Introducing Jade Yu, author of ICPTheory.com: The First 100

“My Author Rep – Dana – went above and beyond to help me resolve all issues to my complete satisfaction and surpassed my expectations of a professional. Dana should be commended on all levels as she is a truly superstellar Rep. I have 12 more books I want to publish and really hope she continues to be my Rep (if she will have me).”

Jade Yu is an artist, writer, and philosopher from California. In 2014, she published the first volume of a four-volume book defining her philosophy: Infinite Potentiality Theory (IPT). As her uniquely compelling worldview, IPT is her attempt to empower others to achieve their highest potential every day, inspiring all to their best self.

On 5 June 2014, I launched my blog, ICPTheory.com, as a compendium to my newly-released book: Igniting an East-West Globalizing Dialogue, Volume I: Thus Spoke Chuang Tzu. The blog is designed to bring the major concepts of my book into practical and everyday relevance to all individuals – across time, space, and geography – for immediate application and use. Through my blog, I answer the ‘so what factor’ (SWF) as to how and why Infinite Potentiality Theory is critically relevant. Ultimately, I encourage all individuals to be the best version of themselves through immediate, active, and unwavering realization of their infinite creative potentiality.

Phonetics in the Classroom: A Handbook for Beginners is a handbook that will prove invaluable to all students and teachers of Linguistics, and will also be useful to those working in other, connected fields. The aim of this handbook is to provide students with practical skills and a conceptual framework to do further work in phonetics. It will give training in the production, perception, physiological and acoustic description, and IPA transcription of the speech sounds used in the languages of the world. The main function of the handbook is to provide the essential background for beginners so that they can be equipped for further work in phonetics. The book introduces students to the sounds of languages in general while at the same focusing on the sounds of spoken English, with emphases on the description of consonants and vowels, the stress patterns of English, and the use and functions of English intonation. Throughout, hundreds of examples are given from the world’s languages although there is an obvious concentration on English.
