What if you had the seven most powerful ideas in the world?
 
For a thousand years rumors spread among the desert peoples that mysterious scrolls containing fantastic secrets had fashioned the Abdali-ud-din into the richest, most powerful trading dynasty in the world.
 
Men would kill for such knowledge. Indeed, they had killed. And then suddenly, the scrolls simply disappeared.
 
This is the story of the last holder of the scrolls, an old chief named Zafir. Worried that his life was nearly spent, Zafir chose young Bassam to be his heir to the scrolls. Was Bassam ready? To prove the young man Zafir took him on a long caravan trek with the intent of teaching him the scrolls. Partway into the trip came a deadly surprise. Things changed.
 
The hidden messages of the scrolls are timeless. The same secrets that gave such riches to the dynasties of old are just as potent today. Learn these cryptic mysteries that Zafir passed to Bassam, and Bassam to his beloved Rasha, and be delightfully surprised how the Seven Secret Scrolls may guide all who possess them on a pleasant journey toward peace and prosperity.

Paul Skousen shows us he has the gifts of descriptive metaphors and modifiers of all kinds. He makes Bassam and the Seven Secret Scrolls so interesting, so down to earth, that a book one may never have considered reading becomes one which changes one's soul.

Paul Skousen could be described as the Ayn Rand of the desert.  He weaves a surprising message into a tapestry of unexpected threads, placing his protagonist in a very different environment than might be anticipated for a story of individual liberty and self-determination. Read it for yourself, give it to your (older) children, better still, give it to your liberal friends; everyone might learn something useful in addition to enjoying a rollicking good story.

This is a beautifully written story given to us as if it was a tale only the most esteemed sages, descendants of eons past, have deemed us worthy enough to pass it on to. Every word commands our attention as not a single one is to be missed or we may lose the meaning of the entire book. The excerpt has an ancient feel to it that leads me to imagine reading it by oil lamp in one of the caves described in the story.
A mystery almost as vexing if not more than the one the author has written. I felt the excerpt to be one with almost magical powers.
