[BOOK REVIEW] ATOMIC KNOWLEDGE Creativity at the speed of shock! – Samson Adah Paul

David Oyedepo wrote the foreword of this book where he noted that this book is a view similarly canvassed by the author of this marvelous book.

Readers will definitely find the arguments so poignantly and succinctly espoused in Samson Adah Paul’s new book – Atomic knowledge, highly thought-provoking.

This book is recommended book for all students at Covenant University, Ota, Nigeria.
The makeup of this book consists of fourteen chapters.

Chapter one focuses on tertiary institutions who are expected impact knowledge to students are not doing so. He noted that universities have become uni-cemeteries. Rather than producing elites that the society will depend on, our schools now produce parasites that depend on the society.

He noted that we still import several domestic products can be locally developed by us here. It is a slap on our intellectual dignity that we still import products that even trained monkeys can produce. Wherever they are, our ancestors will perpetually be biting their fingers in shame and regret… wandering if we, their great-grand children were born with expired-brains. He said development is not when people become privileged enough to afford, access and enjoy the good things of life. Development rather is when people become creative enough to produce the good things of life.

Atomic Creativity is the focus of the author in chapter two, he noted that during the phase of Analogue Creativity, it was business at the speed of snail. By the age of Digital Creativity, it was business at the speed of thought. But by the emerging age of Atomic Creativity, it is business at the speed of shock. He said that Africa need to wake up from self deception. It would be Africans that would suffer the most from the torture of the mainstream presence of atomic shock.

The third chapter is on Atomic knowledge; he noted that sound education is not only about academic excellence, it is much more about productivity excellence.

Academic excellence is a result of definition knowledge, while productivity excellence is a result of revelation knowledge. He said that the proof of education is not the emergence of a breed of polished citizens, thoroughly versed with western lifestyle.

Academic witchcraft is the topic for discuss on chapter four of the book. He said it is not craving to know that generates knowledge; rather, it is the craving to serve that generates knowledge. This was King Solomon wisdom secret. You don’t further school because you want to be promoted at work but because you want your work to be promoted by you. In other words, the fruit of education is not money; the fruit of education is productivity.

Chapter five is on Mindicap, while handicap is the state of bodily disability, mindicap is the state of mental disability. Schooling that cannot make men produce is not education, it is simply decoration. If education is all about information, then Banks would have resolved to buy banking and Finance text books to employ as staff.

According to the author, he said this may sound heresy but the truth is that thinking is superior to reading. While reading is the accumulation of knowledge; thinking is the cultivation of knowledge. The mind sees through thinking. Thinking is the eyes of the mind.

The authors also, pinpoint how robots are being built to replace men in industry especially those handling menial jobs.
