1998 English translation from Persian Robaiiat and their everlasting wisdom with emphasis on combating substance abuse and hypocrisy. Please note that this is not just another translation. It contains a uniquely detailed analysis of Khayyams personality according to his poems with emphasis on combating substance abuse and hypocrisy. The author calls Omar's Robaiiat " Literary tranquilizers," the cheapest and most effective means of inspiration, relaxation, self restraint necessary for a moderate and healthy lifestyle free from abuse and excess. This unique treatise is not merely another translation but much more and the only one of its kind. Reading this book is a must for those who are interested in factual and yet relaxing poetries, called "literally tranquilizers" by the author or recipes for a happy, healthy, long and independent life.

Academic work includes 18 years of teaching angronomy, soil science and agricultural education in Iran; 12 years of work as soil scientist and soil conservationist at USDOI. Presently semi-retired and constultant, but mostly involved in traveling, reading, writing and publishing. Deeply concerned about the unprecedented apathy and substance abuse in America and their spread in the world that follows America. The author has decided to devote the rest of his life in combating the unprecedentd hypocrisy which is the root cause of faulty education devoid of ethics and morality that will eventually lead to the defeat of democracy and freedom throughout the world.Review:
The fate which made Omar known to the West chiefly as a philosopher and poet rather than as a scientist and mathematician robbed him of a fame which would have pleased him more, since his poetical and philosophical works were perhaps not the writings in which he took the greatest interest. But he was not the oly philosopher whose scientific writings were neglected in the West. Others, both before and after him suffered the same fate. -- Davoud S. Kasir, Ph.D. Author, Algebra of Omar Khayyam, Teachers College, Columbia University.
