Daniel Krauthammer


The Point of it All: A Lifetime of Great Loves and Endeavors explores Charles Krauthammer’s notable writings and speeches from his 30 years as a national columnist and philosopher, covering topics like politics, popular culture, medicine, and human nature. Krauthammer was a Pulitzer Prize-winning, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and best-selling author before he died in June at the age of 68.

The collection, which Charles was working on before he passed away and was edited by his son, Daniel, also includes essays on America’s place in the global arena and the legacy that he left behind. It includes a deeply personal section on family, living with disability and dying, as well as Daniel’s eulogy for his father.

Daniel will present a look at the book and Charles’ life during his Keynote Address at SBF.
