Ah. Thanks for pointing that out. So it was a hold. I escaped that train a long time ago. I am a long term investor but there are some things I see that make me bail out...

That's why Sir Nosa can read all the behavioral finance books in the world but he can never get into my head.

According to the book the best thing to do next is nothing, most of us have made a killing and are feeling quite confident which is a bad thing.

When the 'Arrow of God' struck at things
Things were 'No Longer at Ease'
Which made 'Things to Fall Apart'.

I have always considered 'Arrow of God' as Achebe's greatest novel.

RIP to the literary 'Oga at the top'.

Yes Oga Migiets, I share your view. I also considered Arrow of God his best work but things “Things Fall Apart” got huge publicity because it was visually dramatized.

I read it in Form 1 years ago. That was where there was a vehicle that had 'SMOG' which means 'Save Me O God'.

I was never a literature student but i loved reading books in 'African Writers Series (AWS)'. Does not know what has happened to that series. Another series i would love to have resuscitated is 'Pacesetter' which had prolific writers like Kalu Okpi.
