About the Author: Since early childhood, I have always had a strong fascination with Politics and Business; the story and motivation of individuals who shaped the world was always something very appealing to me. I was a complete nerd, always reading biographies and studying History, more concerned about the the people who shaped our society than the girls, games and parties my classmates were fonder of. I got an MBA from Columbia University Graduate School of Business, and a B.A. in Economics from Adelphi University. Since 1996, I have been an adjunct professor at Columbia University Graduate School of Business, where I teach courses on Business History, and I was a member of the Executive Advisory Board at Columbia Business School for more than 10 years. I am in my forties but still fascinated with celebrities. What makes a 'big man' so big, the genes, family? Is it a behaviour learnt at school? Or is it in the fortune? How much success is due to sheer luck, and how much come down to will power? Is it fate? I have written a number of bestsellers on these subjects: politicians, leaders, entertainers and celebrities, and I can honestly say writing and sharing my findings on these is a true passion of mine. Thank you for reading my books, I hope you learn through reading as much as I learned by writing them.
