What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
All throughout my life I have been greatly interested in the world of thought, and I have had the privilege of being exposed to it from very different angles. I have always had a great desire for knowledge while, at the same time, could not fail to see the enduring gap between our general state of knowledge and how we conduct ourselves in general on daily basis. It is this love for knowledge and my frustrations with this enduring gap that set me to write Reflections on Fundamental Matters.
