StepCraft Books has announced the publication of “The Conversation”, a new book targeted at addressing common issues in family and marital relationships. It is written by Oludare Mayowa, a renowned financial journalist and writer.
The book, the fourth by the author, addresses major issues afflicting homes and families with practicable solutions to solving many of the challenges.
Mayowa explores a conversational method to examine issues that often cause problems among couples and skillfully leads the readers to in-depth action points to manage such issues.
Mayowa explained that the book is his first experiment in using the gift of conversation to engage his readers in discussing basic life essentials topics, particularly on relationships in the home, and to simplify what ordinarily looks like very difficult problems among couples.
“My experience in writing this book has also changed my perspectives on many issues addressed in the book and helped to refocus my thoughts on the possibilities of sustaining a good home if couples could diligently work at it,” he said.
Kunle Oyelana, the Chief Executive Officer, of GSK Consumer Plc, in his review of the book, described it as “practical,” “insightful,” “interesting,” and “life-transforming.”
“The author has written an easy-to-read masterpiece on the key issues affecting the home and how to navigate a number of obstacles that may arise.
“The life lessons in the various conversations in this book are invaluable to all,” he wrote.
On his part, Reverend Dele Abegunde, a lawyer and District Overseer of Foursquare Church, Magodo, Lagos described the book as practical counseling material, written in crisp prose with some poetic anecdotes provided when the conversations become heated in each situation.
“This book of twelve chapters could actually stand alone as twelve short counseling books.
“Each chapter could stand on its own. This was the allure of the book. You finish one chapter and you look at the heading of the next one, and you just want to go on and on, desirous to know how the next one would end.
“The lessons to be learnt are ageless as he laid them out in each chapter,” he said.
