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! :flowers:

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:D I hope so..

Any news about the book.

Late May.;) Which means it should have come out by now. I'm very interested in reading this book.

asturiana 05-28-2010 01:18 PM

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.

This title will be released on February 22, 2011.

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!

Is there much about their family life?

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 bought my copy from Amazon !!! Love it !!! :)

Veram98 03-06-2011 05:23 PM

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”.
