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!

Lamara

Having read the e-book, I came to believe it’s the best guide for the youth willing to scale new heights in business and politics… Dear friends, buy this book and you won’t regret it, let me tell you. I’ll certainly get it in print too.

Thank you for an interesting life story and all the key points highlighted in the book. It is so great to listen to a sophisticated person, a man of the world. In my opinion, you should keep writing or even start blogging. Thank you!

Tamara

I have started reading the book at breakfast and now I am done with it. I couldn’t help sharing my admiration with you. You are a great personality. I’ve read so many books in my life but only a few times I felt so satisfied after reading the last page. Thank you for that!

Iryna

I’ve bought the book because I have known Leonid Mykhailovych while working in PJSCCB Praveks-Bank 12 years ago. I understood that Leonid Chernovetskyi was a very smart person for not everyone could organize and wisely manage such a huge banking institution. At the time, I was astonished by the staffing methods (even a lie detector was used!), development of young talents, respectable wages, overtime premiums, annual corporation-wide parties, and other numerous nuances I had never experienced in similar companies I was working for. These very things enabled young people to make a great start in their lives. In 2008, when the bank got its new owners, the managers’ attitude towards the staff changed drastically, and not for the better. So, back to the book “Crazy Story”; I would like to say that in its pages I encountered the very manager, the image of which was created in my mind while working in the bank. I’ve read the book in one sitting. It is so interesting, fascinating, and, most importantly, every line is imbued with sincere love to other people... It is something we lack so much in our life... I have drawn up numerous conclusions and understood a lot of nuances concerning relationships between people. Thank you, Leonid Mykhailovych! Your book engages the readers to live, do good, and believe in what they’re doing! My relatives and friends are reading it now. I wish you success and more masterpieces!

A good book, a light read, quite interesting, fascinating, and heart-touching. Thanks to the author.

I was deeply impressed by your “Crazy Story”. Thank you so much for such a fascinating book imbued with love and gratitude. It is an inspiration for the readers to perform good deeds.

Yuriy

Good afternoon, Leonid! In your book, you called yourself a political turncoat. I have never heard such a precise and honest definition from any politician. You are a good and honest man who can teach us how to live and do business. Thank you for your book.

Maryna

Mr Leonid, having read your book, I love and respect you very much. You are a godsend, and I believe that those who find a place for Jesus in their hearts and follow his path will never be hurt by evil. Let the Lord give you good luck and strength to do good deeds. Live long to show everyone how to do good things on the Earth.

Thank you! As an author, it’s a pleasure to read that!

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.

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.
