Socrates is portrayed by Ronald Gross, author of Socrates' Way: Seven Master Keys to Using Your Mind to the Utmost, published by Tarcher/Putnam. He co-chairs the University Seminar on Innovation, at Columbia University, and is an on-line columnist for ABOUT.com.

"Ron Gross calls Socrates up from the past to invigorate and enrich our lives today," says Michael Gelb, author of How to Think Like Leonardo.

SOCRATES' most recent appearances were at the conference of the International Society for Self-Directed Learning,  when his friend Ron Gross received the Society's award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement, and at the International Adult and Continuing Education Association when young Gross was inducted into  the Lifelong Learning HALL OF FAME.
