A very interesting portrayal of an ordinary life searching and dealing with the plight and challenges of "unanswerable" questions we all face from time to time. The characters represent influences, dynamics of human behavior and outcomes in a quasi-comical context that makes this book easy to read. Though this book addresses the concepts of ignorance and wisdom, the use of words stands out as an effective tool to solicit contextual reasoning and understanding of innumerable configurations of social, emotional, mental, psychological, volitional and spiritual statuses that are generally oblivious to many. It becomes quite impossible not to become a part of the processes. You cannot miss out from this experience because it perhaps may be the experience of everyone.

I have worked in the field of mental health and addictions for a long time and I came to notice that the people in treatment represent a small fraction of the population giving the false idea that mental health and addiction issues are limited as such. This is not the case at all because with the varying degrees of intensity and severity, many more people are affected who for the most part do not appear to be in need of intervention. In some cases these people appear untroubled and appear to function acceptably and often times hold positions of great authority. This book is about such a person. Hope you enjoy reading it.
