Simply Genius!: Tales from a Life Beyond the Box by Ervin Laszlo

Autobiographies usually recount the life of a person who achieved wide acclaim in one field. This book describes the life of someone who achieved international acclaim in three fields and lived as many lives in a single lifetime.

Ervin Laszlo was a child prodigy on the piano and grew up to become an internationally celebrated virtuoso. By the time he reached his 40s, he was a famous scientist and philosopher, having written a dozen books and a hundred articles, as well as teaching in major universities in Europe, the U.S., and the Far East. A few years later, he gained world renown as a global visionary, heading research programs at the United Nations and founding an international think tank (the Club of Budapest).

But this book is not an autobiography in the traditional sense. In Laszlo’s own words, “I don’t like talking about myself, about what makes me tick and why. Writing about all the things that have happened to me is different. This is storytelling—the telling of a real, lived story: my story, as it unfolded over the years.”

This inspiring book is really about living and enjoying life despite its ups and downs and some narrow escapes. It’s about not putting up with what people say you should and should not do, but looking around, asking questions, and following your own intuition. It’s about not staying stuck, but moving with the flow.

Join the author on his remarkable journey from his adventures as a globe-trotting young concert artist to his pursuit of understanding and positively changing the world . . . which led to his shift from music to science and philosophy, and finally to global activism.
