Pocket Guide to Brilliance-Product Description
Punctuated with both sharp and dry wit, Bart King presents a wealth of
Brilliant people are those who walk father, think deeper, and talk
louder than the rest of us. They do what it takes to get the job done,
and then some.
Learn from masters of brilliance like:
- The first female journalist, Anne Royall, who forced an interview
with John Quincy Adams by stealing his clothes while he was skinny
- Candidate John Lindsay, who released chickens at a speech by his
opponent, George Wallace, in order to shame Wallace into a debate.
- Benjamin Franklin, the originator of phrases like "A learned
blockhead is a greater blockhead than an ignorant one," and "A man who
lives on hope, dies farting."
Bart King, a self-proclaimed "dabbler," is interested in games, magic,
current events, music, chess, history, literature, geography, travel,
crime, science fiction, art, and almost everything else! The veteran of
many water-balloon wars, he's twice won the prized "Arrested
Development" award from the New York Society of Amateur Psychologists.
He earned a master's degree in history from Sonoma State University and
has taught middle school for the past fifteen years.
Bart's work has been featured in The
Oregonian, The Portland
Tribune, Chicago Parent,
Family Fun magazine and many
other publications. He has also appeared on dozens of television and
radio programs including the widely syndicated "Bob and Tom Show."
Not only is Bart a wild and crazy boy, he's also the author of
Big Book of Boy Stuff. Bart subsequently co-authored The
Book of Girl Stuff with his five sisters and 50 former students.
