Born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1954, Johan Harmenberg switched from tennis to fencing as a youth. He felt he had no future as a fencer because of his inadequate technique. When he decided to study computer science at MIT, he thought he was giving up his fencing career. Instead, he gave it new life. At MIT, he met an inspired coach, the late Eric Sollee, who asked his athletes tough questions. One evening, at a bar in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Eric and Johan jotted "Three Conjectures" on a napkin. On his return to Sweden, Johan proved these conjectures to be true, and his book tells how. Johan was World Champion in 1977 and Olympic Gold Medalist in 1980; then, his dreams realized, he became a distinguished medical researcher, specializing in HIV studies. He is currently CEO of the research company Axelar AB in Stockholm.
