Reader Support – Young Turks of PETRONAS


Thanks to blog reader Ahmad Izwan, I have gotten hold of 3 sets consisting of hardcopy editions of “The Young Turks of PETRONAS” and “Hang Jebat di PETRONAS.” Disclaimer: I did purchase the books.

I would seriously suggest that you get your own copies. The book documents a personal account of the creation of PETRONAS. Maybe after you read it, then any criticisms of the Company is tempered by the challenges thrown at us by Shell and Esso while Malaysia was wrestling back control of its oil.

Thanks to Datuk Haji Ismail Hashim for deigning to autograph the book. Maybe I can get a photo and interview session in the near future…

Update 2013-09-01: I have found copies of the book to sell. Look at the sidebar, or contact me.

    I would strongly recommend this book. I am politically neutral, but as a Malaysian, we need to understand the historical backgrounds and the shit which the British created, and how our leaders help shaped the country.
