About Brian Wu

Brian Wu, a 7th year MD/PhD, is on track to finishing his PhD in 2014 and has a goal to becoming a Sports Medicine Physician with a focus on holistic care and treatment.
The idea for writing the Storybook Illustrated Guides first occurred to Brian as a fifth grader, when he wrote a story "Wacky Olympics and Body Wars", which is a personification of the immune system and how our bodies fight disease. Since then, the idea has matured over the years and the result is nothing short of astonishing. Brian has created a revolutionary series of books that raises the bar where children’s health education is concerned. There’s nothing else like the SIGuides on the market today.
Brian believes children should understand medical conditions they acquire, so that they can take good care of themselves and lead full lives. He has a way of writing about complex medical topics at a level that children comprehend. Brian understands the value of empowering children with diseases, enabling them to play an active role in their own treatment and recovery process.
Brian values the ability for all ages to learn from the power of stories. He has the passion to share his love of science and medicine through these stories with the world. The power of storytelling stems from the fact that stories can teach without overbearing. Learning comes naturally when engaging both logical and creative sides of the brain. The facts surrounding each disease appeal to the logical side, making the story engaging and the learning fun. Brian knows that if he can help even a single person then the project will be well worth it.
Brian’s interests include writing and entrepreneurship. He is married and loves his wife dearly.

About the Series: Storybook Illustrated Guides (SIGuides)
Disease can be a difficult thing to cope with no matter what your age, but it is especially difficult for children who may not have the intellectual framework to fully understand what’s going on inside them. It can also be extremely trying for the parents and caregivers because no one wants to see a child suffer. That’s what makes our SIGuides so important. They fill a need that’s not being met by anything else on the market. Yes, there are books written for adults about caring for sick children. Yes, there’s plenty of material about every disease known to man on the web, but there’s no other resource available that puts the details about the disease in the context of a children’s story to make it accessible to the kids with the condition and explains it to them in language they can understand and in a way that they can relate to.
