Personal Computers have evolved and invaded almost every house since their debut. They have become an indispensable necessity for most of us.

Saved By Simple Logic teaches good ethics and manners and shows that corruption leads to havoc. It shows that any society can defeat a corrupt system by uniting and using knowledge wisely. It also illustrates that every person is useful to their society regardless of sex, age, and capabilities. The stories in this book concentrate on logic and promote analysis, creativity, and critical thinking.
