About Gordon Zuckerman
Through Voices Behind the Curtain, businessman Gordon Zuckerman presents a well-researched historical fiction business thriller that is extremely relevant to today’s political climate. He discusses how private industry and the financial community can influence governmental policies and fictionalizes what we would have done to navigate these waters in the past. The situation created in this novel is very similar to the hurdles President Trump is currently up against in order to make the changes he wants. More about Gordon can be found at his website, on Facebook @AuthorGordonZuckerman, and on Twitter @ZuckermanGordon.
