An autobiography usually recounts the life of a person who has achieved wide acclaim in one field. But this extraordinary book describes the life of someone who has achieved international acclaim in three fields! Ervin Laszlo was a child prodigy on the piano and grew up to become an internationally celebrated virtuoso. By the time he reached his 40s however he had become a famous scientist and philosopher and had written a dozen books and more than a hundred articles. He also taught at major universities in Europe the U.S. and the Far East. Shortly thereafter he gained world renown as a global visionary heading research programs at the United Nations and founding an international think tank (the Club of Budapest). But this book is not an autobiography in the traditional sense. In Laszlos own words: I dont like talking about myself about what makes me tick and why. Writing about all the things that have happened to me is different. This is storytellingthe telling of a real lived story: my story as it unfolded over the years. Join the author on his remarkable journey from his days as an internationally acclaimed concert pianist . . . to his profoundly personal quest to effect positive global transformation!
