    Hi Uzoma,
    well, since, I am not a WordPress member anymore, I can-not leave you a direct message at your blog, for, your comment settings do not permit.

    Thank you so very much for the brilliant review – I relished the comparative thought in your assertion. That you took time to read and review our book adds an instant smile mingled with much gratitude. Both, I and Soumya are receiving great support from our readers and we are deeply humbled. The book is about all of us – the spinal cord -humanity.

    Heartfelt thank you, my dear African mate (yes! I also hail from the Red Soil!).
    Cheers
