Synopsis:

JFK's Secret Doctor tells a thrilling story of adventure and a historic medical career. Set against the grand panorama of twentieth century world events, it captures the remarkable life and spirit of climber and medical visionary Hans Kraus (1905 1996). Kraus was taught English by writer James Joyce, escaped Nazi-dominated Europe, and was JFK’s secret back specialist. A legendary rock climber, known for hair-raising ascents on two continents, Kraus lived a life full of triumph, tragedy, intensity, verve, and a whole lot of guts, glory, and wit. Few realized that the same man, considered one of the great unsung medical pioneers of the twentieth century, was also making headline news throughout the second half of the 1950s, was a guest of honor at Eisenhower’s White House, and the cover story of major magazines throughout America, including Sports Illustrated. His pioneering work in muscles and fitness uncovered shocking truths about the health of American children, and his work curing back pain brought him into the Kennedy White House and inner circle of Camelot.

Here is the life of Hans Kraus, including the previously untold story of Kennedy’s debilitating back problems, including Kennedy’s White House medical records and first-time interviews with two Kennedy White House doctors.

About the Author: Susan E. B. Schwartz is a freelance writer and contributes regularly to national adventure and sports magazines, including Outside, Climbing, Rock and Ice, and Runner’s World. An American Alpine Club Literary Committee member and former board member, Schwartz is a rock climber, scuba instructor, shipwreck divemaster, and marathoner. Schwartz lives in Wilton, Connecticut.

Yvon Chouinard, a noted climber and environmentalist, is the founder and owner of Patagonia, Inc., which Fortune has called “the coolest company on the planet.” He is also the cofounder with Craig Mathews of 1% for the Planet and the author of Let My People Go Surfing.
