Claudio A. Stemberger is a writer, lecturer, and teacher who was born in 1928 in Fiume, Italy (now Rijeka, Croatia), endured the traumatic events of mid-twentieth century Europe before immigrating to the United States under the auspices of the Marshall Plan, and eventually became founder and CEO of a prosperous engineering company. Mr. Stemberger is now happily retired in Carlsbad, California, and continues to explore the world and its citizens through travel, lively discussion, and enjoying his extensive library. He has completed his new book “The World as I See It: Looking beneath the Veil and Myth of Society”: a stimulating collection of observation and thought from a former refugee who ultimately reached the pinnacle of the American Dream.

In this small volume, Mr. Stemberger offers his unique ideas and observations from a most unusual life. His ninety years of experiences found him living in two continents, under various governments, through war and peaceful times, and at many different levels of existence…from a penniless Italian refugee to a successful American CEO.

The entries are brief, deeply thoughtful, often eloquent, or even humorous in their simplicity. He has great economy of words, distilling the thought into the most concise of statements, a pithiness that invites (challenges, begs) the reader to take the kernel of thought and consider (examine, ponder) it for himself.

The writing style here is that of a collection of quotations. As such, each is intended not to preach or instruct but to awaken a concept, spark a new approach, encourage a deeper perception.

Published by Page Publishing, Claudio A. Stemberger’s engrossing work is an excellent choice for avid thinkers, philosophers, and aspiring citizens of the world.

“I have no pedigree as a writer or philosopher although, with this small book, I attempt to be a little of both. I offer you, the reader, my thoughts, not out of hubris, but from a desire to share what I have gleaned through my ninety years of a rather extraordinary life experience.

Throughout my lifetime, I have had a great interest in human nature, society, politics, and the natural world—all the things that affect our society and interactions with our fellow human beings. The variety of experiences I encountered gave me ample material to observe, ponder, and form ideas.

These bits of “wisdom” I’ve formed for myself are presented here. Some you will agree with, some you will not. Some you will, hopefully, just consider thoughtfully. I share them with you not as declarations but more as points to ponder. I hope you will read them with an open and critical mind, finding what is of value to you and mentally debating the ideas that you may disagree with.”            

-Claudio Stemberger
