That's a sweet line. King Abdullah has always struck me as someone who is devoted to his wife and children.
The book sounds like an interesting read. Is it all politics or does he have some anecdotes in it about his private life?

It's not only politics, it's an autobiography, you can also find some anecdotes, a chapter about his marriage, and you come to know something about his relationship to his father (especially in his father's last months) and his time as a young serving army officer.
He mentions that his relationship to QNoor is rather frosty (since he appointed Rania Queen).

Thanks. Interesting bit there about Queen Noor. I watched an interview with Randa Habib recently and she mentions that Noor was very disappointed when the late King Hussein appointed Abdullah CP (she was actually crying and saying something like "but you promised me Hamzah will be CP") so I'm not surprised about the frosty relationship.
I'll try to find the book at our local bookstore.
