The Other Side of History
- About the Author
Wherever we are in the world, we are always surrounded by news, whether it is an immediate report, or a later, more insightful analysis. Some of these events become history.
History is scattered with many significant changes; some planned, most sudden; some shocking, others happy. We see the front view of the occasion, the announcement, the TV footage, the moment. We see the stage that is put before us. But what about its behind-the-scenes? What led up to the moment? What tales are there from the people on the ground? What insights can we find on the other side of history?
Simon Maier narrates key events in the 20th and 21st century, through the perspective of a character who has lived through it all. It is a fascinating mix of fact and fiction; of what did happen and what might have happened. More than anything, the book surprises, teaches and opens the reader's eyes to some of the biggest and most important occasions of modern times.
Simon Maier is a communications expert and has worked with corporations around the world. He uses storytelling as a consultancy tool to help senior executives and staff to change their mindsets. He has maintained a lifelong interest in history and is fascinated by what goes on behind the world's big news stories.
