Andrei Gavrilov, according to critics, is among the world’s greatest concert pianists.  In 1974, he won first prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition and in the same year made a triumphant international dèbut at the Salzburg Festival. Since then he has enjoyed an impressive international career which included performances with the world's greatest orchestras. 

Gavrilov’s book captures the most meaningful episodes of his life. In it he shares his philosophical views on the major problems of the modern world that include but are not limited to totalitarianism, fundamentalism and the decay of our modern culture. It is a piercing view of the man behind the music. An added bonus are the anecdotes about other famous Russian and international celebrities, such as Malkovich, McCartney, Richter, Rostropovich and many others.

Мне 81 год. По образованию я - химик, работал в дюжине областей науки, включая микробиологию, теорию происхождения жизни на Земле, информатику, психологию. Я - автор 200 научных статей и книг и около 50 изобретений. Очень люблю животных, а также всё растущее, начиная от сорняков. Испытываю необычайную любовь к бонсаям, коллекционирую морские раковины, нецке, заварные чайники и другие красоты. Живу в Аризоне, куда переехал из России 26 лет назад. Женат, имею трёх сыновей. И дед мой, и отец работали журналистами. Видимо, по наследству меня потянуло на писательскую деятельность десять лет тому назад. "Кавказские рассказы" - мой третий сборник рассказов.

Платон Иоселиани был известен как исследователь гражданской и церковной истории Грузии и как биограф Георгия Саакадзе и последнего грузинского короля (царя) Георгия XII.

Он был великолепным знатоком истории Грузинской Церкви и тифлисских древностей. Сотрудничал с академиком Броссе. В 1838 году Императорская Академия Наук и Святейший Синод РПЦ поручили Иоселиани разбор древних исторических актов (гуджаров), собранных при Грузинском синодальном комитете (в 1811 году Грузинская Православная Церковь была лишена автокефалии и насильственно подчинена Петербургскому Святейшему Синоду).
