Ponseti and Paul - Paul G. Etre


Price: $19.97

Conversations with the legendary Dr. Ignacio Ponseti revealing a unique insight into the masterminds of the Second World War.
PONSETI AND PAUL contains a collage of amazing true stories and events that portray the best and the worst of the human spirit. It starts with Dr. Ignacio Ponseti, who fled Spain following the Spanish Civil War and ended up at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, where he spent over sixty years pursuing a safe and successful method to treat the deformity of clubfeet in babies. 5.25 x 8.25, 479 pages.

As a teenager living in his native Lebanon, Paul Etre developed a profound love for America and for all the values and ideals America stood for. Through incredible coincidences, Paul secured a full academic scholarship at St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minnesota. After his high school graduation, Paul took off to America. Paul's incredible life journey is a bold testimonial that faith and hope continue to thrive in America.

A magnificent relationship commenced when Dr. Ponseti and Paul's career paths intersected in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Iowa in 1986, when Paul became the administrator of the department. Dr. Ponseti and Paul became the closest of friends, and in the next 23 years, they spent countless hours in conversations about the Second World War, including Hitler's rise to power and the dynamics of the European political scene. Dr. Ponseti inspired Paul to study every aspect of the Second World War until Paul became an expert on Winston Churchill, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

PONSETI AND PAUL is rich with witty and entertaining stories about Paul and Dr. Ponseti's experiences, and their frank discussions about faith, religion, love, politics, pets, food, war and music. It provides new insights into the plight of the Jews and their hellish ordeal in Nazi Germany. It exposes, in stark contrast, the goodness of man, personified in Ignacio Ponseti, and the demonic evil of man, personified in Adolf Hitler.
