In the conclusion of Chasing Rainbows and Beyond, author Robert Berman shares with the reader his "Final Four" Humanitarian Rainbows. These are very personal and ambitious projects that have yet to reach fruition; however the "embers still glow" and each remains possible. The Final Four Rainbows of Hope are: * The Hope Scholarship a uniquely funded state scholarship that provides money to assist eligible high school graduates (3.0-B-GPA), with educational costs of attending a Hope-eligible college. Currently active in Georgia, Berman wants to see this concept expanded nationwide. * Hope For Starving Children Making sure no child goes to bed hungry, whether it be in the United States or on an international global scale as well. * Hope For Tolerance Development of a "Center and Museum of Tolerance" to be housed at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). * Hope for A Cure for ALS (Lou Gehrig s Disease), which one of Berman s family contracted in 2009. This is by far the most important to him, promising to devote the rest of his life supporting all efforts to finding a cure. Berman passionately illustrates an intelligent, feasible game plan for each, providing the blueprint to making these hopeful humanitarian projects become a much-needed reality.

A University of Mississippi and Harvard educated author, Robert Lewis Berman was born in Atlanta in 1931. At a young age, his family moved to Lexington, Mississippi until WW II, when his father was stationed in Atlanta and later went overseas. Returning to Lexington, Bob remained there until departing for the University of Mississippi, where he was one of six students selected to the Hall of Fame. He was a First Lt. in the 10th Infantry Division. Honorably discharged, he received his MBA from the Harvard Business School. Married for more than 50 years to Sondra Ann Shindell of New Haven, CT, they have 3 married daughters, and 7 grandchildren. A civic and religious leader, he owned a sales and marketing and a real estate development firm. His first book was More Than Survival (1988). A House of David in the Land of Jesus is his second non-fiction book, about a special Jewish community in Mississippi, a compelling history of what was once a relatively large Jewish community, located in one of the least expected places Lexington, Mississippi, a small rural town in the heart of the Bible belt. The motivational memoir Chasing Rainbows and Beyond is his third book.Review:
"The world we live in today is very different than the one we grew up in. Society is becoming more 'walled off,' more secluded. That makes books like this, from men like Bob, a true gift. People who devote some or all of their lives to helping others seem to be more and more scarce. If we do not act now, someone reading this book will be affected by ALS before they do something about it. Act now and help change the world. A cure for ALS will most likely be a cure for Alzheimer s and many others associated with the human brain." --Curt Schilling, Former American Major League Baseball pitcher
"I am in favor of this and any other possibility to eradicate ALS. Your proposed Billion Dollar Plan appears to be a big step in the right direction." --Archie Manning, Ole Miss Quarterback, College Football Hall of Fame
"With this proposal, Bob Berman declares war on ALS. His plan is ambitious and thoughtful, not to mention unprecedented. He calls on the ALS Association to turn his strategy into reality a great choice." --Valerie Estess, Director of Research, Project A.L.S.
