He owns a czech, then US-american and at last a swiss passport, he gets a conductors and piano diploma, becomes a theologist and psychologist – and reaches the pre-clinical exam in medicine. Therefore the title of his book is “Roller Coaster” – it is written in present time and thus involves the reader in this interesting life.

His father was  a well-known musician (viola), his mother from a factory owner´s family and his grandfather Thomas Mann german Nobel Prize winner for literature. Frido Mann, favourite grandson of Thomas Mann gives a rare impression of one of Germany´s best-known families.
