Last December we launched our stimulating Author Speaks Series to provide a platform for leading scientists and experts writing high-quality brain-related books to share their insights with SharpBrains readers. Participants so far include (in order of appearance):
|Larry McCleary, M.D, former acting Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Denver Children’s Hospital, and author of The Brain Trust Program: A Scientifically Based Three-Part Plan to Improve Memory (Perigee Trade, 2007) presents a thoughtful post on Brain Evolution and Health.|
|Joanne Jacobs, education blogger and author of Our School: The Inspiring Story of Two Teachers, One Big Idea, and the School That Beat the Odds, writes an excellent article on why The First Step Is Failure.|
|Daniel Goleman, author of many books including Destructive Emotions: A Scientific Dialogue with the Dalai Lama, presents a superb article on The Power of Mindsight.|
|Eric Jensen, founder of Learning Brain Expo, and author of Enriching the Brain: How to Maximize Every Learner’s Potential, grants us a great interview on Learning and the Brain.|
|Shannon Moffett, author of The Three Pound Enigma: The Human Brain and the Quest to Unlock its Mysteries, and expert quoted on PBS Special The Brain Fitness Program, summarizes important research on Sleep, Memory and the Brain.|
|John Medina, Director of the Brain Center for Applied Learning Research at Seattle Pacific University, and author of Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School, brings brain research to daily life in his Brain Rules: science and practice article.|
If you have specific brain-related books and authors you are interested in, please let us know, and we will contact them. We are always looking for new perspectives.
If you are an author or an agent and would like to propose writing a 700-1,000 word article to introduce your book and work to our audience, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating Author Speaks Series in the subject line and providing a few details on the book and your article ideas.
Enjoy the weekend
