About the Author

Jonathan Gravenor is a journalist, broadcaster, author, and speaker. During his career, he has covered wars to World Cups, natural disasters to national elections. But his favorite stories were always the human condition. Born and raised on the west coast of Canada he now calls Sydney Australia home. He lives with his partner Marina and Harry the Cat, who sat with him every day when he came home from chemotherapy. The Other Side of Ego is his first book but he has several other titles already underway.

Reviews

Kul Mahay - Motivational Speaker and Coach, United Kingdom

Firstly, I just have to say that I was initially deeply honored when you asked me to review your book.

However, my ego kicked in pretty quickly when I told myself it was likely to take several hours out of 'my busy life'. I justified this excuse by supporting it with the knowledge that my daughter's wedding was coming up, that I had a business that I was growing and that I had so many important meetings I needed to hold.

Even this morning, when you sent me a message asking if I had made any progress, I was telling myself that I hadn't really got the time and I felt inconvenienced. Such is the ego. Always thinking from a singular standpoint and with limited perspective.

However, thankfully my inner voice also stepped and said, 'I owe Jonathan this much at least. Perhaps I can read a couple of chapters and give him some feedback at least."

Here I am some 6 hours later, having sat in my office, transfixed by this masterpiece. Your book, your story has such a raw beauty to it that I simply could not put it down! The emotions, the internal conflict, and the growth through the realization of the simple truth took me along on the journey with you. It had me reflecting on my own life and my constant search for the truth. My own battles with my well-disguised arrogance and selfishness.

I reflected upon so many occasions where I too have looked outwardly for the answers by immersing myself in the teachings of others, such as Tony Robbins, and become disaffected or angered when I don't find the ultimate 'solution'. I now realize that all of these are just small parts of the whole.

This book will transform lives more than you even realize. It has certainly provoked thoughts and feelings in me today that I did not expect. I have chuckled, I have smiled and I have shed a tear or two whilst reading this masterpiece.

Robert Gordon - Journalist - Halifax NS Canada

"The Other Side of Ego explores a mans attempt to confront not only his mortality but also the kind of lies we tell ourselves about what is really precious in life. This television journalist seemed to have everything, until that everything included cancer. Jonathan writes about his intimate journey with a deadly disease. But he also tells a bigger story about how the disease launched him on a pilgrimage to become a better man. He uses his remarkable gifts, as a raconteur to show how some of the answers about how to survive his cancer were revealed in his quest for redemption."
