"I dedicate the book to the memory of Martin McGuinness and I dedicate the book to his wife Bernie McGuinness," said Mr. Adams.

As one would expect, the book deals with many serious issues however there are moments of humour and laughter too.

"There is, I like to think, some humorous pieces, some personal pieces and things that happen in everyday life.

"For those who are familiar with my writings I hope it gives them a wee bit of joy and a wee bit of distraction," said Mr. Adams.
