The book is compact without being dense, and takes the reader through a guided tour of the soft skills domain. It is an interesting and informative excursion. Given the importance of the subject matter of this book to learn more about academic topics as well as life skills through some leading questions, through these academic knowledge and soft skills, and given the orderly and stimulating manner in which the subject has been presented, it can be predicted that the book would see several reprints in the years to come. I recommend this book to people who could use any of the principles and concepts to teach the Math and Science curriculum and to reinforce the soft skills both in the classroom and outside of it. It is also a great book to people who have fun in teaching while picking up new concepts in academic knowledge and soft skills.” Dr Nugroho J Setiadi Head of Institute for Research and Community Services Widyatama University Bundung, West Java Indonesia “This book uses the concepts of Math and Science to instill into the minds of young inquirers. The games created in this book, is also a valuable tool for Team Development in an Outdoor Experimental Laboratory. It helps to create the good leadership styles, teamwork and interpersonal skills, which are sought after by many business corporations of today. It is a simple approach but practical, to reduce the complexity of the human interactions in a corporation. This is another way towards Team Change Management.” Dr Richard Ng Management Professor University of the Philippines “Henri-Frédéric Amie, the Swiss philosopher, poet and criticm, once said that “Man becomes man only by his intelligence, but he is man only by his heart”. We can be the most intelligent person in the world, but it is the matters of the heart that makes us truly human. Knowledge of Science and Math, the traditional “brain” subjects, are undoubtedly essential in today's technological age but life consists of more than one dimension. The world, more and more, is crying out not just for clever men and women but also for those with true character in their hearts. This book has seized upon a brilliant idea of integrating the teaching of Science and Math with elements of emotional and social education, by exploring themes like honesty, teamwork, flexibility. The fun and interesting games, elegantly simple but enormously effective, will certainly open the eyes of the students to see Science and Math with a new perspective on how the various aspects of the total human experience are interrelated. Fellow teachers will find this most useful. And it is a book I wish my own teachers had when I was a student!” Mr Chen Khin Wee Associate Faculty, School of Art and Social Sciences SIM University, Singapore “What a refreshing way to look at Maths and Science! Games can bring just enduring understanding in abstract mathematical and scientific concepts and they help every learner experience and learn them through an innovatively kinaesthetic way. The author has also ingenuously connect these games to character building and leadership principles. Brilliant! Now we have mathematical and scientific thinking and reasoning brought into more authentic contexts and the child benefits a multitude of ways. I commend this book as a unique resource for any classroom and learning context.” Mrs Corinne Sim Vice Principal Methodist Girls' School, Singapore “This amazing new book sets forth interesting games that will increase your science and math skills. Whether you're training to become a group leader, are a science teacher or student, an organizer of a nerd party, or simply a curious bystander. This book encourages people to learn, practice science, and have fun at the same time. I can't wait for my kids to be big enough to try it out with them.” Dr Matjaž Kuntner Scientific Research Centre Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Slovenia “It gives an opportunity to school teachers to take some of these games and fully experiment them in their different aspects: playful, science learning, and developing aptitudes. ” European Mathematical Society

For thirty-three years and through three editions, Bass & Stogdill's Handbook of Leadership has been the indispensable bible for every serious student of leadership. Since the third edition came out in 1990, the field of leadership has expanded by an order of magnitude. This completely revised and updated fourth edition reflects the growth and changes in the study of leadership over the past seventeen years, with new chapters on transformational leadership, ethics, presidential leadership, and executive leadership. Throughout the Handbook, the contributions from cognitive social psychology and the social, political, communications, and administrative sciences have been expanded. As in the third edition, Bernard Bass begins with a consideration of the definitions and concepts used, and a brief review of some of the betterknown theories. Professor Bass then focuses on the personal traits, tendencies, attributes, and values of leaders and the knowledge, intellectual competence, and technical skills required for leadership. Next he looks at leaders' socioemotional talents and interpersonal competencies, and the differences in these characteristics in leaders who are imbued with ideologies, especially authoritarianism, Machiavellianism, and self-aggrandizement. A fuller examination of the values, needs, and satisfactions of leaders follows, and singled out for special attention are competitiveness and the preferences for taking risks. In his chapters on personal characteristics, Bass examines the esteem that others generally accord to leaders as a consequence of the leaders' personalities. The many theoretical and research developments about charisma over the past thirty years are crucial and are explored here in depth. Bass has continued to develop his theory of transformational leadership -- the paradigm of the last twenty years -- and he details how it makes possible the inclusion of a much wider range of phenomena than when theory and modeling are limited to reinforcement strategies. He also details the new incarnations of transformational leadership since the last edition. Bass has greatly expanded his consideration of women and racial minorities, both of whom are increasingly taking on leadership roles. A glossary is included to assist specialists in a particular academic discipline who may be unfamiliar with terms used in other fields. Business professors and students, executives in every industry, and politicians at all levels have relied for years on the time-honored guidance and insight afforded by the Handbook.

Accumulated research findings in past decades have led to the common knowledge that teachers’ professional knowledge is essential to effective classroom instruction. However, there is still very limited understanding about the nature of teachers’ expertise in mathematics instruction. Expertise in Mathematics Instruction addresses this need clearly and concisely. In particular, it examines all aspects of emphases employed to characterize the nature of expertise in mathematics instruction from both researchers’ and practitioners’ perspectives. Moreover, with research contributions from both the East and the West, this book also examines ideas pertinent to fostering and demonstrating expertise in mathematics instruction within different system contexts. This book will raise questions and issues for mathematics education researchers to guide a critical examination of what can be learned from other education systems. Expertise in Mathematics Instruction builds on its theoretical and methodological approach with contributions from international experts in the field. Additionally, a review of related research from mathematics education serves as an introduction to the new research in both Eastern and Western settings. Concluding this resource is a reflection on the benefits of this international collaboration and possible research directions for the future. The final chapter cohesively joins traditional and current research for action. Expertise in Mathematics Instruction is of interest to researchers in mathematics education, mathematics teacher educators, and mathematics educators.
