During my 'season', I often can schedule an hour to get out to clear my head. It gives me a chance to get resettled so I may do a great job.
Lucky for me, I saw the author talk on his book on the life of Andrei Sakharov. It didn't hurt that the author is my next door neighbor. Jay Bergman is a professor at Central Connecticut State University specializing in Russian history. He has worked long and hard and has accomplished a comprehensive account of Sakharov's life.
Born in 1921 in Moscow, Sakharov was a man so ahead of his time. Not only was he a world reknown physicist, he was also the moral conscience for the Soviet Union and its people.
Need a great read - then I suggest getting this book. Meeting the Demands of Reason: The Life and Thought of Andrei Sakharov will enlighten what was going on during this turbulent time in history.
And to my friend and professor, Jay great job!
