got the faintest idea, when you can buy any book around, written by
known and famous authors. What's this book about? - The wisdom and folly
of man probably. But before you shell out your money, it's not about
sex, it's got no murder in it, no car chases and nobody finds a horse's
head in his bed in the morning. This is merely a collection of stories,

Yes, was another short version answer. I was committed to follow my
interests and delve into things that I felt I can master, eventually
control and lead. I am a lousy follower and joiner. It never worked for
In a nutshell, that's
what the book is about. You might enjoy it. After you done with it, I
would love to hear your thoughts, you might be able to explain it better
than I did. Enjoy!
