AFRICAN YOUTHS MANUAL: Twenty-Eight Lessons From Sixteen Pages of History
"If History Repeats Itself, and the Unexpected Always Happens, how Incapable must Man be of Learning from Experience". George Bernard Shaw (Irish Dramatis, 1856-1950).
On the continent of Africa and in some parts of the world, great percentage of promising, energetic, talented and even highly educated youths, mostly graduates, are pitiably plunged into uncertainties, confusions and joblessness, especially at the end of their studies.
The sad part of the story? These young bloods actually struggled, moved through thick and thin, pay through their noses, to bag a number of degrees, only to discover after graduation that a sacrosanct bailiwick was omitted from the curricula/syllabi used in training them through school, thereby creating a vaccum.
The results of the above you ask? Majority of these innocent young minds ended up with knowledge, degrees and certificates, inapplicable to real life situations. Consequently, prospective leaders found themselves unable to make personal ends meet, did I mention caring for families or becoming blessings to their world?
The main cause of this challenge you ask again? Most African and some Extra-African schools, operate curricula/syllabi ridden with theories, mostly outdated and grossly irrelevant to the real world. Hence, as important and life-transforming as education could be, it is being inadequately handled through defective curricula/syllabus that trivialised an effective body of knowledge, both at the high school level and higher institutions, and what is this?
'Biographical Studies!'. "A body of post-modern knowledge, designed to train young future leaders in the art and science of historical experiences and certainties, capable of birthing repeated and repeatable successful achievements."
This vacuum is what this book, "African Youths Manual: Twenty-Eight Lessons from Sixteen Pages of History", has come to fill.
