In this third part of his Wisdom Trilogy, an older and even wiser Solomon addresses a more mature audience -- individuals who have probably experienced some personal success and possibly also dismal failure and disillusionment, and are now ready to review their lives and re-assess their goals.
According to Smith's "Dictionary of the Bible", Ecclesiastes is the greatest stumbling block of commentators. However, the continual references made by Jesus, James and Paul to Solomon's mysterious work strongly suggests that it is in fact one of the very most important books in the whole of the Hebrew Scripture now known to Christians as the Old Testament.
The reasons for the apparently illogical structure will become clear later.

About the Author
I am a retired science teacher/writer, having worked in the UK and US, the author of a series of secondary science texts and a book on creative thinking and problem solving, "Take Charge of Tomorrow -- and Change It!" (Random House, 1997).
When researching my book on creativity I came in contact with the late Edward Matchett, a world authority on creativity and genius, who, as the result of a casual aside, got me started studying the famous "Song of Solomon", the "greatest puzzle in all literature". I was surprised to notice in the Song some of the principles I had been writing about. Further study revealed the "Song" to be meticulously structured exposition of the principles of creativity, even genius.
Unable to find a publisher for the material, I have self-published it as "King Solomon's Masterclass in Creativity", showing it to be the third part of a wisdom trilogy, along with Solomon's Proverbs and Ecclesiastes..
The e-book version is also available as "King Solomon's master class in creativity and genius". The same title is also available in paper back.
I have since researched the evolution/creation question, exposing the errors of both parties, and proposing a simple final solution in the book "EvoGenesis -- Easy answers to evolution", the micro-biological content of which has been approved by a top scientist at the HPA, Porton Down, UK.
