    "People can say anything about me but none will accuse me of ever having been a hypocrite." - Tunku. Allahyarham Abdullah Ahmad was my favourite columnist in Sinar Harian before this. I read few of his books and this collection of Interview-Historical with Father of Malaysia is definitely a must read for all Malaysian.

    There are Tunku's views that I disagree with, and it is pertinent because however he decided then shaped and steer the nation towards the next direction. But, this book offers perspective and context to his thinking and decision-making process. Through the conversations, I placed myself in his shoes and tried to see things from his lenses. Hence why books such as this, of personal account and stories, are important. Personal anecdotes are not something that history textbook or newspapers archive There are Tunku's views that I disagree with, and it is pertinent because however he decided then shaped and steer the nation towards the next direction.

Hence why books such as this, of personal account and stories, are important. Personal anecdotes are not something that history textbook or newspapers archive offer. But they are important for future generations to understand why a certain decision was made at the material time. Personal stories provided context and an inside into the lens that that person used to view issues and resolve them. You may agree or disagree. A person's lense is a sum, cumulative of his views and prejudices, of what he had experienced.

    Important primary source for anyone interested in learning more about the formative years of Malaysia and the main visionaries behind this ambitious political project. It's rare and refreshing to find such candid comments from world leaders like Tunku Abdul Rahman. But what's even more noteworthy about this collection of interviews is that it represents the author's perspective of Malaysia's politics and society more than 30 years ago, untouched by three decades of national development, upheaval Important primary source for anyone interested in learning more about the formative years of Malaysia and the main visionaries behind this ambitious political project.

    I never fond of politicians or interested to read about them before. This is the first politic book that I read, and I am glad i have pick this book. Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj is really an interesting characters; humble, honest and full of principle. I learn to love and respect him not only for his title of bapa kemerdekaan Malaysia but also for his characteristic. Too bad that most of the character discuss in this book is foreign to me, as I am not really interested in Malaysia politics a I never fond of politicians or interested to read about them before.

Too bad that most of the character discuss in this book is foreign to me, as I am not really interested in Malaysia politics and I am not yet born when most of this happened. Still I found this book is such a good read and a glimpse to a brilliant mind of Tunku on how he handle the situations, his reason and his philosophy in creating the ideal Malaysia.

    An intriguing look into Malaysia's first prime minister. Tan Sri Abdullah Ahmad's access and familiarity with Tunku shows, and the book is overall a good read.
