The book is written in an interesting manner and thus easy to read. Chapter 1 named “This mysterious word “diplomat”” starts with the author’s memories about studying in our gymnasia, which at that time had the status of the Lenin School #1. He remembers the years here with the warmth in his heart and even displays the pictures of the then alumni on the pages of the book.

Today, V. D. Khandogiy, being the president of the civil organization “Ukrainian Association of External Politics”, gladly meets and communicates with gymnasia educators and learners, as well as participates in many of our festivities.
