Lessons in Survival: All About Amos is the life story of Amos who was born in Haifa, Israel, raised in post World War II Germany under difficult financial circumstances and with parents who suffered the effects of having been in concentration camps. He managed to succeed against all odds, despite having been the only Jewish boy in his school classes amongst seven hundred students. He eventually moved to New York City where he became a board certified doctor, a professor at a major medical institution, an international lecturer, a published author of numerous peer reviewed journals and a few popular books, a holder of several patents, and the creator and operator of major medical websites. He overcame the challenges of traumatized parents, poverty, his own ill health, divorces, the loss of family to the Holocaust and the loss of many friends to suicide.
Amos’s life story is inspirational for anyone who has major life challenges, which includes a wide audience as evidenced by Oprah’s popularity. Amos is a unique and fascinating personality. It explains how he dealt with his family’s dark and tragic history, and how his strong spirit, and the lessons learned from his parents, allowed him to survive, thrive, and to never succumb to bitterness.
