Nowadays when I look at the library shelves, especially in the literary sections, I wonder: Is there any hope for the new generation to break into these legitimate castles? To look at its treasure of human heritage, then meditate on the reason of them being abandoned! And possibly ponder about their uselessness! It would be difficult to understand them because of their abundance and diversity: they are huge! There is: Shortage of time, culturally weak establishment of new generations in educational institutions, shallow media space run by business interests to entertain such endeavors and scarcity and weakness of reform initiatives. This book is an attempt to attract new generations to these treasures in an innovative way; it may open the door to other creative ideas aimed at changing the status quo, which worsens quickly. The prevailing belief that public culture is not a priority must be corrected. It is a negative understanding that has led to the decline of its social role in building the national character. This is what we see in every situation and social scene every day.

The author is a professional economist and holds a degree in Development Economics from the United States. He worked as an economist throughout his career until he retired. He is an active person and has numerous hobbies. He reads for at least six hours a day from various fields, because he sees a close link between all disciplines that cannot be separated. A lover of literature from childhood, he organizes poetry and writes stories; he has many reflections, but in the last ten years, the subject of education has taken over all his thoughts, effort and time. After a long contemplation, he derived the result that education and its outputs (often) do not add to an integrated, distinctive, and personal life. This figure, no matter how accomplished at the scientific level and grades, remains educationally deficient; this deficiency is difficult to remedy at an advanced age, because the precise and preferred time to establish a character is pre-school years, especially the first three years of human life. This is what led him to write a two-part book on the subject (learning and not working) and (residential neighborhood). He is also interested in the subject of comparative religions and the purposes of Shari’a. He is now examining the social role of religion.
