The book that started it all. The first half of this book was first published online in June of 2012 after I'd worked on it for about two months on my personal blog for viewer feedback (of which I got none) but I did get a lot of reads.

One, a newcomer from the distant land of China and the other severely lacking in confidence and self esteem. The gifts that these two can share with one another will change their lives and may in turn save the world.

A tribute to two Toronto gems from the 1990s. Top O' The Senator and Montreal Bistro, both of which served up some of the best talent that Jazz music had to offer at the time. Also an admiring nod to the Physics and Science community.
