            Ray Avery is an amazing person. He is the current NZer of the Year because of his clever work in the third world using his scientific and business knowledge to provide cheap cataract operations, cheap and more effective incubators for babies and other creative scientific solution...s. His childhood was very 'Angela's Ashes' - brought up in an orphanage (his own mother had tried to sell him?, then ran away and lived on the streets. But Ray went on to become a scientist, a millionaire, very successful businessman and now someone who literally does help to change the world. During the mid-nineties Ray spent most of his time working in Eritrea and Nepal setting up two world class Intraocular lens laboratories. At that time the cost of an Intraocular lenses was about US$300 but Ray managed to put the technology together to produce lenses for under US$10.00 making modern Cataract surgery accessible to the poor throughout Africa and Asia.Today these laboratories produce over 10% of the worlds supply of Intraocular lenses. Today he encourages other talented people to get on board and tackle some of the really big problems confronting the poor in developing countries. From his garage in Mt Eden Auckland Ray manages a global network of experts to work on specific projects and somehow everyone finds themselves donating their time and knowledge for free - and they are rewarded by making a difference.

            The Secret Life of Kim Dotcom: Spies, Lies and the War for the Internet
             

            The Secret Life of Kim Dotcom: Spies, Lies and the War for the Internet (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Fisher, David

            "From a lonely boy's bedroom in Germany to the penthouses of Hong Kong, from Wellington's Beehive to Washington's corridors of power, from the sedate suburb of Coatesville to the motor racing tracks of Europe, this is the untold story of the charismatic internet tycoon who has dr...iven governments to distraction while winning the affection of internet users worldwide and a large number of the New Zealand public. It recounts not only the high profile political and legal battles but also the behind the scenes domestic life of a man who has more wealth than he can spend in New Zealand and who once escaped to Europe for winter - and took his cars and furniture with him. Written by David Fisher, who has covered the story from the start for the New Zealand Herald , and who won the 2013 Reporter of the Year award in part for his coverage of the story, the book is not an authorised biography but has been written with the full co-operation of Kim Dotcom, who granted the author hours of exclusive interviews. The book also reveals: why Hollywood is obsessed with Dotcom; why he and wife Mona decided to settle in New Zealand; the full story of the dawn raid; what happened to Dotcom in jail; the truth about John Banks and Dotcom; and where The Hobbit comes into it"--Back cover.
