This is a down to earth collection of poems for those who love and more interestingly for those who do not love poetry. Poetic rhymes are the vehicles, Tasos Yacalis uses to convey wisdom about life. Love, marriage, sex, courage, freedom, joy, rejection and conscience are some of the areas that are touched through the eyes of not only an experienced psychologist but most importantly those of a sensitive human being. Brief explanatory prose prior to each group of poems ease the reader into understanding and appreciating the poems more. One of the central messages of the book is that life is precious and should be lived to the fullest. This is beautifully expressed in the poem that follows:

As other men search for immortality,
I rest my case and let it be,
Far greater joy I find in the here and now.
I know not of other worlds at least not now.
Who has ever returned to tell us where they have gone,
Or that our souls keep travelling on.
My heart says make of this life the most you can,
There may not exist any other plan.
