In his latest book, writer, photographer, musician, and former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has created an extraordinary document and critique of the times we live in. Your Action World parodies the "inspirational" promotional materialsincluding books, tapes, and corporate advertising - with which we are inundated daily. Byrne's impulse is to fight back, "to stem the tide of images and bullying texts that assault all of us, by building dikes and dams of my own images and texts. To understand the enemy I must become one with the enemy, I must be of one mind with the enemy. I must infect myself in order to be immunized." An intelligent, quirky document from one of our most innovative artistswith a cool debossed PVC cover and 4-color stickerYour Action World will be the cult hit of the season.

David Byrne began his artistic life as a photographer, experimenting in this field while scoring major successes in music and cinema. He was the leader of the Talking Heads from 1976 until 1988 and continues to create compelling popular music as a solo artist, among other artistic ventures.Review:
< What is the doll smiling about anyway? Cool, suggestive, strange, Your Action World: Winners are Losers with a New Attitude satirizes those odious "personal power" manuals and every other variety of get-ahead, improve-yourself tract with deadpan accuracy. As was often the case with his lyrics for the Talking Heads, David Byrne's images are ironic on the surface, disconcerting in their lurking emotional undertones.
