Description/Review:

This book is a response to the decaying of the mind, an attempt for our young people to recapture their mind. This is an important book by this 73-year old poet. With this work of quotes, Alberto is trying to influence our young people to think in terms of conceptional systems, to see beyond the obvious, beyond the physical, the need to begin “critical thinking.” This book is best effective when used by the teacher, counselor, or mentor, to guide and encourage students to open the cover of the book and enter the universe, the pages of quotes leading to an exciting and challenging journey. It is a book, a weapon to challenge and provoke their minds.
