While stuck in a traffic jam, instead of getting frustrated, wouldn't it be better to use the time to write out our thoughts at that moment? Indeed, that is just what Aramide Salako did. This exercise gave birth to Thoughts in Traffic: 243 Quickfire Notes to Aid Your Outlook on Self, Life and The Afterlife, which is a collage of thought notes. Some are brief, while others occupy several pages. The topics covered by the notes are wide, ranging from the mundane to the philosophical and the spiritual. There are several letters in the book, including those to the Nigerian Citizen, the World-Beater, others to the top CEOs on Linkedin, one to Elon Musk, one to readers, and even one to God.

Wouldn’t it be nice if one shared one’s thoughts on self, life, and the afterlife? Others could contemplate these thoughts to get a deeper understanding of self, life, and the afterlife in the same way that Aramide Salako shared his reflections in Thoughts in Traffic. I liked the conciseness of the thought notes, as one can read them quickly, think about them, and then move on to the next. In this book, there are many notes related to God and Christian teachings and I assume that Christianity had a major influence on the author's life. If you are interested in sharing the thoughts of Aramide Salako, this book is a good read.
