The 13th Commandment depicts the life and times of John Donovan, a second generation Irish descendant growing up in the Southwest oil fields of the USA, starting from prior to WW II to circa 2011. The book covers John's education and career, which spanned across several continents, and the economy. John is a chemical engineer and has included a very enlightening scientific section on the environment and global warming. Religion played an important role in John's life. The exposure to the 13th Commandment, plus God’s Ten and Jesus’ Two Commandments, was conflicting to John's (Earthling) natural instinct and demeanor.

The 13th Commandment is a history lesson that leads us through the oil fields of Oklahoma to the oil fields of West Africa, from Thomas Jefferson to Barak Hussein Obama, and from an explanation of the ice ages and to why man-made global warming is a farce. Interlaced and explained throughout John's life journey are the fundamental differences between the Judeo-Christian world and the Muslim world.
