Produktbeschreibung
A penniless émigré who made a fortune and became one of the great philanthropists of the twentieth century, George Soros has led a remarkable life. This biography brings forth his story in unprecedented depth, from his childhood as a Jew in occupied Budapest during World War II to his conquests on Wall Street and the establishment of his philanthropic Open Society foundations. Soros offers exclusive glimpses at an often misunderstood man, revealing a shy character whose own struggle to escape the Nazis left him with the adamant belief that people of the world are entitled to live without the fear of oppression. Enigmatic, contradictory, and inspiring, George Soros is one of the most intriguing and globally influential men of our time. In this accomplished biography, written with Soros's cooperation, Michael T. Kaufman fully illuminates the man, his motivations, and his legacy.

Rezensionen
A fascinating account of one of the great men of our times. The New York Times Book Review

Masterly . . . [Kaufman] is a likable and intelligent narrator who writes with both insight and compassion. The Washington Post Book World

A flinty-eyed exposition of a brilliant capitalist, devoted provocateur, and accidental humanitarian. You come away believing it is possible to be a really rich man and a really good man after all. The New York Times

Kaufman excels at dissecting and explaining Soros's psychological makeup. Salon

Kaufman s biography of Soros meets a higher truth standard than most . . . A compelling narrative notable for its candor and breadth. The Plain Dealer

What s memorable about Kaufman s biography is its exploration of Soros as a man who satisfied his contemplative side not by making money but by finding visionary ways to spend it. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The enthralling story of an extraordinary individual. . . . Rewarding reading on several levels as an adventure story, as food for serious philosophical speculation, and as a peek into the world of high financial wheeling and dealing. Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Surprisingly even-handed. . . . A thoughtful analysis on the complex intersection of wealth and compassion. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Engaging. . . .To call Soros complex is an understatement. . . . Clearly written and thoroughly researched. San José Mercury News

A fascinating book about an exceedingly complicated and competitive man. The Jewish Advocate
