Finding Your Way to Heaven Without a Smartphone

Sarasota, Fl., January 26, 2016 – First Edition Design Publishing has announced the worldwide release of ”Finding Your Way To Heaven Without a Smartphone.” In clear, everyday, jargon-free language, the author, Joe Obidiegwu, shares unique, thought-provoking, insights on what it means to be human in our startlingly dehumanizing smart device saturated age.  Drawing from personal life stories that began in a small village in Africa, Mr. Obidiegwu patiently and quietly guides the reader on a revealing journey of cultural inquiry and self examination,  exploring the hidden histories, philosophies, and religious traditions that subtly but fundamentally inform and shape how we exist and how we experience our world.  His captivating narratives bring to life in vivid terms the divine purpose underlying human existence, enabling the reader to engage in active self revelation and empowering awareness and understanding.  Parents of all ages, teachers, and anyone in the position to directly influence the life of another human being will find this book valuable. It speaks directly to middle-aged readers because they are at the stage where life is often viewed as a futile ”war of attrition” against Father-time rather than a ”laborious voyage of love.” The reader among other things will learn:


1.There is a real difference between intelligence and wisdom

2. Life challenges are the indispensable ingredients for growth

3. Aging is not a curse but nature’s only way of opening our eyes to wisdom

4. The human being is inherently related to the universe in a verifiable way

5. Life is not a race to achieve high social status in society, but rather a long and slow transformational process towards human excellence
