About Zeno Singer

Although he studied architecture, he ended up spending his lifetime as a professional pilot, flying around the world and even leading his own airline company, Zeno Singer was from his youth, fascinated by historical events. He had read and collected a number of books, giving him enough information. As a skeptic by nature, each historical event and story he wanted to see and understand with a good dose of common sense, unencumbered by the "official" interpretation. He did not write the historical "storiettes" in this book as a scientific work or as a scientist, but as a Storyteller. And in that skin he is comfortable. Trying to convey to readers in a light and humorous form the knowledge he has gleaned over the years.show more
