Reviews - What do customers think about Sir John Templeton: Supporting Scientific Research for Spiritual Discoveries?

This book misses the mark regarding a remarkable man.  Dec 29, 1998
John Templeton is a great man. A successful investor who gained, if not the whole world, a large part of it without losing his soul. His life story should hold valuable lessons for all of us. Yet this book, displaying the lack of perspective and questioning that offen occurs when a close friend and coworker attempts biography, paints an image of a rather robotic being with discipline and intelligence but lacking humanity.

Templeton is disciplined, focused and successful from his youth. But he buries his mother and wife in quick succession seemingly without letting those traumatic events interfere in any way with the business of business.

World War II, a defining moment for his generation, is little more than an investment opportunity for Sir John- no mention of having contributed to the war effort in any way. Was he exempt for physical or family reasons? Was he a contentious objector? Did he feel badly that others were fighting and dying while he went about building a fortune?

He leaves America for the Bahamas and becomes a British citizen. Why? He seems to have changed national allegiance with no more thought than most of us give to changing a shirt. No explanation is given, no soul searching is hinted.

In the end, this book fails to tell anything more about who John Templeton really is and the forces that shaped him than could have been gleaned from a newspaper interview. Even the chapter on Humility theology is so filled with references to "Sir John" that one wonders if the word has been given a new meaning!

Where is the humility?, where is the humanity?
