I Remember chronicles the captivating life of Professor Ladipo Adamolekun, and his rise from a humble background to a distinguished career in academia and public service. He lovingly recounts his childhood and credits his strong educational foundation, which culminated in a scholarship at Oxford University, as the driving force behind his commitment to learning and service. With consummate skill, he recaps an eventful life involving teaching and research at Ife, several national public service engagements, and multidimensional development work at the World Bank. The narrative clearly highlights virtues such as hard work, courage, selflessness and integrity which the author exhibits as well as the indelible marks which he has made in his discipline and society at large. This book is not only a vivid tale of one man, but is also an instructive read for everyone, particularly stakeholders in Nigeria's university system and public service, and people who would like to achieve great success in their life pursuits.
