Dr Herbert Keyser, Finding Barbara

The total accumulation of successes achieved by Herb during his life do not reach the level of just one particular achievement - FINDING BARBARA, who with the angelic magic she possessed, became his soul mate. When he lost Barbara, Herb reverted back to being the empty shell he was before she entered his life. This book is about the journey Herbie took with Barbara, and the devastation he felt when he lost her.

Dr. Herb Keyser has had a fifty-year career in Medicine. After publishing a number of scientific articles and medical books, he wrote his first two books about healthcare for the public, Women Under The Knife and Prescription For Disaster: Healthcare In America. The publication of these resulted in multiple network and local TV appearances, including three appearances on Nightline with Ted Koppel.Dr. Keyser then turned his attention from writing on issues of public health to lighter fare. Two Drifters Off To See The World documented, with humor, a year of travel through Europe with his beloved wife Barbara. As the basis of his next book, he persuaded fourteen of the most famous pastry chefs in Paris to invite him into their establishments to learn how to make their lemon tarts. From that experience he wrote, A Chautauquan Searches Paris For The Best Tarte au Citron. As a result of that publication more than $50,000 has been raised in support of the Chautauqua Institution through the sale of his book and the lemon tarts. In 2009, Dr. Keyser completed a book based on his lifelong love of musical theatre, Geniuses Of The American Musical Theatre. It was published by the largest music book publisher in the world, The Hal Leonard Corporation, and has received great critical praise. Following his retirement from the practice of medicine in 2012 he now spends two to three months each year as a lecturer on the world's most prestigious cruise lines, telling the stories of America's greatest composers, lyricists and performers. Herbie wrote Finding Barbara in loving memory of his beloved wife, Barbara, with whom he spent many wonderful years, filled with happiness and joy. Finding Barbara describes the struggles they went through during the years leading up to their wedding day, and the challenges and sorrows that followed, leading up to the day he lost her after a devastating search to find a cure for the sickness that ended her life.
