Author & Synopsis


The Author

George Pan Kouloukis is an attorney-at-law, a lawyer barrister. Of course, his book here has nothing to do with law; it is the result of a series of observations that everybody could have made after extensive research, provided he/she had experienced the specific events and situations the author has experienced, described in the book. The author is a Greek citizen, born and brought up in Greece, and he is living in Greece. His mother tongue is also Greek; English is his second language. Now retired, he was a member of the Athens Bar Association of Greece and he had provided legal services to the Ionian Bank of Greece, the Greek Electric Railways Company, and other corporations. He is married with two daughters and three grandchildren.

  A Synopsis of the Book

This book changes profoundly the way we all cope with our life today. Among other things, you’ll see that when you are in a good season of our life, you mustn’t behave as if you assume that this season will never end. On the contrary, you have to take in time the necessary measures to face successfully the problems that may occur in the bad season that will follow.

You must not be spendthrift, for example, but you have to save money for facing possible financial problems that will appear during the bad season. Also, you have to take care of your health, so that you can successfully face serious illnesses that may appear in your bad seasons. In short, you have to make provisions for the winter that will come, so that you can effectively diminish its chilliness.

You will also be amazed to learn from this book that if Napoleon the Great knew the theory explained in the book, he wouldn’t have attacked in 1815 the English and Germans at Waterloo where he suffered total destruction that lead him to death. Things may have so taken another course for him, and a new good season, a glorious one again, may have later started for Napoleon!

Also, you will be surprised – and really comforted – to learn from this book that you must not blame yourself – and have not any remorse – for the fact that a bad season came in your life. You will realize that you haven’t made any mistake to cause the arrival of this season, and you couldn’t have done anything for avoiding this; the bad season would have inevitably arrived in any case.

You will also notice – among the lots of other advantages this book offers – that you can entrust an employee or colleague with the solution of a difficult problem – or a politician to govern your country, or even a coach of a basketball team – only if you know they are in a good season of their life, operating so from a position of strength.

Also, you will find of special interest that the discovery cited in this book can help you to foresee the life evolution of the other people – of your friends and relatives, of famous people (artists, singers, actors, and the likes), or even of the politicians that govern you. You can predict, for example, how long a political leader will stay in power after his election, or for how long a famous singer will continue his successful career. All depends on the season – good or bad – these persons are at a given moment, as I explain in detail in the book.

The discovery revealed in this book will radically change in the future the mentality and character of all people. People will become more philosophized, realists, and peaceful – they will know that a good season doesn’t last forever, on the contrary a bad season awaits; it hasn’t any meaning, therefore, being quarrelsome and aggressive. On the contrary, the Man will become tolerant and merciful, and have more understanding towards the others. Superficiality and imprudence, even if they don’t disappear completely, will drastically be reduced.

Also, the theory explained in this book is a fresh piece of knowledge, as you will see – and I could say that a kind of new science can be born from it. In the light of the book’s findings, therefore, new studies by other persons (scientists or scholars) are absolutely necessary in the future, so that they can enable all of us to take more advantages of the discovery described in the book.

There are also a lot of other benefits deriving from the discovery – and most of them are indeed astonishing, as you’ll see in detail in the book.


An Editorial Review

This book by George Kouloukis is a fascinating book. It is loaded with lessons we need to make life changing decisions, to face adversity, and to discern our path in life. The author brings together lessons from twenty-two famous people, from Beethoven, Verdi, The Dalai Lama, to Napoleon, Jimmy Carter, Nelson Mandela, and many others. The author looks into the lives of these people with diverse and unique skills, and draws powerful lessons to help readers transform their lives and give it a healthy perspective.

In this book, readers will understand that some of their heroes, if not all of them, experienced rough weather; they encountered the darkness of despair, but what made them famous? That is what this book is all about. It is an unconventional way to consider the question of what it takes to succeed or to achieve something of great worth. Instead of dishing out pieces of advice to readers and telling them what to do, the author allows the lives of great teachers, spiritual leaders, politicians, and intellectuals throughout the ages to speak to them.

The book is an insightful, beautifully written book. The prose is beautiful and the book is well researched. It is both entertaining and inspiring.
