About the Author

Two other books by Bob have won international awards. He writes in several genres: historical fiction, contemporary, science fiction, psychology, and practical self-help. He is also a professional editor, a counselling psychologist, and several other things that are none of your business. His writing showcase is, while his counselling site is

Currently one of the joys of his life is to be a profess-sional grandfather to young people of various ages. Some of them are actually related to him. He has taken root on a magic mountain to such an extent that sometimes he feels inside as if he was a mountain ash tree. Only, this one is impervious to chainsaws.
Bob has made sense of the nasty things in his infancy, childhood and youth by working with people who struggle with their own monsters: depression, anxiety and other ways we make ourselves and each other miserable. He is very good at this, but is a terrible businessman. Unlike his mother, he has a disinclination to turn his skills into money beyond an essential minimum. If you want to know why he is so crazy, read

Bob believes that there are only two kinds of people: conservationists and suicides. Since 1972, he has devoted his life to working for a sustainable future. Find out about his conservation interests at

Also there is his newsletter ‘bobbing around’. This is an e-zine that is controversial, instructive, entertaining, but never boring. Have a look at several years of archives at

Aniko: The Stranger Who Loved Me by Dr Bob Rich is a book that should be required reading world wide. Masterfully laying out for our dissection and observation the horrors of war, the evils of discrimination, the devastation of greed and the destruction of politicking while at the same time experiencing the very strength of all that is good in the human condition. Dr Bob Rich draws the reader into the story. Aniko should have been diminished by the very barriers that were erected before her, but she rose above the barriers with intelligence, wit, charm, and an abiding sense of what she knew to be right and true and good. Aniko creates for herself and her family a future that is stripped from her, and she recreates the future only to have it also stripped from her. Friends, family members and mentors taken from her in one manner or another, many of them killed and yet Aniko rises again and again. The straw that should have broke the camels back came when the man she adored and loved sent her first born son, Robi Reich away from Hungary to Australia with a disgruntled uncle. On the other side of the world the adolsecent Robi Reich rose above his own barriers of being an adolescent immigrant half a world away from his family and evolved into the masterful author, Dr Bob Rich, a professional grandfather, a revered and respected clinical psychologist, a global environmentalist, mudsmith, and a darn good bloke. If I have not convinced you to buy and read this book, the failing is with me, not with the book or the author!
