Susan E.B. Schwartz is an American non-fiction writer who is a Partner to the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. She is also the author of the biography of medical and rock climbing pioneer, Hans Kraus (Into the Unknown: The Remarkable Life of Hans Kraus). The book was a finalist at the Banff Book Competition and won the 2006 Eric Hoffer Award and Writer’s Notes Award. The book was republished by Skyhorse Publishing as JFK's Secret Doctor, with a foreword by Patagonia, CEO, Yvon Chouinard. The back pain exercises that Kraus used to cure JFK of his back pain - tragically, one month before he was assassinated - have become the subject of back pain clinical trials by Stamford Hospital and the YMCA.
