This is another masterpiece in the series of several literatures generated out of the passion and flair for scholarship by a young and enterprising Nigerian academician. Dr Umar's love for young people and the burning desire for positive change in developing socities, with the youth at the centerstage, could'nt have been more expunged. With a sociological background, a youth leader of a decade of experience and a former special assistant to the governor on youth matters, no one could have articulated youth issues better. No wonder, this should be a must read for every stakeholder in the area of youth development, global peace and national security. Yet, this is another profound document which should be a guide for successful youth living in an ever challenging world of today. Indeed, it makes an exciting reading.
