During his thirty-seven years working for a major corporation, Michael Kaufman grew to understand its inner workings and what it took to survive and thrive. More importantly, throughout his lifetime, he also learned how to overcome obstacles, mentor others to success, and rely on his moral compass to guide him on his journey.
In a fascinating retelling of his experiences that include original photographs, Kaufman chronicles his life from humble beginnings in post-Second World War Communist Hungary, his eventual escape with his concentration camp survivor parents during the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, his immigration to the United States, and his journey to understand a vastly different culture and the opportunities offered to him in a free society. As he leads others through his education as he obtained a JD and MBA, his marriage, and his difficult work assignments and volunteer experience, Kaufman also details the valuable lessons he learned while sharing insight into corporate America, his humorous adventures, and much more.
I Got to See the World, First-Class is the true story and learned life lessons of a retired corporate attorney and Hungarian immigrant.
