Nearly a year ago, I posted on Facebook* that I was starting this book project of my memoirs. The reactions made me smile; one, from a cousin, made me laugh:

"Yay! You are one of the most fascinating, smart, sexy, imaginative, funny, clever, handsome men of our time. It shall be quite a read!" Leslie Dame

Now how do I live up to that?!

You're probably wondering, Edward Who?! So before you begin, maybe you want to check me out at "Who is Edward Carter?" On your mobile phone, just click on the Menu Block at the upper right corner, and follow the plain text list.

This is the story of most of my amazing life. Starting in 1940 in Westchester County, north of New York City, my romantic adventures have bred lasting friendships and dynamic companies around the world.

Besides setting up companies, creating jobs, and motivating ordinary people to do extraordinary things, perhaps I'm best known for handsome partners, stylish parties, and stunning homes, culminating in "The White Elephant" in the wilds of Thailand today.

The Introduction and Chapters One through Eighteen are complete, just click on "Book Contents" in the menu bar to select and read them. The rest of my memoirs are "under construction" - working on Chapter Nineteen right now.

Below is my study in our home that we call "The White Elephant." I'm at the desk writing to you right now.

Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos meet.
