These are REAL ISSUES! As a middle-aged man, isolation became a thing for me. It looked like normal living. Staying away and slowly becoming vulnerable to genuine people was my Modus Operandi. These all came from parental impact.

What am I trying to say?

This book by IKALONE UDO is not one to quickly read. It is not a book for fancy but a book for depth, reflection, referencing, and rethinking. It is a manual for anyone who needs to be better in parenting, friendship, marriage, and life; even in business and the workplace. It is deep. It is rich. It is instructive. It is sobering. Please read it carefully. I celebrate you, Ikalone, for this masterly work. Well done
