"The man does not live who is more devoted to peace than I am. None who would do more to preserve it. But it may be necessary to put the foot down firmly. And if I do my duty, and do right, you will sustain me, will you not?”   Abraham Lincoln, 21 February, 1861, in his address to the New Jersey General Assembly.

Whilst Election Day this November is an ‘off-year’ event with few special elections across the USA, it is a timely reminder of how important it is to choose ones leaders carefully and of course marks a milestone as we move towards the pivotal election in 2012.  November is an important month celebrating Thanksgiving, World Peace Day, Native American Heritage Month and Latin American Month, so it provides an opportunity to reflect on how great nations were established and built. 

The children of today are the leaders of tomorrow.  Are parents and educators getting it right?  The Amazing People Club has announced the development of its educational resources for teachers and students alike.  This is delivered via a new and unique BioView® story-telling method, which is a combination of biography and virtual interview.  It not only educates but also engages in a very entertaining manner.  One of the key aspects of the BioViews® is its emphasis on the importance of role models.  The resources have been trialled and tested by educators and students worldwide and received the following endorsement from Dave Jones, awarded the Pearson Head Teacher of the North Award 2008:- "In an age when immediate fame and celebrity are cynically dangled to fuel the hopes and visions of children and young people, the Amazing People Club's resources are a refreshing reminder of the power of role models to inspire the young. These materials represent an invaluable resource for schools. Written in the unique and engaging first person style of the BioView, pupils are invited to explore the exploits, achievements and motivations of remarkable individuals who have informed our thinking and shaped our world. They will be an invaluable stimulus to create dialogue and debate in citizenship work in schools."

The Amazing People Club is an international digital publishing company distributed by Hachette Book Group.  Founded by Dr. Charles Margerison, the Company produces educational and inspirational eBooks and Audios about iconic individuals who have made major contributions to our world.

www.amazingpeopleclub.com

In conjunction with the many educational events occurring around the globe this September, The Amazing People Club announces the development of its revolutionary and unique concept within the ever-growing area of ‘digital’ education. Imagine if William Shakespeare or Marie Curie and other famous achievers, like Mozart, Montessori, Einstein, or Piaf, returned today and gave an interview about their life and work.  By virtual means, the Company has re-created discussions with amazing people who were leaders in science, music, medicine, literature, politics, business, engineering, education and many other fields of endeavour.  The term BioView® represents the combination of ‘biography’ and ‘interview’, and the format has been trademarked so that it can be easily adapted around content or license.  The Amazing People Club is actively in the process of developing links with organizations with a firm interest in this sector whereby the titles in the series will be integrated as a component in a digital classroom or training environment, for use by educators and students alike.

A psychologist, business consultant, musician, composer, and author, Dr. Charles Margerison founded The Amazing People Club in 2006.  He is an innovator with a firm respect for achievers and leaders and the BioView® stories celebrate the ‘can do and will do’ spirit of creativity, confidence, entrepreneurialism, and more.  One of the greatest strengths of the collection is its range and diversity.  The Company’s keyword is ‘engagement’ and their products offer just this in an entertaining and educational manner. Each BioView® is a story of inspiration and triumph – they are stories that will encourage the reader to look at their own life and be inspired by the possibilities through the life stories of fascinating characters.    

As technology continues to surge forward, with the growth of mobile phones, iPad type tablets, internet television, etc. - expectations for audio-visual interaction increase.  The BioView® concept is a giant step forward in providing a more integrated approach to learning through the use of the series, enabling students to understand a range of issues and also providing the stimulus for exciting projects in various areas of study.  Teachers are provided with interactive, engaging content they can use effectively in the classroom.  To explore the series further, the following are some examples of their September promotions.

Developed by psychologist and entrepreneur Dr Charles Margerison, the unique BioView® format is a newly-developed concept in storytelling that combines a biography with a virtual interview, creating an entirely new way of engaging with the past that is both educational and entertaining.  Whatever your profession or interest, within our library there are stories that will speak to everyone in some way. The unique BioView® format makes the stories accessible and engaging, whether you are 16 or 60. You can gain a clear overview of our series at www.amazingpeopleclub.com. BioViews® are inspirational stories that can help you to achieve your ambitions on life's journey.

Covering a huge range of iconic individuals, the series from The Amazing People Club® offers an ideal way to be introduced to these remarkable people.   “I have written their life stories, as if they are talking to me personally. Each one can be read, or heard via an audio recording, in about 5 to 10 minutes.  The stories are available in an easy-to-read or easy-to-listen-to format. You can enjoy these stories on the train or bus to work, in your lunch break, or even while waiting for the kids to finish sports training,” says Dr Margerison.

The Amazing People Club titles are available in book, downloadable audio and eBook formats. The remarkable stories can be purchased individually or as collections.

The words in each BioView® are the author’s interpretation of their possible opinions, based on the research of what each individual did.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information, samples, author interviews etc.  Thank you for your time and we hope to meet you soon at www.amazingpeopleclub.com
