Swimming Across

A Memoir
By Andrew S. Grove (Electronic Book, 2008)
Swimming Across is a personal and cultural memoir tracing Andrew Grove's most formative years. Beginning on the eve of Nazi Germany's invasion of his native Hungary and ending with his flight from communism to America 16 years later, it combines a child's sense of wonder with an engineer's passion for order and detail. Grove's uplifting autobiography depicts his family's struggle to survive in the face of a host of staggering obstacles. Nearly killed by scarlet fever at the age of four, forced into hiding by the Nazis in 1944, and dogged by anti-semitism, Andrew Grove's survival was nothing short of miraculous. These and other incredible trials combine to give a stirring picture of a childhood that would lead to a lifetime of unsurpassed achievement. In "Swimming Across", a true American hero reveals his origins and what it takes to survive...and to triumph.
