Summary

Wounds that cannot be seen are the most of severe pain, compared to those of an eye witness, as it is not easy for one to realise that they need medical treatment to cure. This book is based on a true life story of Samson Olayiwola Kolawoles who long-held the belief that there are better and brighter future prospects ahead of him in South Africa, the land that was not of his birth. His believe on his future prospects analysis relied mainly on his commitment, dedication, but above all on the Creator  the universe. The genesis of his long-held belief emanates from the principle: A good head and a good heart are at all times of life a powerful and formidable conquering force.The publications narration of a life journey provides human intelligence with an insight that as human beings, through the unavoidable natural process of life, one inadvertently incurs many obligations.The truth is that naturally as human beings irrespective of the land of our birth, we are born in possession of life obligations and as one grows, they accumulate. Hence, it is important for human beings including Africans to have tranquil relations so that no one can say, African parents have committed the biggest debt or sin for giving birth to any African soul.The strong belief in African morals, values, convictions and principles played a great role in the writing of this book. One of the principles is that there are many things that one can do to build and take care of planet earth - of Africa in particular, in this instance. Whether we know it or not, there are human beings on planet earth who have the potential to destroy it. The life journey of the main character motivated the author to feel responsible for doing what is humanly correct and compelling morally, which was to devise a means of contributing in reducing the potential of those who are highly committed to destroying the African motherlandAbove all, the trials, tribulations and triumphs of the main character inspired the author to write this book. The primary aim of the author is to see him-self playing a pivotal role in educating, imparting and sharing knowledge and information amongst African humanity and the entire world as a part of the contribution to saving the other part of planet earth, namely Africa, which is important.The events of the life journey of the main character have undoubtedly proved how the African world could be destroyed to the point where ultimately there would be no tolerance and no support to each other socially, politically or economically as Africans. Certainly, there is and there will be no other relevant time for Africans to ask that to one another when such happens. The underlying question becomes, why should we as Africans always allow ourselves to be viewed by the outside world as the people who are incapable of caring of their rich soil and for themselves? Is this a curse and you believing so, then Africans just accept that you do not belong to Africa but where they belong is nowhere. Africans, your appearance does not occur to yourselves as being individuals from various African countries but it presents a collective African picture. That is why it is imperative to have a good picture about Africa and its people collectively. Realise that as people we are viewed in comparison to the behaviour and appearance of others. Africans, you need to be worthy of trust to one another. If there is no confidence and reliability to one another, then, Africa, you are at risk of collapsing. The end result is that you will become the advocates and champions of the African pessimism and colonial system of special type agenda.

    “If you love Sherlock Holmes, you’ll love this book…the best account of Baker Street mania ever written.”—Michael Dirda, The Washington PostWinner of the Agatha Award for best nonfiction workEdgar Award finalist for best critical/biographical workAnthony Award finalist for best critical/nonfiction work Everyone knows Sherlock Holmes. But what made this fictional character, dreamed up by a small-town English doctor in the 1880s, into such a lasting success, despite the author’s own attempt to escape his invention? In From Holmes to Sherlock, Swedish author and Baker Street Irregular Mattias Boström recreates the full story behind the legend for the first time. From a young Arthur Conan Doyle sitting in a Scottish lecture hall taking notes on his medical professor’s powers of observation to the pair of modern-day fans who brainstormed the idea behind the TV sensation Sherlock, from the publishing world’s first literary agent to the Georgian princess who showed up at the Conan Doyle estate and altered a legacy, the narrative follows the men and women who have created and perpetuated the myth. It includes tales of unexpected fortune, accidental romance, and inheritances gone awry, and tells of the actors, writers, readers, and other players who have transformed Sherlock Holmes from the gentleman amateur of the Victorian era to the odd genius of today. From Holmes to Sherlock is a singular celebration of the most famous detective in the world—a must for newcomers and experts alike. “Riveting…[A] wonderfully entertaining history.”?TheWall Street Journal “Celebrates the versatility of one of fiction’s most beloved characters…terrific.”?TheChristian Science Monitor

    One evening in late October 1958, the deepest coal mine in North America "bumped"-its rock floors heaved up and smashed into rock ceilings. Most of the men on the shift perished. But nineteen men were trapped alive a mile below the earth's surface, struggling to survive without food, water, light, or fresh air.  
    Almost a week passed without rescue. Hopes of finding life dwindled; then a miracle happened: Rescuers stumbled across a broken pipe that led to the cave of survivors. In the media circus that followed, the survivors' endurance was mythologized and twisted, and the state of Georgia's tourism ploy-inviting the survivors to recuperate on a Georgia beach-turned racist and pitted the miners against each other. 
    Using long-lost stories and interviews with survivors, Greene has reconstructed an extraordinary drama of their struggle and miraculous rescue.
