Merrick Rosenberg has written three award-winning books about the bird styles...and his fourth, a children’s book called, Which Bird are You? is on it’s way. Each of these books incorporates the Eagle, Parrot, Dove and Owl styles.
Taking Flight!, the book that started it all, introduces the four birds in an entertaining fable. The story is followed by insights to help people better understand and apply the four styles. The Chameleon is a series of 22 fables, each teaching a different lesson about the birds. Each fable is followed by a Chameleon Wisdom section that deepens the reader’s knowledge on how to use styles throughout one’s life.
Merrick described writing Taking Flight! as like writing a movie with a story arc that follows the four birds and all-knowing Chameleon on an adventure of self-discovery. He captures his experience in writing The Chameleon like writing an entire season of a sitcom. Some fables (or episodes) include all of the birds. Some include just a few. And most include the wise and adaptable Chameleon.
Personality Wins applies the birds in a way that has never been done before. Merrick infused the birds into presidential elections. This book is about personality not politics. Readers will discover that the four bird styles played a driving role in every presidential election going back to 1932. Who will take the presidency? Look no further than the bird style of the candidates.
The Chameleon was awarded the Gold Award by Reader’s Favorite and its audiobook was honored with the highest award among all audiobooks for 2021. Taking Flight! was recognized as a finalist for the 2012 International Book Awards and Personality Wins was selected as a finalist in the 2021 International Book Awards.
