Summary

Pablo Escobar
 
Murderer, philanthropist, drug dealer, politician, devil, saint: many words have been used to describe Pablo Escobar, but one is irrefutable - legend. For the poor of Colombia, he was their Robin Hood, a man whose greatness lay not in his crimes, but in his charity; for the Colombian rich he was just a bloodthirsty gangster, a Bogie Man used to scare children in their beds; for the rest of the world flush with his imported cocaine, he was public enemy number one. When talking about Colombia, there is usually one thing that instantly comes to mind –cocaine. While this stereotype is not completely true, it is difficult not to associate the country with drugs. Naturally, the name Pablo Escobar will come up when reading about the emergence of the drug industry in the country. Escobar and his Medellin cartel once led the drug trade in Colombia, trafficking around 80% of the world’s cocaine supply. During his period of influence, Escobar amassed an estimated net worth of $25 billion.

    The LIBOR affair has been described as the ‘biggest
    banking scandal in history’, a deception affecting not only banks but also
    corporations, pension funds and ordinary people. 
    
    
     
    But was this just the tip of the iceberg?
    Was the scandal the work of a few ‘bad apples’ or an inevitable result of a
    financial system rotten to its core? Labelled ‘one of the world's most infamous
    rogue traders’ in the wake of a mis-marking scandal, Alexis Stenfors went on to
    rebuild his life and now guides us through the shadowy world of modern banking,
    providing an insider’s account of the secret practices – including the manipulation
    of foreign exchange rates – which have allowed banks to profit from systematic
    deception. Containing remarkable and often shocking insights derived from his
    own experiences in the dealing room, as well as his spectacular fall from grace
    at Merrill Lynch, Barometer of Fear draws back the curtain to
    a realm that for too long has remained hidden from public view.

    The Story of My Experiments with Truth, the autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi, is a very popular and influential book. It covers the period from his birth (1869) to the year 1921, describing his childhood, his school days, his early marriage, his journeys abroad, his legal studies and practise.
    The book is more about the experiments of Gandhi with truth and his Satyagraha movement, which literally means demanding the truth and nothing else. This is the very idea that helped him to fight against racism, violence and colonialism. All of this eventually helped him to achieve his dream of an independent India.
    Gandhi mentions his numerous experiments, starting from his elocution training to putting an end to his fear and shyness towards public speaking. His instances of attending singing classes and shaking a leg on the dance floor are well-described. He was a staunch vegetarian, fasted regularly and walked 10 miles daily. He studied comparative religion greatly and was a devote Hindu, but showed great respect for all religions. Gandhi didn't shy away from accepting his own mistakes and displayed commendable patience and fortitude in his personal life. 
    About the Author:
    Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, was the prominent figure in the freedom struggle in India from the British rule. He is also known as the 'The Father of the Nation', in India.
    The author has written a number of books and some of them include Character & Nation Building, India of My Dreams, and All Men are Brothers.
    The author was born on the 2nd of October, 1869, in Porbandar, Gujarat. In the year 1942, he played a key role in launching the Quit India movement, which was intended at forcing the British to leave the nation. As a result of launching this movement, he was thrown in prison and remained there for several years, due to other political offenses allegedly committed by him. At all times, he practised satyagraha, which is the teaching of non-violence. As the British rule ended, he was saddened by India's partition, and tried his best to bring peace among the Sikhs and Muslims. On the 30th of January, 1948, Mahatma Gandhi was shot dead by a Hindu nationalist, for allegedly being highly concerned about the nation's Muslim population.
