I never thought I would buy this type of book but..

got to make an exception for this one of a kind outstanding leader.  I feel so grown up just talking about his new book. First of all Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad looks great at the cover of the book. He looks more younger and relax.

A Doctor in the House – the Memoirs of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“ In his 22 years as Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad transformed his country from an agricultural backwater into an industrial powerhouse that would become the 17th largest trading nation in the world.
This remarkable achievement was not without controversy, and Dr Mahathir’s extraordinary vision and iron grip earned him both enemies as well as ardent admirers within and outside Malaysia. He has been described – typically and paradoxically – as a tyrannical dictator, a bete noir, as well as an inspiring, courageous and outspoken defender of the downtrodden, the Third World, and moderate Islam.
At almost every turn Dr Mahathir rewrote the rules. This autobiography reveals the workings of that extraordinary mind, which was witnessed every major development in Malaysian history from the Second World War and the MacMichael Treaties to independence, industrialisation and the making of modern Malaysia, culminating in the political and financial crises of the late 1990’ss and the challenges of the new millennium.”  except from the front flap of the book.

This is such a thick book. I don’t know how long I will take to finish this book – 809 pages people. Wow!

For the first two pages I am totally hook. He really takes me with him and experience first hand what it was like to be the leader of Malaysia. Wish me luck!
