This book is packed with ideas for governance, leadership and life from the man behind the city that's home to the world's tallest tower, largest mall and two million people from 220 nationalities - backed by the world's busiest airport and the biggest man made seaport on earth.

Available for the first time in an updated and refreshed pocket edition, Sheikh Mohammed shares the many important ideas which not only sit at the heart of his vision for his nation but are also central to the well being of society and personal happiness.
