This book authored by Dr. Jonathan O. Chimakonam and published by AuthorHouse, Bloomington Indiana USA in 2012 is, without doubt, unique, valuable and captivating.

To indicate that it can be systematically and philosophically approached is another audacious statement. Asi Okuko na nke obu n'onu ebuka owerekwa ukwu n'abota ozo. But Dr. Chimakonam is not an idiot: he knows the difference between Confucius and confusion. Go through the book and observe a display of originality, dexterity, skill, learning and knowledge therein contained.
