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."

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.

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.

Sharma Krauskopf began her career after graduation from Purdue University working with disadvantaged populations. She worked her way from direct services to administration of multi-million dollar nonprofit organizations serving people with special needs. She began sharing those experiences through her own company, Innovative Consulting Services (ICS, Inc.) all over the world. The consulting meant endless travel so she gave it up so she could be home closer to her family and began her writing career. One of the advantages of the consulting was it resulted in her falling in love with Scotland where her ancestors were members of the Clan Morrison. She began an e-zine called Scottish Radiance to share Scotland with the world. That e-zine was the number one e-zine for many years in the early days of the Internet and stories from it are still available on the internet. Writing and editing Scottish Radiance brought a publisher to her in 1999 wanting her to write a book entitled Scotland: Complete Guide and Road Atlas. Since that book she has had 28 book printed by publishers in the UK, Ireland and USA. The books include non-fiction, fiction and books for children. Her love for Scotland grew to the point that she and her husband decided to buy a vacation home in Scotland. The first piece of property they looked at was Neist Pointe lighthouse on the Isle of Skye. Even though they were outbid on that property it convinced them lighthouse living was for them. They spent the next nine years looking for a Scottish lighthouse home. They finally bought Eshaness Lighthouse on Scotland's Shetland Island archipelago in the North Sea across from Norway. David A Stevenson a member of the family of the world's best lighthouse builders designed and built it. The search for and living at Eshaness are responsible for her very popular books about lighthouses and her experiences at Eshaness. In 2014 she wrote a screenplay and produces a feature length motion picture with the goal to honor lighthouse keepers entitled Lighthouse Unmanned. That motion picture was filmed in 2015 and will be released in 2016. She began in 2016 she writing screenplays and producing animated motion pictures for children based on her popular children books.
