THE BOOK "THE CRAZY STORY"
(2017)

Book description
For many years, I’ve been nursing the idea of writing an autobiographic book: after all, my life has been difficult, instructive for thinking people, and full of different events! I lacked time to stop and sum everything up and sort everything out, but I’ve never given up on it! And now the time has finally come, and I’m glad that my dream has come true!

Selected Quotes

Memories of the best things in your life should not be destroyed by reality! Reader, they should live in your mind in parallel and warm your soul in the most difficult moments!
Reader, only those people are lucky in their life who are worthy of it: those who work hard and have at least minimal ability…
Work, love, bring up your children, and God will determine Himself what happens next, He knows why and what for, no one else knows that!!! Such things happen in life! Reader, do not make any predictions for your life. This is my important advice to you. God works in mysterious ways. It’s true.
That’s why, dear reader, no matter how hard the times are, pay attention to your children, especially when they are 13-18 years old, do not leave them out of sight for a second. There are loads of temptations everywhere, and almost all of them may lead to the loss of your loved one—your own child!
Dreams often come true, but expectations don’t, and never expect from your children the same things you have given to them!!! In most cases, children will never appreciate what you have done for them and will never understand you!
And remember, dear reader! If you need to solve some important problems— turn to those people who can solve them and help you do it, no matter their rank or position…
Once, one friend of mine, who had established himself as a businessman, told me that it’s only difficult to earn your first million; after that, dozens of them rain down on you! And I can only confirm this! And this is the second most valuable advice I want to give you, dear reader! Would you like to start a business? Thoroughly study the matter. Read business publications and use your computer frequently. Your first million is hidden there!
Remember, dear reader, bear it in mind and remind yourself every day: you can’t rest on the laurels of what you have achieved. Only growing constantly and perfecting one’s skills one can stay successful; otherwise, competition will catch up with you very quickly and destroy everything you’ve created!
So good luck to you, dear reader, in your good deeds, and remember: no matter how much you pray, if you don’t supplement your prayer with helping your neighbour, it will never be heard by God! If you do good, not to a relative, but to a stranger, you will be saved forever! All your sins will be forgiven because the good will save the world. We were born and came to this sinful Earth to do good! There is and there will be nothing more important in life than this!

Tamila

Hello, dear Leonid! I’ve read your book with great interest. You know, you have managed to write a book that everyone will read, because you put all your pure soul and that burden of experience into your book that could break many, but not you, it did not break you, and you moved through work, purity, and the desire to be useful to others. Indeed, you truly had to go through many thorns, but God gave you beautiful parents, about whom you wrote so warmly, and the family hearth also supported you. And all of this is the environment where all the stages of your life passed, and no matter where or in which country or state, as you are a spatial person, and your homeland is the whole world and our entire planet called Earth. Being like a door-soul, you wisely, passionately, and purposefully moved through life, and BRAVO that you have partially fulfilled all your karmic tasks, and very soon you will know yourself and get the answer to the question you asked yourself before writing this book. P. S. Your book can be used as a guide. After reading your book, many will want to be like you, as the words that have come down from your mouth and were written by your hands, which look like the confession of your kind generous and tired soul, would reach the hearts of people and know the truth. To live life, it is not enough to be only intelligent or educated, rich or poor, but it is imperative for the person to know him-/herself first, his/her light and darkness and, by giving everyone his/her light, he/she can enjoy, just like, my friend, you are doing it right now. Your way is not the best, it is just different! It is too charming!

How beautiful you wrote, Tamila! Thank you so much!

Alexander

Dear Leonid Mikhailovich, I’ve just read your new book and really enjoyed it. The third part of the book where you talk about charity and your own charity work was the most exciting for me. Thank you for such an interesting book.

You have a bright future if you appreciated my ideas! Good luck!

Lara

I read the book in that proverbial one sitting... So that’s who you are, Mr. Chernovetskyi… Although in the book he suggests trusting no one, I believe he is a good, and indubitably smart at that.

Thanks, Lara!

Babi

Having read your book, I regained the hope for a better future; before that, I almost decided to give up on everything, it is very hard to get up after a betrayal, it is very difficult to fight... I am glad that there are such strong people in the world as you, and I wish you all the best!

Dear Babi, thank you very much for such warm words. I am very glad that my book helped you take a new look at your life! You should never give up. Life is not an easy thing, but it is unique and unrepeatable! There are always things for which you have to get up after the fall and go ahead!

Tatia

Mr. Leonid! I read your book in one breath. I can honestly tell you that you are also a success in literature, a sublime field as it is... The book telling a story of how a person can go through a very difficult childhood and adolescence indicates how to overcome temptations and trials, how to look at the tortures of a loved one, as well as how to emerge as a more stable and mentally rich person after every tough call... Please believe me, it’s a path for the chosen few... In this very book, you touched on the themes that define human life... the order, in which you mounted the stairs of life is very important... in fact, you did it step by step, without skipping. You sure have turned a divine spark into the fire... your amazing definition of leadership as not leaving someone behind you, but being independent... It is also interesting when you say that there is no complete independence, and the higher the career growth is, the greater is the limitation... Do you know why this happens? In my opinion, the more a person develops, the more he/she learns him-/herself and opens up new facets of his/her abilities... and these discoveries assume an even greater responsibility and impose even more restrictions... However, it does not come from outside and is not imposed. No, this is one’s conscious choice... this is exactly what freedom is... accordingly, this is not a restriction on freedom, but, on the contrary, the acquisition of freedom! I cannot help but mention those people whom you so lovingly mention in your book about Larisa Mikhailovna and Edik... the colourful days of your childhood are associated with them... In addition, your definition of a woman as a phenomenon, softness combined with strength is remarkable — it is indeed so... And, in the end, I will briefly touch on your writing style — you write for ordinary people in a form they understand, with humour and self-irony... I do believe that this book will be extremely interesting and useful for readers... you are a benefactor in life and remained so in literature... Thank you very much!

