The book is really interesting specially the few stories I didn’t know and he is accurate in his info and from the words he used he 100% knows the culture very well.
King Hussein was very special , until this day people remember him on his birthday and on the anniversary of the day he passed away . we love him dearly and it’s very genuine . i was listening to a journalist who is considered an opposition member and he is not allowed in any Arab country nor his paper , because he is highly critical of all of the leadership in the Middle East . however he even admits that the love the people carry for King Hussein and the Hashemite family is something special , I compare King Hussein to a CEO who started a country instead of a company , I lived 21 years. In Jordan and I remember the day he passed away we felt we lost our dad not just king in 2011 I was moving homes and locked my storage so I called a lock smith and the guy as soon as he saw me he asked were r u from ? and I knew he is from Israel from the accent .As soon as I said I’m from Jordan the guy hugged me and told me how much he loved King Hussein . I was speechless the guy gave me a hug and the first word was King Hussein , to help understand this I remembered an incident King Hussein leadership and courage made a huge difference , when a Jordanian soldier shoot Israeli civilians King Hussein went to each home apologized and gave his condolences one of the people who lost a child named the baby girl she delivered after that incident Jordan because of King Hussein and sure enough when we talked this incident was the main reason that guy loved him and respected him .
