Introducing Ken Wilber Book Excerpt:

Ken Wilbers revolutionary thinking is beginning to shift the orientation of Western culture. Wilber combines his knowledge as mystic, scientist, psychologist and philosopher to create comprehensive concepts for understanding our world and our place in it. This integral approach is much needed in a world torn by conflicts of religion, culture, and ideology. Lew Howard says, I wrote this book to make the work of Ken Wilber accessible to the average person. Wilbers integral understanding (which is an interlocking whole) is broken down into concepts that can be individually understood. These understandings result in an integral conception of the Kosmos. Wilbers insights revolutionized my spiritual practiceand can do the same for you.

Turtles All the Way Down Book Excerpt:

Rich with humor and metaphors from other cultures and disciplines, Turtles develops the characteristics common to the geniuses whose patterning formed the initial body of NLP techniques. You will learn how these skills are readily available for cultivating your own personal genius in a way that is respectful of the power of the unconscious. This book is the documentary, with added notes and stories, of Grinder/Delozier's five day seminar called "Prerequisites To Personal Genius." John Grinder and Judith Delozier get their participants to think about the structure of thinking; how our thought patterns become our beliefs about reality. The limitations of those thought patterns can be overcome, however, when a person is able to expand his/her perceptual filters and model "geniuses" -- this is the process which has been shown in the lives of people such as Einstein, Milton Erickson, and Gregory Bateson. Throughout the book, the authors challenge you to reexamine the structures of your "mind" and the ways that all parts can be integrated in an internal dance.

Dancing Skeletons Book Excerpt:

One of the most widely used ethnographies published in the last twenty years, this Margaret Mead Award winner has been used as required reading at more than 600 colleges and universities. This personal account by a biocultural anthropologist illuminates not-soon-forgotten messages involving the sobering aspects of fieldwork among malnourished children in West Africa. With nutritional anthropology at its core, Dancing Skeletons presents informal, engaging, and oftentimes dramatic stories that relate the author’s experiences conducting research on infant feeding and health in Mali. Through fascinating vignettes and honest, vivid descriptions, Dettwyler explores such diverse topics as ethnocentrism, culture shock, population control, breastfeeding, child care, the meaning of disability and child death in different cultures, female circumcision, women’s roles in patrilineal societies, the dangers of fieldwork, and facing emotionally draining realities. Readers will laugh and cry as they meet the author’s friends and informants, follow her through a series of encounters with both peri-urban and rural Bambara culture, and struggle with her as she attempts to reconcile her very different roles as objective ethnographer, subjective friend, and mother in the field. The 20th Anniversary Edition includes a 13-page “Q&A with the Author” in which Dettwyler responds to typical questions she has received individually from students who have been assigned Dancing Skeletons as well as audience questions at lectures on various campuses. The new 23-page “Update on Mali, 2013” chapter is a factual update about economic and health conditions in Mali as well as a brief summary of the recent political unrest.

What s Luck Got to Do with It Book Excerpt:

The American dream of equal opportunity is in peril. America's economic inequality is shocking, poverty threatens to become a heritable condition, and our healthcare system is crumbling despite ever increasing costs. In this thought-provoking book, Edward D. Kleinbard demonstrates how the failure to acknowledge the force of brute luck in our material lives exacerbates these crises leading to warped policy choices that impede genuine equality of opportunity for many Americans. What's Luck Got to Do with It? combines insights from economics, philosophy, and social psychology to argue for government's proper role in addressing the inequity of brute luck. Kleinbard shows how well-designed public investment can blunt the worst effects of existential bad luck that private insurance cannot reach and mitigate inequality by sharing the costs across the entire risk pool, which is to say, all of us. The benefits, as Kleinbard shares in a wealth of data, are economic as well as social a more inclusive economy, higher national income, and greater life satisfaction for millions of Americans. Like it or not, our lives and opportunities are determined largely by luck. Kleinbard shows that while we can't undo every instance of misfortune, we can offer a path to not just a fairer America, but greater economic growth, more broadly shared.

Where s Wilber At Book Excerpt:

"The most profound and satisfying book to date about the cutting edge of Ken Wilber's integral vision. Reynolds leads us with clarity step by step through the most complex and subtle aspects of Wilber's thinking about post modernity, post-metaphysical theory, the perennial philosophy, the Combs/Wilber matrix, and much more. Highly recommended for those who want to keep up with one of the great intellectual path-finders of our generation." -Allan Combs, Ph.D., University of North Carolina. author of The Radiance of Being: Understanding the Grand Integral Vision; Living the Integral Life "Ken Wilber continues to push the boundaries of knowledge to ever more profound and encompassing reaches, and Brad Reynolds continues to follow him and provide lucid, compelling commentaries. I am impressed by how thoroughly Reynolds has mastered Wilber's work." -Roger Walsh, M.D., Ph.D., University of California, author of Essential Spirituality: The Seven Central Practices "Brad Reynolds has written an eloquent, passionate, beautiful book about my ideas. I believe it will help many people come to an appreciation of a more inclusive, more comprehensive, more integral way to think and feel about the world, and to find a happy, realized, awakened place in it."-Ken Wilber, author of A Theory of Everything Incorporating a vast range of disciplines and research, Wilber's "Integral Vision" is currently defined as being an A-Q-A-L or "all-quadrant, all-level" approach to integral studies (the integration of body, mind, soul, and spirit with self, culture, and nature), therefore the reader will be introduced to Wilber's new integral language and his underlying organizing framework, including his most recent "Phase-5." With this book the reader will learn the basic essentials needed to follow Wilber's continual theoretical expansion (including his forthcoming books) and their pragmatic application, as well as reviewing his current public outreach, such as with the Integral Institute, Integral University, and his growing presence on the worldwide web. By simplifying the details of his complex metatheory, or "where Wilber's coming from," the reader discovers how this integral approach is capable of uniting the knowledge of modern science with the depth and meanings of ancient mysticism, thus transforming the Great Chain of Being into a comprehensive post-metaphysical AQAL Matrix of Spirit-in-action. This evolutionary model also includes a cross-cultural integral psychology that seamlessly integrates East and West, thus clarifying today's confusing spectrum of collective worldviews and the universal stages of individual growth, as well as much, much more. Indeed, the unprecedented integrative power of Wilber's vision and its expanded influence in the first decade of the new millennium is laying the positive foundations for an "integral revolution," or better, a natural evolution to a higher-order worldwide consciousness to which we are all invited, and with which this book will be a helpful user-friendly guide on this exciting adventure.
