About the Author:

Christopher Robbins was born in 1946. He has won a number of awards for his investigative journalism for the Observer on topics such as world-wide smuggling, the treatment of political prisoners in Franco's Spain and CIA involvement in political assassination, including attempts on Fidel Castro, which was developed into a book - "Assassin". He has travelled widely in Russia, investigating the activities of the KGB.

Review:

Chris Robbins has given us an irresitible phenomenon: obstinate, brilliant, morally incorruptible and one of thebravest men you will ever read about. John Le Carre The magnetic potency of Michel Thomas's teaching is partly explained by this book, as much a thriller as a biography... Emma Thompson This book will stir your soul. Reader review, Amazon.co.uk This has to be the one of the best examples that we are all put on this earth for a reason... I could hardly put it down and only relented when I had to do some real work... I have now decided that I too can learn a language as his philosophy on learning is one that I can relate to and hope that in time educational institutions will too.A truly inspirational read!! Reader review, Amazon.co.uk Michel Thomas' biography is a must-read for anyone interested in the triumph of humanity over the seemingly overwhelming forces of evil. Reader review, Amazon.co.uk Five stars is not enough for this gut wrenching biography... an awe inspiring read, which really puts one's own meek trials and tribulations into perspective. The final chapter has a quote: "Often the test of courage is not to die, but to live." This sums the book up. Reader review, Amazon.co.uk
