Ever since Alfred Binet invented the first IQ test more than a century ago, we have thought of intelligence as fixed from birth and unalterable-as genetically programmed and immutable as eye color. If our IQ was 115 at the age of eighteen, it would be 115 at age thirty-two and at age seventy-two. But as Michael Martinez reveals in Future Bright, human intelligence is not at all a static quality. Drawing on cutting-edge research, Martinez shows that not only can we improve our IQ scores--with the right approach, we can improve intelligence itself. Future Bright introduces the radical view that intelligence can be learned. Ranging from the search for Einstein's brain to the curious case of a railroad worker whose frontal lobe was pierced by a tamping iron, Martinez looks at some of the most fascinating stories in the history of cognitive science, revealing how researchers have sought insight into intelligence by understanding more about the brain. We see how the physical structures of the brain relate to how we think, discover how memories are made, and examine the several kinds of intelligence. Martinez then explores the astonishing evidence from recent cognitive science that intelligence can be learned. Equally important, he concludes with ten strategies for enhancing our intelligence, beginning with the all-important idea of making improved intelligence a conscious goal, and including such ideas as reading books, learning to be an expert, finding where our talents lie and, not least, eating well and exercising, both of which improve brain function significantly. Genetics is only one of the factors that shape our intelligence. Future Bright highlights the many ways that the environment and education can increase our brain power, promoting the growth of a more intelligent society--one that will lead us into a brighter future indeed.

How to use philosophy and music to open your horizons and enjoy being yourself, put theory to work, and help you experience personal growth is discussed in A Marriage of Philosophy and Music. It is all about "after." After having a liberal education, you are comfortable in modern culture, and after further education and becoming a specialist in some field, you enjoy using your skills. We learn the ideas and methods of many social cultures and our own chosen specialty, but we often neglect the liberal art of disciplining and enjoying the ideas and methods of our own individuality. This book offers a path toward the education of privacy, with the key words being selection, design, and beauty. The book relates five areas of general human interest: spirituality, philosophy, science, art, and body awareness. The interrelation is accomplished by using personal patterns of experience that are available from philosophy and music. Because of the plurality of subject matters and methods used in philosophy and music, their patterns of discipline are comparable to self-discipline. A Marriage of Philosophy and Music attempts to create a path in this direction, because besides the enjoyment of social culture and personal skills, there is enjoyment in being yourself, which is a neglected liberal art.

Transformation is a process of bringing radical change to the context that sets a new direction and takes the organization to an entirely different level of effectiveness with little to no resemblance to the past. There is always a need for positive change and for transforming people’s lives regardless of what has been achieved so far by the organization or the society. There is always room for people to dream big, think big, make a difference, and make an impact to bring about transformative change. Transformation is required in virtually any field, whether it is business, technology, education, health care, banking, agriculture, politics, poverty reduction, entertainment, transportation, cities, or manufacturing. Transforming an organization or the lives of people within a society is purely a leadership-based mission that requires a creative and innovative mind-set. The aspects of the transformation process include purpose-driven vision, creativity, innovation, design thinking, agile transformation, cultural transformation, digital capabilities, human experience transformation, and business model transformation. Transformational leadership is about envisioning the future and making it brighter by way of bringing about transformative change. Transformational leaders must be courageous and empathetic. Several qualities that transformational leaders need to possess in order to embrace transformation include vision, creativity, inspiration, courage, collaboration, commitment, empathy, and emotional intelligence. These aspects, along with their appropriate components and subcomponents, are discussed in The Art and Science of Transformational Leadership.
