It is a book about how youths can change their life, if after reading this book their mindset is changed. In this book there are about six life changing topics and each one contains lots of sub-topics. At the beginning of the book, there is one letter written by Samuel O. J. Boi to the author of the book as he was inspired by the thoughts printed in the book. The book is published by Better Yourself Books. It is the 2nd edition which was copy written @ 1972 The Bombay Saint Paul Society. The book is all about succession, love, how to live and trust. The purpose of the book is to change the mindset of the teenagers and to help them avoid bad things.

It is an amazing I must say, the work done by Uncle Charles is awesome. With his zest for living, is a talented singer, musician, playwright, poet, guide, philosopher and friend. I think that this book would be an invaluable asset to every home as a powerful stimulus to thought and a perennial source of inspiration to all, particularly to the young. When I started reading the book I was not excited but after reading it a while I started liking the book and I finished reading this book with excitement. After reading this truly my mindset has been changed and I am over being a good human being. Those who read my review should at least have a look on this book.

Thank you.
