Hungarian born Ivan Gabor is a fascinating man of the world and a truly unique individual. Despite enduring savage beatings, near death events, starvation, incredible adversity, and the most traumatizing experiences that war can inflict, he remained upbeat. Nazis and all manner of fascists, assailed him from childhood and all the way through middle age, but they couldn't suppress his natural optimism and love of life. A self taught man of letters and an artist, he continues to confronts this world with confidence and a smile. His co-author, Jeffrey Beal, shares the same outlook, and perfectly compliments his subject. Named a top creative writer by the Miami Herald, Mr. Beal has written for a wide range of people, including film and television personalities and diplomats. He has authored and co-authored various other books.
