As the composer of some of Ireland’s best-loved songs, not to mention a host of global hits, Phil Coulter has been a mainstay of Irish cultural life for decades. But this is a position that has been hard won, often in the face of extraordinary personal and political upheaval, most of which has, to date, been kept hidden from public view. Heartfelt and wry, meditative and entertaining, Bruised, Never Broken is the story of the author’s remarkable rise from modest beginnings on the streets of post-war Derry to the summit of the global charts, as a composer and confidante to a host of the era’s biggest stars, such as Van Morrison, Luke Kelly, Cliff Richard and Sandie Shaw. Poignantly, it is also a hymn to the place that made him, a city as complex and troubled throughout Ireland’s middle decades as any on Earth, yet a source of constant inspiration and consolation.

Winner of the 2019 O.W.L. Outstanding Works of Literature Award Why do we immediately recognize art by Van Gogh and Warhol? What does Beethoven share with Rage Against the Machine and Madonna? What makes us remember the words of Churchill and King (and Domino's Pizza, for that matter)? With the rise of digital media and advertising, a constant barrage of information makes it nearly impossible to be seen and heard. In The Iconist, branding and design strategist Jamie Mustard shows you how individuals, organizations, and brands can break through the noise. The secret to standing out lies in creating content that the desired audience will "lock" onto and remember with little effort—simple, bold ideas that can be immediately understood. The Iconist reveals a set of primal laws in human society that explain why some things stand out and endure in the mind, while others are rejected. Blending relevant examples from history and pop culture with cutting-edge psychology, Mustard explores why certain things stick and others fade from memory—and gives you an owner's manual to make any idea, product, or service stand out and be remembered. Forget relying on luck or trial-and-error: Mastering this process will enable you, no matter your field or endeavor, to confidently craft messages that resonate with your target audience through simple, fool-proof methods. For businesses, marketers, teachers, advertisers, artists—from thought leaders to anyone trying to write a resume—The Iconist shows how to grab and hold attention. Fair warning, though: This book will change the way you view your audience . . . and the entire world around you.

In partnership with lyricist Bill Martin, Phil Coulter has composed a number of global hits, including Puppet on a String (for Sandie Shaw), Congratulations (Cliff Richard), Shang-A-Lang (Bay City Rollers), and My Boy (Elvis Presley) earning innumerable accolades. In Ireland he is much loved for songs like 'The Town I Loved So Well' with its stirring, emotional lyrics inspired by growing up in the troubled city of Derry, Northern Ireland. In Bruised, Never Broken Coulter tracks right back to the beginning and his emergence from this war torn place which seemed to offer little opportunity for a young Catholic boy in pursuit of artistic excellence, recalling how, in the face of extraordinary personal and political upheaval, he went on to become one of the greatest musicians of his generation.
