I just read my copy of Hear Word.





Spread the love

By Dr. Adimea Obed.

I decided to practically Hear Word this morning.

My Chief Dr. Ovundah Nyeche ‘finished work’ in this sensational wisdom of the century wrapped in short relatable stories. All in one book

Mixed with enough humour in his characteristic manner that will leave your laughing and learning.

The book contains too much knowledge for the ‘shikini’ money it goes for.

It is divided into 6 parts made up of many short sweet stories.

1)Love sex and marriage ( 17 stories)
2)Leaders of tomorrow (9 stories)
3)Learn, Unlearn, Relearn. ( 4 stories).
4)Pause, Think and Do ( 6 Stories)
5)Social Media etiquette ( 6 stories)
6)Where there is a Doctor. (10 stories)

Tell me why you should not read this book this year?

As a doctor that I am, I couldn’t help but notice an interesting Story in part 6.
Chapter 48
Topic: Diabetes and power failure… can you imagine😂? You must read that story oh.

Final thought there was. It is only wise to listen to your doctor. If you know you will eventually go to the hospital, then just go there first.

This book shall win awards. Note that I told you that first.

Get you own copy from Dr Ovundah Nyeche, too much wisdom.

When OVD speaks l listen.
