Riassunto: Dragged off a train in central China by Communist soldiers, former U.S. naval intelligence officer John Potter, accused of espionage, fights for his freedom and possibly his life during a brutal interrogation by counter-intelligence agents. Physically and mentally exhausted, he stands for 15 hours under a barrage of accusations and demands in Chinese, prodded to his feet with rifle butts whenever he collapses. Such life-threatening situations are no strangers to Potter during his First Nine Lives. After graduating from Harvard in 1947, he charges through adventures in a dozen countries, culminating in Korea, where he organizes a brilliantly successful shipping and trading business employing 300 people and nearly crashes a plane carrying 40 passengers. Throughout these pages the reader is plunged into unexpected situations that Potter encounters some frightening, some outrageously funny, all gripping.
About the Author: Born 1924 in California, John Potter was raised in a respected family in Shanghai, China; educated there and in America at St. George's School, Harvard University and Business School, U. of Colorado Language School and Columbia Business School. After 3 1/2 years of duty in WWII, he was discharged as Lieutenant (j.g.) naval intelligence. From then on, his "lives" take off. My First Nine Lives describes Potter's business ventures and hair-raising experiences in seven Asian countries, starting in Shanghai in 1945. His ninth life ends when he leaves Korea to begin his Second Nine Lives in Europe -- much of it exploring under the Atlantic and Mediterranean.
