About this title

Synopsis:

Mae West, Johnny Carson, Taylor Caldwell, Elvis Presley, Carl Sandburg, Eleanor Roosevelt, Grace Kelly, Joseph P. Kennedy and Clark Gable are just a few of the people Jess Stearn crossed paths with in his storied career as a journalist and author. He met with the famous and the infamous, the proud and the humble, the glamorous and the plain. With every meeting, Stearn learned something about the world, about human nature -- and about himself. He learned about humility from the policeman who risked his life in turbulent waters to save a boy's dog. He learned about loyalty from Phil Donahue, who, on achieving superstardom, remembered those who stuck by him in the lean years. He learned about integrity from baseball great Sandy Koufax, who refused to blame other players for costly World Series errors that marred the end of his brilliant career.These snapshots from a reporter's notebook offer a compelling look at American history in the 20th century. Stearn's personal reflections on events such as the Lindbergh kidnapping, the rise of rock 'n' roll music, and the Kennedy assassinations bring to life the prominent characters who molded our times.

About the Author:

Jess Stearn is a prizewinning journalist formerly with Newsweek and the New York Daily News. He is the author of over 30 books, several of which were bestsellers, including: Yoga, Youth and Reincarnation; Door to the Future; The Sixth Man; I Judas; The Power of Alpha Thinking; The Search for the Girl with Blue Eyes; The Search for the Soul: Psychic Lives of Taylor Caldwell; Prophet in His Own Country; Soulmates; Elvis' Search for God; and the #1 New York Times bestseller, Edgar Cayce: The Sleeping Prophet.

He began writing books after years of investigative reporting. His books have been translated into fifteen languages. Stearn's books have changed the lives of thousands of people, and his book "Edgar Cayce on the Millenium" reflects the transition of mankind into the New Millenium. Jess Stearn started writing about the little know subject of psychic phenomena after he had a personal experience. This brought about several best selling books "Edgar Cayce - The Sleeping Prophet" published in the U.S. Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Japan and South America. His Door to the Future, which preceded the Edgar Cayce book, carried the Jean Dixon prediction about the assassination of John Kennedy months before it occurred.
