About the author:
Dr. Igor Radovic was born in former Yugoslavia and received his early education in France and Yugoslavia. He spent World War II under Nazi occupation, followed by several years under the Titoist communist regime in Yugoslavia, where he studied Law and Civil Engineering. He escaped from behind the Iron Curtain in 1951, and worked in Western Europe and South Africa before coming to the United States and completing doctoral studies in Industrial Engineering and Management at Columbia University in New York City.
In 1965, he joined the United Nations and served in various capacities relating in the main to economic development and cooperation and involving a variety of assignments and regions. During this period, he also taught at Columbia a graduate course on problems of industrialization in less developed countries. He retired from the U.N. as Director of the Department for Special Political Questions, Regional Co-operation, Decolonization and Trusteeship.
Dr. Radovic resides on the West Coast, and divides his time between the United States, Canada and, occasionally, Australia. A published author, and the author of the online Aphorist's Corner Weekly, he is working on a new manuscript.

Dyspeptic Definitions
 

Authored by Dr. Igor D. Radovic

"Dyspeptic Definitions" is a collection-in dictionary form-of its author's many own definitions for a broad range of topics of general interest. A display of barbed humor and caustic satire, and a stream of prickly observations and grouchy opinions, it is a book that lives up to its title and will appeal to those not too reluctant to see life and themselves in a different and often less than flattering light. Readers who liked Ambrose Bierce's "The Devil's Dictionary" will also enjoy reading "Dyspeptic Definitions".
