The Pocket Guide to Brilliance Excerpt :

The author of Dad Humor offers an entertaining look at American history’s geniuses, leaders, and dunderheads in a clever quest to define brilliance. With dry humor and a wealth of fascinating trivia, Bart King explores what it means for a person to be brilliant. What he discovers is that brilliant people are those who walk farther, think deeper, and talk louder than the rest of us. They do what it takes to get the job done—and then some. The masters of brilliance profiled here include presidential candidate John Lindsay, who released chickens into his opponent’s crowd to spur on a debate; the first female journalist, Anne Newport Royall, who forced an interview with John Quincy Adams after catching him skinny dipping; and Benjamin Franklin, who of course coined the phrase "A penny saved is a penny earned," but also offered the lesser known "A man who lives on hope, dies farting."

The Brilliance of Black Children in Mathematics Excerpt :

This book is a critically important contribution to the work underway to transform schooling for students who have historically been denied access to a quality education, specifically African American children. The first section of the book provides some historical perspective critical to understanding the current state of education in the U.S., specifically for the education of African American children. The following sections include chapters on policy, learning, ethnomathematics, student identity, and teacher preparation as it relates to the mathematical education of Black children. Through offering “counternarratives” about mathematically successful Black youth, advocating for a curriculum that is grounded in African American culture and ways of thinking, providing shining examples of the brilliance of Blacks students, and promoting high expectations for all rather than situating students as the problem, the authors of this book provide powerful insights related to the teaching and learning of mathematics for African American students. As is made evident in this book, effective teaching involves much more than just engaging students in inquiry-based pedagogy (Kitchen, 2003). The chapters offered in this book demonstrate how mathematics instruction for African American students needs to take into account historical marginalization and present-day policies that do harm to Black students (Kunjufu, 2005). Empowering mathematics instruction for African American students needs to take into consideration and promote students’ cultural, spiritual, and historical identities. Furthermore, mathematics instruction for African American students should create opportunities for students to express themselves and the needs of their communities as a means to promote social justice both within their classrooms and communities.

Natural Brilliance Excerpt :

This book presents an ancient system for understanding human dynamics that can help us navigate our complex, twenty-first-century lives. Traditionally called the five wisdoms, this system describes five forms of intelligence that are inherent in all of us and that we can draw upon at any time. These are: presence, clarity, richness, passion, and action. Author Irini Rockwell explains these fundamental forms of intelligence and how we can put them to use to enhance our relationships, our work, and our creativity. Each of us has a primary form of intelligence, which we must identify and understand, but we can also learn to cultivate the other wisdoms and use them to suit our changing circumstances. Rockwell integrates useful stories and case studies to illustrate how to put the five wisdoms teachings to use in personal and professional life. Building on her first book, The Five Wisdom Energies, Rockwell offers further guidance on using the five wisdoms teachings to gain insight and boost effectiveness, with specific chapters dedicated to those working in the fields of counseling, education, and the arts.

Strategic Brilliance Excerpt :

Was it ‘big thinking’ behind the brilliant minds of Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Mother Teresa that made them achieve remarkable breakthroughs that have changed the world in many ways? Every business education and training programmes encourage us to ‘think big’ and be ‘excellent’. But they do not teach us to be brilliant. While excellence is the quality of being extremely good at something, brilliance is an exceptional level of performance. Strategic Brilliance: From Concept to Reality is a brilliant work of ideas that enlightens readers on the art of ‘brilliance’ and exposes the wildly ambitious and dramatized idea of ‘think big and the rest will follow’ mindset. It outlines a journey from perceiving brilliance to a roadmap for executing it. Guiding the reader through a process of clarifying assumptions, confronting problems and articulating decisions, the book equips business leaders, budding entrepreneurs and strategy enthusiasts to challenge the existing paradigms about success, develop a mindset for brilliance and create a strategic blueprint to achieve it.

The Brilliance of Black Boys Excerpt :

This much-needed book will help schools and, by extension, society to better understand and identify the promise, potential, and possibilities of Black boys. Drawing from their wealth of experience in early childhood education, the authors present an asset- and strengths-based view of educating Black boys. This positive approach enables practitioners and school leaders to recognize, understand, and cultivate the diversity of social skills of Black boys in the early grades (pre-K–3rd grade). Each chapter begins with a vignette to illustrate what is lost when Black boys are prevented from participating freely in boyhood, having to instead attend to adult and peer interactions and attitudes that view them as “bad boys” and “troublemakers.” This accessible book provides teachers with classroom strategies to help young Black boys achieve their highest potential, along with other resources for supporting their social-emotional development, such as a reading list of authentic multicultural children’s books with Black boys as protagonists. “The Brilliance of Black Boys claims new ground to advance knowledge and practice that can change the narrative about Black boys and their early schooling.” —From the Foreword by James Earl Davis, Temple University “Wright’s uncommon insight into the world of Black boys unveils a new narrative and gives educators a formula for turning opportunity into advantage.” —Carol Brunson Day, past president, NAEYC “The Brilliance of Black Boys provides counter-stories, theories, paradigms, and resources to skillfully illustrate the strengths of Black boys. Readers will not be disappointed.” —Donna Y. Ford, Vanderbilt University

Is There Brilliance in Resilience Excerpt :

Is There Brilliance in Resilience? is about that down-to-earth homegirl whose resilience takes you for a walk during a pep talk in a relative way. It gives words to the unexpressed. It is an honest book of poetic stories about family tragedies and life experiences that will rock you, shock you, and get in your face. It will allow you to feel and to share the depression, the extreme grief, and even the relief from the constancy of it. It forces you to look deeper into the lost and the broken to define it and to then empty it out and to refuse it. Yet the survival through it all teaches us to stand up to anything that breaks us down. It is a brushing of ourselves off. It is a taking of our lives back that is so therapeutic and necessary to our well-being.
