About the Author

Profit Magazine reported: "Imagine you are a teenage physics genius who quickly amasses a $300 million empire of real estate and banking ventures, has dozens of cars, six hundred employees, several mansions and two hundred bodyguards—but you are nonetheless kidnapped by those you trusted, threatened with torture and death, and have your entire empire stolen from you one dark night in Budapest. You escape with your life by racing through Eastern-block countries and flying to New York on stashed-away passports—only to have the KGB and Russian Mafia hell-bent on your hide and the U.S. government jailing you and conspiring to serve you up into their clutches. All this before your 29th birthday. Sound like a Tom Clancy thriller? No. . . just a slice in the life of Alexander Konanykhine."

This book reads like a "seat of your pants thriller," and then you remember - this happened in real life! This is a must-read for anyone who loves spy thrillers or stories about people who rise to the top of their given profession and still continue to innovate. It's a remarkable tale of a man the KGB was after for years and who narrowly escaped Russia. Undeterred, he came to the United States and began building an empire. Now, he wants to change society yet again. I highly recommend this book because one day this man will be side by side with some of the tech giants (think Jobs and Gates).