Thank you, Tatia! You are a profound person drawing the right conclusions. I do hope that you are also successful in your life! Sincerely, good luck!

Nana

I’ve read your book and visited your web-site, and I cannot help but express my admiration. You are a great man, heavensent for Georgia. I would love to meet you.

Thank you, Nana! Smart and beautiful women are a great rarity for Georgia! Unfortunately, they do their best to leave the country. You must be an exception! Good luck! I’m sure we will meet one day.

Svetlana

Good evening, Leonid Mikhailovich! Thanks for linking to the e-book, I’ve read it in one sitting… It is written not with the heart but with the soul, that much is certain… At first, it struck me that such books are published only after the author has passed away to a better world… Thank you for your frankness, it was an educational experience for me... However, I am still confused since I can’t come to understand how exactly this system can ever change? Thanks for your revelations and sharing your life experiences with that purity and tact of yours!!! In general, as a person who previously sympathized with you, I am glad that my intuition about your decency did not betray me!!! I wish you new inspirations and, of course, blessings to you and your family!

Thanks, Svetlana! This is what I would like to present to the reader!

Irma

Good afternoon! First of all, I would like to thank you for this book. The power of God is very great and it helped you... Reading books all the time might indeed have saved you... I am very impressed and today I love that guy from the street, who years later argued with the strictest of professors. Even my go-to book—Vitamins for the Mind by Jim Rohn seems worthless to me after your story. At first glance, it is quite simple, but in fact, it is very profound in its principle and it will definitely become my table-book! I will achieve everything, and then we will definitely see each other!

Dear Irma! I was very pleased with your warm review of my book! I did put my whole soul into it! Thank you very much for your warm and sincere words! Follow your dream, and I am sure you will definitely succeed with such strength of mind and such a perception of the world! I wish you all the best in your life! May the God bless you and your family!

Press about the book

The Crazy Story in quotes: “If you are poor, it means it was given to you by God”

The ex-mayor of Kyiv opens up in his book about how he achieved success in business and assures that he’s never cooperated with the authorities or criminals.

Leonid Chernovetsky: it’s only difficult to earn your first million

The former investigator of the Prosecutor’s Office Chernovetsky had already established himself as a big businessman before becoming the mayor of Kyiv. Besides, the sale of his Pravex-bank to Italian group Intesa Sanpaolo for $750 million became one of the most successful deals in the Ukrainian financial sector in the mid-2000s. The Crazy Story was published through Chernovetsky’s personal website in spring.

Leonid Chernovetsky publishes The Crazy Story

The ex-mayor of Kyiv Leonid Chernovetsky, who now lives in Georgia, published a new book The Crazy Story. According to the author, this book is about victories and disappointments, about being betrayed by close people, about poor and neglected childhood. A story about “an ordinary urchin” who became a successful banker and politician.

Chernovetsky’s crazy bestseller

Interestingly, The Crazy Story is not the first opus of Leonid Mykhailovych. Prior to that, he published The Confession of the Mayor in 2008, How to Become a Millionaire and The Story of Success in 2009. The previous books sounded too official, whereas The Crazy Story looks like a confession rather than memoirs with such a title. It seems the ex-mayor of Kyiv wrote the book himself, or with some minimal help, and, no doubt, from the bottom of his heart.

“Never refuse money”. 20 quotes from a new book by Leonid Chernovetsky

The ex-mayor of Kyiv Leonid Chernovetsky published his book The Crazy Story. In the book, he tells the story of his life and gives his readers some pieces of advice on how to conduct business and to be a politician. Strana provides the most interesting quotes from the book.

ABOUT THE BOOK

«The Crazy Story» is a memoir of unusual person and a bestseller, the electronic version of which was read by over 100,000 people since its publication. The author’s life is full of ups and downs, victories and disappointments, friendship and betrayal, which are described in the book very vividly and emotionally.

This biography does not pretend to be “historic”. It’s just an exciting story about an urchin who grew into one of the most famous businessmen and politicians in Ukraine. What’s more important, it is about the simple and kind people he met during his life, about “earthly angels”, who gave him a helping hand in the most difficult periods of his life.

In the book, you will find the author’s vivid and precise recollections about the meetings and philosophy of Ukraine’s main political figures, as well as a lot of useful advice for those who are ready to walk the path of fame and success against all the odds and look for the answers to the most essential questions that life puts to them: how to find yourself, fully realise your potential, and, of course, to live a worthy life!

The book is ironic and sincere, its main characters being quite ordinary and open people who you often meet on your life’s journey, but sometimes you simply don’t notice how grand they are in their everyday behaviour and kindness.

The book "The Crazy Story" (2017)

Many years I have been haunted by the idea to write a book about my life, complicated and at the same time instructive for thinkers, enriched with many circumstances! This idea has always been on my mind, but there has never been time to stop and summarize, to make it loud and simple! And finally I have time and I am glad that my dream has come true.
