This book is not a bibliography that talks about the Assyrian personalities through talking about its personal life, despite the rareness of such books among Assyrians. It is a book, which through its contents, seems to be based on analysis and comparisons of the thoughts of the leader and his nationalistic, cultural and religious activism with another Assyrian nationalistic intellectual, Farid Nuzha. Then comparing this with some of the modern applications.
