    I pulled few strings, they [strings] snapped. Then I tried to bribe the incorruptible officials in IL Ministry.

    Gifts, hampers, coupons. Nothing worked.
    Hacked the server. Flipped to a restore point. Didn't work.
    Panicked, wailed, DOS attack on the host to crash it to reboot. Not a chance.
    More silk, salt, sandalwood, beans, khichdi, biryani ...as kickbacks
    Threats, molotovs, tomahawks. Zinch!

    Distraught, I edited the post the last ... 59th ... minute (before the edit window timed out 1 hour from create time)

    There are many good writers and thought provoking books so pinning down one particular book is difficult. I did enjoy The Amazing Results of Positive Thinking by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. I've also recommended to others who go through some difficult times.

    Recently I recalled the name of HRF Keating, with ref. to what sorts of books are easy reads and help in improving one's English Language skills, especially in this age of thin attention spans.
    here is another writer (~ same period, same genre) who demands a little more attention, but pays back well.
    Gaudy Night by Dorothy L Sayers – a weighty novel that still thrills
