Editors Note:
The contemporaneity, particularity as well as the universal essence of most of the stories encompassed in this book, coupled with a unique style of narration, make it a must read for readers of all shades and colours. Having been a co-pilot in making this informative and scintillating book to fly, I can only invite you, my dear reader, to commune with this "Child of the Universe", who has a "Restless Mind". Grab a copy for yourself and your progeny. Assuredly, you will begin to see things clearly.

Book 1

The first part titled "The Restless Mind" is dedicated to all my many students at the University of Nairobi whom I used to call my "classmates". Most of them know the trials and tribulations we went through to unleash the genius in their minds.

Book 2

The second part titled "The Road Taken" is more autobiographical and tells of some of the numerous journeys I have taken on this planet earth. It is dedicated to my immediate family led by their mother Catherine Ngima, our children Mwihaki & John Muraguri, Teshi Wambui, Naledi Ngima and Baraka Waibochi, Kris and Sharon Kinyanjui, Ngima, Wambui and Mia Mwihaki, and Michael and Gigi Macharia, Marlee Ngima and Jojo Kimura. They alone know what it means to have lived with "Babu" in pursuit of his diverse dreams.
Bless you all.
