Book Review - Success is Around the Corner Written by H. E. Boney M. KatatumbaBook Review - Success is Around the Corner Written by H. E. Boney M. Katatumba
Above all, this book is dedicated to the people I think need it most- the youths of the world. For in them lies the key to our future. Hopefully, they can adopt the philosophy I share in this book to create an even better world for all.

I have been fortunate to have travelled to over a hundred different countries as Chairman G77 CCI. It is my conclusion that the youths are basically the same the world over. Their aspirations are often ignored as they struggle to find a niche in this sometimes cold and difficult world. Against the social, educational and political imbalances of societies in which they find themselves, they battle on, ever determined to make their voices heard.
- B.M. Katatumba

Views from Fiona: BeautyViews from Fiona: Beauty
The old adage ‘Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder’ is definitely true but beauty or being beautiful in relation to human beings is often misconstrued to mean the outer appearance of a person.
