From the Author:

The virtues of a double life come to us at different stages in our lives. My own epiphany came thirty-two years ago. I had just finished reading Michael Crichton's THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN and was flabbergasted to discover that the author penned the novel while studying at Harvard Medical School. Knowing that medical students probably have less than twenty minutes discretionary time in a day, I wondered how this twenty-six-year-old could have cranked out not only a best-seller, but one that launched the medical-thriller genre. Crichton didn't stop there. Today he wears many hats: He is the author of twenty-two novels, a science and art critic, a film producer, and a computer games entrepreneur.

Over the years, I studied other Renaissance personalities, who--like Crichton--not only defied classification, but destroyed the myth that specialization was the only path to success and happiness. In the process of my research, I assumed my own double life: For three decades, I shuffled between positions in academia (Wharton, Columbia, and Hawai'i) and business (Citicorp, Jardine Matheson, and Campbell Estate). The constant in both lives was my writing, including books like this that question the old bromides.

DOUBLE LIVES offers a road map--a set of directions any of us can follow to shape a second or third identity. Read this book and you'll discover some simple truths that will make you happier and infinitely more interesting to yourself and others. And just wait--you may find leading several parallel lives a passport to living the life you want to lead.
