December 3, 2007

DARLINGTON, SC – November 30, 2007 – WENG, Attitude of Growth After Intellectual Failure, the first book from Jamaica Mann, is now available for purchase at major online booksellers or requested from local bookstores.

The book, an introspective journey validating the value of discipline in life, summarizes Mann’s 20-year-career in management and training as well as his passionate pursuit of education. WENG, an acronym literally translated “Wits End Now Greatness,” coaches readers’ understanding that the limits of experience and learning are merely a springboard to achieving personal and collective wellbeing and realizing life’s purpose.

“WENG illustrates with personal anecdotes that when at the end of one’s perceived ‘intellectual rope,’ there still remains the opportunity for our greatest discovery – the fact that we are untapped powerhouses of potentials,” said Mann. “This book takes you to an internal place and awakens the attitude of driving achievement.”

Mann utilizes these principles in his other passion of promoting economic development in Darlington and other rural areas of South Carolina by joining forces with the S.C. Export Consortium and the S.C. Community Enterprise Center (SCCEC) and its related organization, the S.C. Women’s Business Center (SCWBC).

“I have a vested interest in helping to promote the growth and advancement of the Darlington community through effective collaboration,” said Mann. “SCCEC and SCWBC provide Darlington valuable opportunities to collectively grow through education, training and financial resources.”

“WENG’s principles are a foundation of finding greatness through relentless pursuit of continuous advancement and the betterment of the population,” said Haidee Stith, executive director of the S.C. Community Enterprise Center and the S.C. Women’s Business Center. “Mann’s ideals are a perfect complement to our economic development programs in Darlington and other rural areas of South Carolina.”
