After reading the manuscript, the Vigoré review committee was intrigued with the writing. “One generation passes away and another generation comes, but Earth abides in its own life cycle. The people wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principles, against the challenge to find their purpose and path, against powers, against rulers of darkness, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

This science fiction story reflects many real life situations and portrays a possible future view of the extended universe.

The Vigoré committee found a common thought. “If we had this knowledge 30 years ago it would have made things so much easier. The questions and tips covered in this book will allow men to discover a woman’s inner beauty and hopefully wonderful experiences to be shared. The questions reveal a woman’s personality and character.”

The 38 questions approach is meant to open a man’s mind to communicate with women in a romantic, playful and still serious meaningful way developing a relationship be it friends, dating or long term involvement.
