He has an honors degree in biochemistry and neurophysiology from Durham University in England.
His perspectives have been honed in business practice where ideas live or die according to their efficacy in getting people to act in ways that enable leaders to achieve their goals.

The book introduces eight insights that are original and not found in other books dealing with science and human understanding.
He lives near Toronto, Canada with his wife. They have two daughters.
