About the Author:

Christopher Robbins was born in 1946. He has won a number of awards for his investigative journalism for the Observer on topics such as world-wide smuggling, the treatment of political prisoners in Franco's Spain and CIA involvement in political assassination, including attempts on Fidel Castro, which was developed into a book - "Assassin". He has travelled widely in Russia, investigating the activities of the KGB.

Review:

Five stars is not enough for this gut wrenching biography... an awe inspiring read, which really puts one's own meek trials and tribulations into perspective. The final chapter has a quote: "Often the test of courage is not to die, but to live." This sums the book up. * Reader review, Amazon.co.uk * Michel Thomas' biography is a must-read for anyone interested in the triumph of humanity over the seemingly overwhelming forces of evil. * Reader review, Amazon.co.uk * This has to be the one of the best examples that we are all put on this earth for a reason... I could hardly put it down and only relented when I had to do some real work... I have now decided that I too can learn a language as his philosophy on learning is one that I can relate to and hope that in time educational institutions will too.A truly inspirational read!! * Reader review, Amazon.co.uk * This book will stir your soul. * Reader review, Amazon.co.uk * The magnetic potency of Michel Thomas's teaching is partly explained by this book, as much a thriller as a biography... * Emma Thompson * Chris Robbins has given us an irresitible phenomenon: obstinate, brilliant, morally incorruptible and one of thebravest men you will ever read about. * John Le Carre *
