The absurdity and horror of three years as a hostage by Somali pirates is the theme of Michael Scott Moore’s new memoir as well as his thoughtful, gripping talks. He can discuss the cognitive skills needed to change to your approach toward any problem — real human freedom, as articulated by Stoics, Christians, and Buddhists.
An eye-opening experience for West Point cadets ... The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point is incredibly appreciative to Mr. Moore, who was a pleasure to host, for his willingness to share his important insights with the future leaders of the U.S. military.
Mike exudes the calm demeanor of a man who has been through so much; a man who was broken into pieces, and who found a beautiful, spiritual way to pick up those pieces and become whole again.
His riveting talk moved and inspired the entire audience with his message of forgiveness and the indomitable power of the human spirit.
Michael was extremely forthcoming, articulate, self-deprecating and unabashedly honest. He was a delight to work with, and I doubt that many in the audience will forget that evening — or Michael — for a long time to come.
His visit to the Sorbonne was one of the highlights of the semester. The students were inspired and moved by his honesty and courage, and his talk prompted many interesting discussions, both during his visit and throughout the course.
Hearing him talk was like listening to a short story unfold.
Michael is represented by the Lucinda Literary Speakers Bureau
