)-- New Chapter Press, in conjunction with Citrus Bits, have announced the launch of “The Honey Badger Game” – a mobile game application on sale from the iTunes Store for use on iPhones and other Apple accessories.
The game was inspired by pop culture interest in the Honey Badger and to help promote the new book published by New Chapter Press called “Lessons from the Wild” – a motivational book that draws inspiration from an inconspicuous group of wild animals including the Honey Badger, which graces the book’s cover.
Designed by Citrus Bits, a San Jose / New York based technology firm providing SharePoint consultancy, E-Commerce, Web development (CMS) and Internet marketing services, the Honey Badger game, available for purchase for 99 cents here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-honey-badger-game/id519011151?mt=8, determines whether players are as fast and fearless as the Honey Badger, regarded as one of the most fearless creatures in the animal kingdom. The object of the game is for the Honey Badger to eat as many cobras, mice and bee larva from the desert as fast as one can, while avoiding a jackals looking to steal food and decrease a player’s point value. How fast one can eat determines what level Honey Badger you are.
The game also features “The Honey Badger Song” recorded and co-written by singer, songwriter Chloe Bean of New York City. The song cane be purchased directly here on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-honey-badger-song-single/id512081727
More information on “The Honey Badger Game” as well as the “The Honey Badger Song” and the book “Lessons from the Wild” – as well as other related merchandise – can be found and purchased on the associated website www.HoneyBadgerThings.com
“Lessons from the Wild” was written by Shayamal Vallabhjee, a new age entrepreneur, lecturer and sports and exercise scientist. Vallabhjee works with such clients as Wimbledon and US Open doubles champions Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes, the Indian Davis Cup team and business leaders in Europe, India and Africa.
“Lessons from the Wild is the first book of its kind that takes simple life lessons like courage, persistence and uses unique animal stories from the wild to exemplify that lesson,” said Vallabhjee. “Lessons from the Wild will make an excellent gift for any person needing some light reading, college students, children and business people looking for alternate motivational sources.”
Lessons and animals that are discussed in the book include fearlessness (the story of the honey badger), teamwork (the story of snow geese), courage (the story of the bottlenose dolphin), independence, the story of the anaconda), effort (the story of the beaver), compassion (the story of the African elephant)
Mahesh Bhupathi, the Wimbledon, U.S. and French Open doubles champion, wrote the foreword to Lessons from the Wild, saying, “Lessons from the Wild opened my mind to a whole new world — a world were self-belief, preparation, confidence, determination, integrity and trust take on new meaning.”
Wrote 1996 Olympic bronze medalist Leander Paes of Lessons from the Wild, “As an athlete, the animal instinct is the most important ingredient – the ability to understand your opponent, be in-tune with the elements, recognize an opportunity or push your body and mind beyond its barriers. Lessons from the Wild highlights this wild, natural instinct which, when coupled with intelligence, is very potent.”
Said U.S. and French Open doubles champion Max Mirnyi of the book, “Lessons from the Wild is an all-inspiring account of useful life material. I’m positive that anyone who opens up and reads through these pages will find both useful and very encouraging material throughout the entire book. Shayamal has made a lot of input in my career and I’m sure through this book, he will help you as well.
