What this book contains is a compilation of the good sides of the former Chief of Staff as espoused by his admirers whom I refer to as The Good; the not so bad accounts by those who felt let down and sidelined in the course of discharge of his duty as the ears and eyes of President Buhari, but tempered their anger with a balance of disappointment and compassion, and whom I have categorized as The Bad; and the very bitter ones amongst us who appear not ready to forgive Abba Kyari even in death and make no bones about their willingness to dance on his grave if they find the opportunity, perhaps owing to deep feelings of hurt arising from the loss of loved ones due to direct and indirect actions of Abba Kyari who they love to hate.
John C Maxwell shows that talent is just the starting point for s successful impact in any organization. It is what takes you beyond your talent that matters.
People everywhere are proving him right. Read the headlines, watch the highlights, or just step out your front door. Some talented people reach their full potential, while others self-destruct or remain trapped in mediocrity. What makes the difference? Maxwell, the go to guru for business professionals across the globe, insists that the choices people make not merely the skills they inherit propel them to greatness. Among other truths, successful people know that.

CRUSH-ED is not another whining story about the African experience, even though the title may lead in that direction. The title is really an acronym for the strategies that Africa (the sub-Saharan region in Particular), must adopt if it is not to face extinction in the medium to long term. The book presents pungent and urgent, analysis of the precarious situation that region of Africa has found itself; a situation foisted not only by the historical facts of slave trade and colonialism (as most texts on the subject are wont to aver), but most importantly the failure of the African states themselves to properly interpret their cultures and how those clash with the ones they are try to adopt and adapt to.

“With each new day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up knowing he must outrun the fastest lion or perish. At the same time, a lion stirs and stretches, knowing he must outrun the fastest gazelle or stave. It is no different for the human race. Whether you consider yourself a gazelle or a lion, you simply have to run faster than others to survive.
‘A little more than two decades after I made my first foray into political life, I stood in Mandela’s former cell in Robben Island. Standing there, I tried to transport myself back to those days when President Mandela was still Prisoner 466/64 – a time when the success of his struggle was by no means a certainty. I tried to imagine Mandela – the legend who had changed history – as Mandela the man who had sacrificed so much for change. Conversations with Myself does the world an extraordinary service in giving us that picture of Mandela the man.’
This is my sixth book and one in which I’ve been a bit more revealing. It should make very interesting reading because it is not a boring rant about economic and financial issues, but interesting dialogues on matters of mostly Nigeria’s sociopsychology and aspects of history. I personally enjoy such discourses better than the drone on the stiff subject of money and how it is made.
I think this is a more important aspect of the development quest of African people because from a systems point of view we should interrogate our lifeviews, our paradigms and of perspectives. Once the sociopsychological aspects are dealt with, development and progress becomes fairly easy and sustainable. The writings here reflect my mindset and perspective which fuses into my understanding of the larger issues towards ensuring that my people attain a better existence in this present world where no nation waits for another.

THE RACE FOR CAPITAL (And Other out-of-the-box Economic Arguments), is my third book and an aggregation of some my most important economic and financial thoughts in recent times, as distilled from my weekly column and elsewhere. The book’s title derives from the biggest economic argument of the day – the problem of inequality – which has finally been noticed by important economists around the world but to which no solution has yet been found. In this book, that argument is further advanced and an African perspective is added, because when ever important economic arguments such as this goes on, that most-vulnerable continent does not feature in the analysis. But the perspective of this book is not all about complaining about the state of Africa and its position development-wise, but also on solutions. Some germane solutions are hereby offered for African economies especially but every other economy around the world which seeks to reposition its people and make a dent in these hard-to-solve quagmires facing the world today. There are no simple solutions apparently.
