Synopsis
With InstaRead Chapter-by-Chapter Summaries, you can get the essence of a book in 30 minutes or less. We read every chapter and summarize it in one or two paragraphs so you can get the information contained in the book at a faster rate. This is an InstaRead Summary of Things That Matter by Charles Krauthammer. Below is a preview of the earlier sections of the summary: A WORD ON ORGANIZATION AND METHOD This book includes original articles from newspapers and magazines, as well as five essays on several subjects. PART ONE: PERSONAL CHAPTER 1: THE GOOD AND THE GREAT Marcel, My Brother Krauthammer’s older brother Marcel, also a doctor, was once brought to the Emergency Room in critical conditions, and yet was able to tell the clueless intern what to do to save his life. He was brilliant and brave. Growing up, Marcel taught Krauthammer many sports and shared his friends with him. They spent long and idyllic summers in Long Beach and were inseparable. Marcel died of cancer at the age of 59. (The Washington Post, January 27, 2006) Winston Churchill: The Indispensable Man Winston Churchill, rather than Einstein, should have been Time Magazine’s Person of the Century. Einstein was a genius with revolutionary ideas, but without him the world would have reached these findings sooner or later. Churchill, on the other hand, was indispensable. Without him the world would not be what it is today. Britain might have sided with the Nazis, and civilization would have rapidly declined. Churchill saved Western civilization from Nazism and Soviet communism. He favored some currently unpopular views, such as colonialism, but he was a man of his time. It took a 19th Century man to pave the way towards the 20th Century. (The Washington Post, December 31, 1999) Paul Erdos: Sweet Genius Erdos, a brilliant mathematician, kept working up until his death at the age of 83. A homeless nomad, he sought the hospitality of mathematicians around the world offering his brain in return. He was a Hungarian Jew, whose family was destroyed by Hitler. He was a gentle, generous and a gregarious genius. Once Erdos lent a poor student $1,000 to go to Harvard. When the student, now an accomplished professor, offered to pay him back, Erdos told him to give those $1,000 to another student in need. (The Washington Post, September 27, 1996)
