A fresh look at nearly everything. A reflection on the past, present, and alarming future. A plausible fiction: A vessel from a superior planet lands on Earth. The visitor from this superior planet, Ezad, reports back facts to the planet of his origin. The reports are simple and occasionally humorous. Ezad tries to be unbiased, non-partisan, and objective in his reports. This book contains a factual study on how human civilization was built. Using a concise, plain language, it starts from the beginning of Earth, and covers the appearance of man, human faculties and failures, and briefly describes the major religions of the world. The history of Islam is explained in some detail. The history of science is brief, from its slow progression to its ever-increasing speed, from the Renaissance forward, leading to the current conveniences and modern way of life. In the final chapters, a timely and insightful topic - The Quest for International Unbreakable Peace - is discussed at some length. As Ezad’s reports are continuously being deciphered, the next edition(s) might get larger and find its way into every house on the planet.
