Simon Gelman was president of the Society of Academic Anesthesia Chairs, Morton Society, and Academy of Mentors in Anesthesiology; an editor of major anesthesiology journals; and an honorary member of the Israeli Society of Anesthesiologists and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists. He has completed his new book “What I Was Thinking…”: a thought-provoking book about the author’s purposeful moments in life and his maturation that inspired perspectives on politics, religion, science, and employment.

Author Gelman imparts wisdom on decisions that greatly impacted and brought profound outlook in his life: “The first chapter of the book is a memoir. However, it is written as a retrospective analysis of the thoughts Gelman had and actions he chose at different periods of his life. The following chapters address certain subjects like how to be a chairman of an academic medical department, relationships between doctors and patients, socialism and capitalism, and anti-Semitism.

These chapters describe Gelman’s views and how they changed over time, affected by his maturing and life in three different countries (Soviet Union, Israel, and United States) with very different social structures and cultures.

A few of Gelman’s friends who read the first drafts of this book were saying that these chapters that describe his changing views on the subjects can be helpful to understand many different, often not-well-justified actions in human lives. The book does not suggest what should be done in one or another circumstance. It rather tells the story of how and why the decisions (right or wrong) were made depending on the background and acquired knowledge.”

Published by Page Publishing, Simon Gelman’s opus shows how the author achieved success in life and gained noteworthy lessons on professionalism, culture, politics, and human relations.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “What I Was Thinking…” at bookstores everywhere or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
