A brief but pertinent analysis of Nigeria 's challenges including tribalism, indiscipline, corruption, ostentation. These problems are clearly not peculiar to Nigeria as from experience I have observed that the first 3 are evident in Uganda.
The book is, therefore, a good diagnosis of some of Africa 's problems and a pointer to their solution.

Written by an insider who loves his country but is not afraid to expose some of the major problems which leave one aghast that sensible men plunder the nation for their own personal ends, with scant regard for the health, education or basic human rights of their own citizens.

Another excellent piece of work by Sir Chinua Achebe! The book came handy on on our flight journey to Spain.
