My Vision - Challenges in the Race for Excellence, a new book by UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, offers a detailed account of the vision that transformed Dubai and the UAE into international hubs for commerce and finance.
His Highness holds Dubai up as an example of extraordinary development based on excellent leadership, management, teamwork and timely decision-making.
The author, whose personal involvement in the process of development served as the basis for his work, also reflects on the current state of the Arab nation, which he describes as suffering from "a crisis of leadership and management".
Reviewers describe My Vision - Challenges in the Race for Excellence as one of the most important books to be published in the Middle East in the past 50 years.
The book is dedicated to UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The Arabic-language version of the book was launched in April 2006. This is the first English-language version.
