't like to shop at the mall with them or anyone else for that matter! Most of the women that I spoke to came across as very annoyed and frustrated when it came to getting their man in the mall. This anger was the result of year after year of trying to get him to go shopping with her, resulting in her going to the mall by herself. All that any of these women wanted to do was to share this- outside- the- home activity with the man in their life. What a concept!This book attempts to show the highlights and lowlights of the dilemma that the shopping mall has been over the years. What few highlights that the mall has had on relationships between men and women are far out weighed by the negative ones. The history behind this battle goes back to the 60''s when the mall experience started expanding across the country. There are many things that the malls did which resulted in turning men off from shopping. It's this cause and affect that we will be delving into throughout "The Man in the Mall."There are many parts to this amalgam that we commonly refer to as the shopping mall syndrome and history would indicate that it requires a multitude of solutions to remedy. This book will reveal the solutions to such questions about going to the mall such as: When do we go? Should just the two of us go together? What size mall, and what type of store? How long should I keep him there? How do I plan this trip to the mall? Does it matter if the mall is close or far away? What department should I take him to when we get there? Is it all right to include the mall with something else? What do I do if I need a babysitter? Do I need to leave him alone, or do I stay with him? Who should drive the first time?

The Mall Book Description:

There’s a stalker on the loose at the mall—and there’s no safe place to hide Working at the mall is supposed to be fun. Trish’s job at Muffin-Mania is hardly intellectually challenging and her boss is a piece of work, but it’s worth it to have a job in the same building as her two best friends, the Hanson twins. And the hot guys who hang out there are an added bonus. But something isn’t right about this mall. It’s the oldest mall in the state, remodeled over a dozen times without rhyme or reason, and there are many strange nooks and secret passages behind the bright gleaming storefronts. Someone has been stealing housewares, furniture, and food, and now a mysterious man with ash-gray hair and a whisper-soft voice has started harassing Trish on the phone. He knows her secrets, and he has dark plans for her. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Richie Tankersley Cusick including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

The Mall Book Description:

Dan works at a bookstore in a deadly dull shopping mall where nothing ever happens. He's an angsty emo-kid who sells mid-list books to mid-list people for the minimum wage. He hates his job. Rhoda has dragged her babysitting charge to the mall so she can meet her dealer and score some coke. Now the kid's run off, and she has two hours to find him. She hates her life. Rhoda bullies Dan into helping her search, but as they explore the neon-lit corridors behind the mall, disturbing text messages lure them into the bowels of the building, where old mannequins are stored in grave-like piles and raw sewage drips off the ceiling. The only escape is down, and before long Dan and Rhoda are trapped in a service lift listening to head-splitting musak. Worst of all, the lift's not stopping at the bottom floor. Plummeting into the earth, Dan and Rhoda enter a sinister underworld that mirrors their worst fears. Forced to complete a series of twisted tasks to find their way out, they finally emerge into the brightly lit food court, sick with relief at the banal sight of people shopping and eating. But something feels different. Why are the shoppers all pumped full of silicone? Why are the shop assistants chained to their counters? And why is a cafe called McColon's selling lumps of bleeding meat? Just when they think they've made it back to the mall, they realise their nightmare has only just begun...

Beware the Mall Stalker Book Description:

Shopping malls, or fashion malls, are where most people prefer to do their shopping. Promenades by another name, they offer a one-stop marketplace to satisfy most buyers. A mall also provides shoppers with an indoor covered atmosphere, an air-conditioned shelter and safe haven where one can spend an entire day leisurely browsing from store to store before indulging in one of the many food outlets available. Some malls also offer various attractions and amenities aside from the usual shops. Conversely a mall is also an area where the less desirables may wander about for lack of anywhere else to prowl. They are there not to shop, at least for merchandise per se, but to observe and stare at the attractive faces parading around. Malls are filled with girls and women of all ages, innocently going about their business unaware that perhaps someone is being more than merely gawked at. Perhaps some creep may be lurking, watching and waiting until his chosen one appears. And when she does, that same foreboding, diabolical fiend may choose to follow the alluring prey, one particular shopper who is preparing to exit the mall and return to her vehicle and then, just maybe, her worst nightmare occurs…
