His father published his (first) memoirs when he was only 26 years old.

Penguin Group (USA) will release a memoir in 2010 by Jordan's King Abdullah II. The book is called "The Last Best Chance: An Intimate Account of the Pursuit of Peace in a Time of Peril." In a statement Monday, Penguin called the book a "personal narrative rich with human drama" by "an active participant in major events."

Yes but to be fair, Hussein had been King for 8 years by then, survived assassination attempts, seen his grandfather murdered in front of him, the 1948 arab israeli war, had to deal with his father's mental health problems, been married twice, seen the British mandate of Jordan end, the Suez crisis and was living through extremely turbulent times. Abdullah has had nothing like the problems his father had. His father's steel was forged in the hottest fire which is why he was a great king. Abdullah is not the man his father was and his personal life and reign haven't seen the immense challenges in 10 years that his father had in his first decade.

26 was nevertheless a bit young for publishing "memoirs" (and at this stage King Hussein had still to mature a lot to become the great king he was at the end). Concerning his son's upcoming book, it's to early to review it (before knowing more about its contents).

I was just pointing out that by age 26 and within 8 years of his reign, King Hussein had already had a lifetime's worth of experience crammed into a very short space of time. In fact in the first 10 years of his reign, he had more to deal with in those years than alot of leaders have in a lifetime.

Thanks for the photos. I like the fact that the new tourism project is intended to be eco-friendly. It's good to see Jordan pursuing projects with such a positive message.
