“Ignorance is Contagious” – Aesop’s Fables for a New Generation?
“Ig.no.rant – Pronunciation: (ig-ner-uh nt)
Definitions: 1. (Caribbean) a quarrelsome and aggressive attitude; 2. Lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned.
Con.ta.gion – Pronunciation: (kuh n-tey-juh n)
Definition: (Literary) the spreading of an attitude or emotion from person to person among a number of people.”
Prompted by a lackluster reaction during a routine speaking engagement, Abdul and James endeavor to reach an audience who are more accustomed to sound bytes than lectures, and two minute videos than two hour movies that don’t include a car chase or gunfire.
… The stories are both relatable, and hysterical, with dead on advice that make you go hmmmm. - Karim Orange, Eco activist/ Huffington Post Blogger
… His writing style is natural with flow and above all, his wit is wise. -Emily Cohen, Television Producer
…Fresh, innovative, enlightening, and (what I love most) comical… Ignorance Is Contagious offers alternative solutions for those situations when keeping it real goes wrong. -Pretty Ricki Fontaine, Comedian
Although Abdul and James are brothers, two peas in a pod they are not.
Abdul has a brash, sarcastic sense of humor, often provoking those who read his internet posts with “politically-incorrect” statements just to see who ends up on which side of the fence and can best sustain their arguments. He writes the stories.
James is the soft-spoken older brother, and known to encourage and enlighten his readers as he does with his first book, Amazon.com best seller, “Evolve,” and a series of inspirational Youtube videos. He writes the lessons.
What these two intelligent men share is a real camaraderie and the desire to create something that has a meaningful impact on a new generation. Their book, Ignorance is Contagious, seems to be the perfect blend of both their strengths and points of view.
