New York, NY (PressExposure) December 20, 2007 -- Encyclopedia of the 21st Century. Biographies and Profiles of the First Decade. People Who Matter
Impressive and Authoritative. The greatest people of our time in 300 fields
This is not a book about celebrities, stars, the rich, or the famous. Of course, many of the people included in this book had achieved such status - but the status is the least important part of their lives. Rather, this book is about living people of our time who matter so much, who contribute, invent, create, cure, or nourish our souls and our minds, that we know that our world would not have been the same if they did not exist. The author had been innovative in his approach. Instead of uniform, traditional style that is highly informative but somewhat dry, he allowed the people in this book to speak for themselves. They are worth listening to, as they describe their lives, their parents, the love of their spouse, the joy of raising their children, even the bonding to their beloved pets. The personalities we view as titans become endearingly human.
It covers so many fields, that it should be a wonderful treat to jump from one subject to another, learn new things, and enjoy the ones we already love. Zoology, art, human rights, medicine, science, physiology, music, peace, literature, cinema, philanthropy, media, theater, poetry, architecture, and languages are just a part of it.
It covers all human endeavor; it is indeed a gigantic biographical encyclopedia. To the young, it is a learning tool, to the scholar, it is an essential reference. Surprisingly, there are so many people in this book. Every page you will open at random will show you a story that will warm your heart, lift your spirits, and inspire you to be all that you could be. And I believe that it is also eminently suitable as reading matter for any teen-age boy or girl; it will lead the young person to the right kind of road. Biographies and profiles of people who matter in 300 fields from the first 10 years of the 21st century. Their career highlights, accomplishments, life and times. An in-depth historical and social study enriched with quotes, and analogy of the work of the most prominent people of our time.
