King Abdullah II: "Our Last Best Chance:The Pursuit of Peace in a Time of Peril" 2010


May 2010
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."
Cant wait to read it ...

I liked the article, although I found its message quite messianic. I'm against this kind of theories, but I recognize King Abdullah's significant role in international affairs. It was an interesting read anyway. I'm looking forward to buying that book, BTW!

He seems to be a decent man, with modern and cogent thoughts, caught in a mess created long before him and perpetuated by those who long for extreme positions. Good luck.

It could be interesting book, but I probably won't have chance to read it. There are not many books about/by royals translated in czech and the possibility to buy english version isn't also very good... But who knows, maybe they will translate it I hope so..

Thank you.
I looked at amazon and I read 31 december 2025. So I thought there isn't yet a date. I also like to read the book.

A memoir by Jordan's King Abdullah II is coming out as scheduled, despite the anti-government uprisings in his country and elsewhere in the Middle East.

King Abdullah's book released!

King Abdullah's book "Our Last Best Chance" was released in the US yesterday. It's a great read, especially the part about the Royal Wedding, where he describes courting Rania. A real love story!

King Abdullah's Book - family life

There's a really nice description of the courtship and wedding, as well as some descriptions of the young princes, and some cute photos!

Here's a review from the Wall Street Journal:

I really liked reading the book, including its last sentence:

“God has given me many blessings. But the greatest of all is to be husband to Rania and father to our children Hussein, Iman, Salma and Hashem. They are the lights of my life”.
