My plan is to pretend to be the pregnant man and shoplift about 20 design books from Barnes & Noble by putting them all in my shirt. Conspicuous boldness might do it...

I recommend Alina Wheeler's fine Designing Brand Identity(subtitled "A Complete Guide to Creating, Building, and Maintaining Strong Brands"). It's a very good read.

For those not feeling these harsh economic times, there's always Rodney Smith's The End offered for the special price of $600 (plus $50 shipping) if you order by Dec 15th.
