After six decades at the helm of National Geographic, Gilbert Grosvenor takes readers into his past adventures and lifelong passions in his memoir, A Man of the World.

Features

  • Provides a front-row seat to stories of exploration, such as the successful hunt for the Titanic
  • Filled with travel, charismatic explorers and the challenges of running a publishing empire, it's the story of a man, a family business and the changing face of American media
  • Grosvenor shows us what it was like to "grow up Geographic" in a family home where figures like Robert Peary, Louis Leakey and Jane Goodall regularly crossed the threshold
  • He also narrates the shift from a nonprofit, family-focused enterprise to the more corporate, bottom-line focused world of publishing today
  • As staff photographer, editor-in-chief and then president of the organization, he oversaw the flagship magazine as well as diversification into television, film and books
