Seeing every challenge as an opportunity, Dr. Ichak Adizes reveals how he went from being a child imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp to one of the greatest business management thinkers of our time. Dr. Adizes’ personal story details a string of external events that propelled him through adversity after adversity, and led him to become the insightful, compassionate person he is. It is the story of a journey into his own heart, which—like the accordion he so passionately played to feed himself and gain an education—expanded and opened, to allow him to accept the universal truths that connect us all in our humanity. The Accordion Player is an account of a remarkable life—an unvarnished view of a man who was marginalized, but eventually overcame the trauma of his youth to find happiness, success, and love. His inspiring journey reminds us that hope is not lost.
