The book is an autobiography of the late sage and Yoruba leader, Chief Obafemi Awolowo of blessed memory.The author chronicled his early life from childhood in Ikenne, a town in current Ogun State, Nigeria, to the date when he was called to the bar as a member of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple.

Between these periods, the young Awolowo had attended several schools , been a domestic servant to four masters, gathered firewood for sale to settle his school fees and also worked as labourer in farms since he was determined to be great in life whatever it took him.

Later, he was a pupil teacher, stenographer, college clerk, newspaper reporter, money-lender, produce buyer, transporter, trade unionist, food contractor and letter writer.Much later, he became an emerging politician.

Having gone through the thick and thin at different phases of his life,a well rounded Awolowo, even before death, was referred to as a sage as he often had solutions to most human problems.
