The theme of deeply noticing the world of teaching and learning around us unifies the collected commentaries celebrated in this book. The contributing storytellers, teachers, researchers, poets, photographers, writers, mentors, and guides are integral to sustaining ‘the art of noticing deeply’ to foster wide-awakeness (as Maxine Greene termed it years ago), and engagement in teaching and learning settings and beyond. Such settings might be a forest, a global village, a virtual place, or a classroom. They may be places where skills of collaboration, social justice, problem-solving, critical thinking, ethical practice and lifelong learning are highlighted and celebrated. Together, the authors here explore the spaces where we teach and learn, spaces where we explore and interact, and the spaces where we pause and wonder. This book offers insight into ways in which the arts intersect teachers’ creative beings, and nudges the reader to think about refreshing and renewing what they ‘thought they knew’ about teaching and learning.

As the title suggests, Project Resilience is about making projects and project managers more resilient. It offers a glimpse into our tendencies to be irrational in the face of adversity: risk, uncertainty and complexity. The second purpose is to offer a new perspective to aid in managing risky, and in particular uncertain and complex projects. The authors go beyond commonly-accepted standards in project management with the aim of providing an understanding of how to implement project-wide resilience. The purpose is to guide, not to prescribe. It is best used as a trigger for a thinking process to define your own unique approach to managing uncertainty, not to replace your experience and judgement. Ultimately, it has been written to challenge traditional wisdom in project management, and to address the rationale for creative best practices.

Quotes from the Edge of Nowhere: The Art of Noticing Unnoticed Wisdom By: Gary Lewis LeRoy, MD. This book is about a twenty- to forty-year life journey. It recounts ten randomly selected personal quotes, saved in a cookie jar, and creates a life-learning narrative using the origin of the quote. Each story evolves by looking back at the signposts and hints of wisdom sprinkled along the author’s life path. Many of these events whispered subtle quotes of wisdom to his conscience. It was up to the author to make sense of them or proceed on life’s path, having missed an opportunity to obtain wisdom. All of us are on a similar journey cluttered with obstacles of the human condition. It is the author’s desire that this little book of hope and inspiration will serve as a torchlight to illuminate the way on the reader’s journey toward a more joyful life—one filled with knowledge, truth, and wisdom.

There has been much focus on the role and importance of spirituality in the human experience. By contrast, little focus has been placed on the potential relationship between spirit and working, especially not within major corporate institutions. Corporate Storyteller: The Art of Noticing Things, is an attempt to do just this. By intermingling contemporary management theory and practices such as empowerment, readers will experience a fresh and innovative perspective -- one that corporations and individuals can use to improve how they accomplish results. Portraying storytelling as a way of communicating vision, motivating people and producing results, Corporate Storyteller describes how stories can play a critical role in creating understanding about organizational mission and helping individuals lead more enriched lives. Through experience with stories, readers will see how individuals can learn to examine their beliefs more deeply, become aware or their inner passion as these beliefs come to consciousness and experience the inspirations and accomplishments that come when living in accordance with those beliefs. Indeed, daring to bring truth and love to the workplace can bring great rewards for people and the organization they are a part -- as passion becomes part of the natural flow of daily life. The current American business environment requires all workers to be transfixed on adding value to their company bottom line. Daily activities must be measured against the contribution they make toward achieving some business goal. Corporate Storyteller provides a provocative examination of where work and life, routine and passion, intersect. It will help people consider a new reality, point out some fallacies they assume to be facts and help transform beliefs from limiting to limitless.

The Art of Travel is a wise and utterly original book. Don’t leave home without it.
Author: Alain De Botton
Any Baedeker will tell us where we ought to travel, but only Alain de Botton will tell us how and why. With the same intelligence and insouciant charm he brought to How Proust Can Save Your Life, de Botton considers the pleasures of anticipation; the allure of the exotic, and the value of noticing everything from a seascape in Barbados to the takeoffs at Heathrow. Even as de Botton takes the reader along on his own peregrinations, he also cites such distinguished fellow-travelers as Baudelaire, Wordsworth, Van Gogh, the biologist Alexander von Humboldt, and the 18th-century eccentric Xavier de Maistre, who catalogued the wonders of his bedroom. The Art of Travel is a wise and utterly original book. Don’t leave home without it.
