This is an interesting read, the fact that this is penned by one of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum's closest aides during the period of meteoric development (2000-2010) in Dubai, presents an interesting insight to how the city became what it is today.
While there is no doubt what Dubai as a city has achieved in such a short span of time is a testament to the vision and perseverance of the Sheikh, the kindness of Emiratis and the efforts of millions of expats, there have been challenges, the road has not always been smooth.
I particularly enjoyed reading Chapter 3 (ACTION TRUMPS EVERYTHING) a chapter that's about relentlessness and perseverance at the same time, Chapter 4 (NEVER BELIEVE YOUR WORK IS COMPLETE) this chapter talks about why Dubai has sustained it's growth by innovating and challenging the status quo.
Overall, whether you are a resident or a non-resident, this book provides invaluable insight into the mind of a great leader who has transformed the image of the Middle East by putting Dubai on the global map.
