About the Author

Andre Maurois, or Emile Salomon Wilhelm Herzog, (July 26, 1885 - October 9, 1967) was a French author and a man of letters. "Andre Maurois" was a pen name that became his legal name in 1947. He was born in Elbeuf and educated in Rouen, both in Normandy. During World War I he joined the French army and he served as an interpreter and later a liaison officer in the British army. His first novel Les silences du colonel Bramble was a witty but socially realistic account of that experience. It was an immediate success in France. It was translated and also became popular in the United Kingdom and other English speaking countries as The Silence of Colonel Bramble. Many of his other works have been translated in English, because they often dealt with British figures or topics, like his biographies of Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, Lord Byron or Shelley. He became a member of the Academie francaise in 1938. During World War II he served in the French army and the Free French Forces. He died in 1967 after a long career as an author of novels, biographies, histories, and children's books. He is buried in the Neuilly-sur-Seine community cemetery near Paris. Dr. Sergio E. Serrano received his Ph.D. degree at the University of Waterloo (Canada). He is a full professor of engineering science and applied mathematics at a Research I university in the U. S. For the past thirty years, he has taught in several universities in the United States, Canada, Colombia, Spain, and China. He has over one hundred research publications in international science, engineering, and mathematics journals. He is also the author of nine books in environmental engineering, statistics, philosophy, and psychology. Dr. Serrano has been awarded four times with nationally-competitive research grants by the National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.

Reviews

INDEPENDENT REVIEWS by over one-hundred-and-thirty readers at www.goodreads.com/book/show/3325107-an-art-of-living"...Reading this book of essays on the phases of life (The Art of Thinking, of Loving, of Working, of Leading and of Growing Old, with a brief chapter on The Art of Dying and a concluding 'Letter to Young Men') is rather like having a frank discussion with a worldly-wise uncle seeking to impart his hard-won wisdom ... The book is beautifully illustrated, and Maurois accompanies his essays with abundant historical examples and carefully selected quotations from famous historical figures ... I highly recommend this book for it's insights and readability; it's like reading a twentieth century Montaigne." Mark Johnson. Goodreads. "What a beautiful insight on life and its various aspects!" Bhavya. Goodreads. "Great and amazing book! I read it many times and it provides great insight in Leadership and life in general. I recommend so much this book." Yasmin. Goodreads
