Why is Dr. Mahathir Mohamad a visionary? Simple, unlike many people, he has the ability to see the Big Picture. He can paint a picture but he is not an artist; he can anticipate trends and the opportunities embedded in such trends but he is not a clairvoyant. His thoughts have no limits and he does not believe in the impossible.
His is a "can-do" attitude where the unreachable is reachable. As a visionary, he can see with his eyes closed. Unlike some people who go through the days of their lives with glorious dreams and never having the guts to act on such dreams and make them happen, he is the opposite.
He had the guts to stand up for what he believed in and was kicked out of the political party he loved for thinking the unthinkable - a developed and prosperous Malaysia. He had the guts to make a comeback and put into practice his vision. The result is what we see today: a modern day Malaysia. This book is a testimony to such a vision. Would he face criticism at home and abroad for such a vision? Definitely. Would he make mistakes? Yes, he will, but neither would dampen his enthusiasm.
