Literally, I could not sleep; hyperbolically, I could not breathe, until I finished reading Life Begins at 70 – A Godfather’s Confessional Memoir. . . It’s that good – pure and simple! The memoir of Bola Dauda is breathtaking and “bewitchedly” captivating! This is one book to be read in whole, diligently, and with undivided attention.

Reading Bola Dauda rekindles the feelings I had with The Confessions of Saint Augustine. Both are spiritually anchored and authentic. A nugget for readers interested in personal biographies. Dr. Dauda provides practical suggestions that are applicable to those nefarious issues of daily existence and along with it, several amusing stories and anecdotes.

This book celebrates the narrative character of the moral life, accents the historical nature of social existence, and holds up virtues as the foundation of the good life. In telling the story of his life, Dr. Dauda has put forward a theory of the narrative formation of individual or group character that should enliven social ethics in Africa.

The critical thinking of Dr. Bola Dauda makes this uncommon autobiography of a naked emperor an inspirational guide to a life of freedom, purpose, integrity, joy and success in the world today. Teens and adults as well as parents will find the cakes one could eat and keep from his bakery in the secret garden delectable and nourishing to the soul.
