Thanks to Maureen Kline for solving the Peter Kline mystery:

Hi, just came across this post although it’s over a year old and you have surely solved the mystery by now; the “real” Peter Kline is my father, who currently lives in the Washington DC area (Silver Spring, MD). He started out as an English and Drama teacher in Washington area private schools, and co-founded Thornton Friends School in the 1970s. The school had a very innovative approach and great success, particularly in turning around “problem students.” Eventually he and his then-wife Nancy turned the school over to others to pursue other projects, and Dad has been “free-lancing” ever since, mainly training teachers in various school systems around the country, writing the books you mentioned, and doing extensive training within companies (Kodak, IDC and others).

Update: PK himself checks in with a comment to the original post.

Peter: If you get any of my letters from the Nobel Committee, will you please pass them on?
