NEW YORK, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- In her new nonfiction biography, "True North: A Flickering Soul in No Man's Land; Knut Utstein Kloster, Father of the $20-Billion-a-Year Modern Cruise Industry" (published by iUniverse), author Stephanie Gallagher finally reveals the astounding accomplishments and the revolutionary principles of entrepreneur, humanitarian and environmentalist Knut Utstein Kloster -- no-nonsense lessons that have changed business today.
Now readers can follow the inspiring career of Kloster and learn about the present implications of the modern cruise industry he himself built. Indeed, Kloster has always been an extraordinary man, one far ahead of his time, evidenced by his groundbreaking business strategies and his lifelong commitment to the global concerns of our generation. Creative capitalism, global poverty, world health, energy shortage, climate crisis, sustainable development and peace agendas may now appear in the news and get mentioned in board meetings, but Kloster has been actively involved and supportive of these initiatives since the early 1960s.
For example, in support of the earliest initiatives aimed at improving the environment and promoting the concepts of sustainable development, Kloster launched a Green Clean Global Village(C) Initiative in order to explore just a few ways of reversing the enormous damage caused by marine pollution while also offering safe and sound solutions to the global energy crisis, endeavoring to create a zero-emission, wholly energy efficient, environmentally benign vessel at sea and village ashore.
Endorsed by former President Finnbogadottir of Iceland (1980 to 1996), the first elected female president in the world, Stephan Schmidheiny, founder and honorary chairman of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, and Helen Delich Bentley, former chairman of the United States Federal Maritime Commission and former 5-term member of the U.S. House of Representatives, "True North" not only educates readers about socially responsible enterprises that value all stakeholders through the life of Kloster, but it also restores our connection with and faith in civilization.
