Saving the World From Self:
Or Should I Say Selfishness is a an invitation to intimately
converse about the many-colored shades of human nature.
Unnoticing, the reader will share a vision focused from a
collective self that blurs nonessential differences and rises to
a transcending good, to equality in God’s love. This touching
dialogue permutes the very terrestrial and colloquial with the
heavenly. In all honesty, Regman sits on the edge of eternity
and fuses with its flow while offering the reader a thoughtful
poetic meditation that tells of a very personal renewal.
Saving the World From the
Self… is also distinctive because it reveals the plasticity
of language in a very special way; in verses that are notorious
for their internal cadence, the hidden hues of words lie bare
under Regman’s fresh light.

Biographical note from the author:
"With all the mistakes
I've made so far in life,
I won't embarrass the
institutions I've attended.
Although school is so
education fundamental to
any civilized society,
life has a way of
teaching what’s not
learned in school.
I think those lessons
are so much more
I think what’s really
important is by our application
of what was learned"
