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!

It’s great when dreams come true! A good biographical book; I did not know much about you, you are a very interesting person. I am looking forward to the next book. Thank you!

I am always excited to read your books. Leonid Mikhailovich, you are a sophisticated and soulful person and I would consider it an honour to meet you personally. You are a person to look up to!

Hello. I am 25 and I live in Kyiv. Your work moved me deeply and I would like to talk with you personally. Please give me such an opportunity.

I finished the book in one sitting. Certainly, it would be great to read more about the business principles and rules, experience of doing business in Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries, but I really learned a lot just from the available content. The book is really exciting and touching. All the author’s stories are simply delightful. Thank you, Leonid Mikhailovich, from the grateful people of Kyiv! We do need more of such people who can build, create, draw up laws to benefit the country rather than themselves for 5 years, advocate for abolition of some taxes and VAT, people who see a big picture of development in the global community, so our country would go forward in leaps and bounds! We are always looking forward to seeing you in Kyiv!

Thank you!

Lydia

Dear Leonid, I’ve read your book and changed my opinion about you. The system did not break you and you are a romantic who helps people and, most importantly, you do it for yourself rather than for publicity, unlike others. Hats off to you to you! I wish you strength and sound health for your good deeds! Kind regards, Lydia (Chernomorsk)

Thank you, Lydia!

Vladimir

Dear Leonid, Your book is great! You can add some new content and useful information to the second edition. I wish you further success in your creative endeavours!

Hello! Reading your book made something in me turn upside down and explode. I’m by no means a poor man, I have a family, a job, an apartment. But looking around, I understand that I’m but a pauper. This is a sad reality of our country, which is very frustrating. I’m 33, and I feel like a like a hamster in the spinning wheel, with no light at the end of the tunnel in sight. Your book opened my eyes to life. Damn, but I forgot what simple kindness is, and you reminded me of this very important human quality. Our beloved country, or rather its blasted system with sadists in charge, is turning us (Ukrainians) into the likes of them. This leads to such cruelty and aggression around us! I do not know why, but your book reminded me of a book by Dale Carnegie, which greatly affected me 15 years ago. Best wishes to you and your family! Good luck in all your future endeavours! Thank you!

Elsa

My dearest Leonid, as I was reading your book, my heart filled with warmth and joy. You have faced a lot of struggle on your journey, and I believe that many people love you and feel the same about you. The book is very interesting and I am going to reread it. It tells many insightful things about life, and if you give it some thought, you can learn a lot. May the Lord keep you safe and give you courage. The best of luck! Yours faithfully, Elsa.

Thank you, Elsa, you are very kind-hearted!

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.
