Don’t You Know Who I Am? – The History of Arrogance

by Ari Turunen

This is probably the best book which you will ever read…

Yes, we humans have always had too big thoughts about ourselves!

Ari Turunen leads in his new book to the source of arrogance. What else is the reason for the biggest catastrophes from climate change to economical crises as the endless self-satisfaction of the leaders.

In the 1930s in Soviet Union it was planned that the currents of rivers in Siberia should be turned into the reverse direction.

The CEO of Enron believed that the greed was the best means for motivation.

Or what can we learn about the modesty of the Philip II, king of Spain? He died in the front of the fire place since court staff could not find the officer whose task was to move king’s armchair.

Don’t You Know Who I Am? is worth of browsing when the hybris comes to your head. In the book’s last chapter the success stories are revealed.

The basis of the many success stories in life was created by the opposite of the hybris: with self-criticism and self-irony.

Ari Turunen has a way with words. Fluently articulated and a funny micro history of a rather unpleasant characteristic of the Homo Sapiens.
