"Although my father had modest education, he had a thirst for education and a natural gift for learning. As a result, he placed education at the top of his priorities for his children and everyone else who passed through his hands: - MOODY AWORI
Riding on a Tiger is an epic journey of discovery. It is the story of a man lured by both the thrill of adventure and the courage to lose sight of the shore to discover the mysteries of the sea of life. This work seeks to reconstruct the author's beginnings in a large God-fearing family in the early decades of the 20th century and how those beginnings became the anvil on which his character as an unrelenting businessman and philanthropist were forged. In this bare-all work, Moody Awori, or Uncle Moody as many have come to fondly call him, says it all. From how he came to live in whites-only neighborhoods before his time, through the plunge into the tumultuous world of politics, to what led to the much-famed prison reforms. It is a story of a nation as seen through the eyes of one who has seen it all.
It is not daily that I come to connect with such great insights. It is appalling yet appealing that we are always on social media surfing net without prioritizing books which have stood test of time. This is a book which I highly recommend to be read across the globe. It is awesome!
