Recommended Book “My Life: From Riches To Rags and (Almost) Back! – A Memoire” By S. Ichtiaque Rasool

I have had the pleasure to meet and work with S. Ichtiaque Rasool as part of the work with the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme.  He is an outstanding , internationally well-respected colleague and climate scientist.  His professional writings are broad and seminal contributions, and involve other planets as well as Earth (e.g. see).

I was privileged to published with Ichtiaque in the papers

Chase, T.N., K. Wolter, R.A. Pielke Sr., and Ichtiaque Rasool, 2006: Was the 2003 European summer heat wave unusual in a global context? Geophys. Res. Lett., 33, L23709, doi:10.1029/2006GL027470

Chase, T.N., K. Wolter, R.A. Pielke Sr., and Ichtiaque Rasool, 2008: Reply to comment by W.M. Connolley on ‘‘Was the 2003 European summer heat wave unusual in a global context?’’Geophys. Res. Lett., 35, L02704, doi:10.1029/2007GL031574.

He recently has published an autobiography

 My Life: From Riches To Rags and (Almost) Back! – A Memoire”

which I highly recommend. It is a story, worthy of a novel!  He has lived in India, Pakistan,  France and the United States, and has spent time in a wide range of other countries. His life is a motivation to all of us, including young students as they chose their career path.  Ichtiaque’s honest and candid presentation of both his positive and negative experiences with buerauracy are invaluable.  

I highly recommend reading this book.
