My life our times by Gordon Brown
This good is fluently written and I can feel Gordon's passionate as a father, a husband and politician.
He grew up in Scotland as the son of a Presbyterian minster.
He was served longest-serving Chancellor and has battled for tax reform against poverty. He also shared his personal affirmation with NHS. NHS staff saved him from near loss eyesight as a student and went through tough time with him when he and his wife Sarah were facing the death of their new born daughters, Jennifer Jane.
In his political time as Chancellor, he had been through the invasions of Iraq to tragedy of Afghanistan.
I loved his idea about equality. Its about the opportunity to realise your full potential.
I loved his honesty and straight forward approach. In the book he reflected the New Labour's successes, his frustration on his long wait to become prime minister, and his failures in power. He described his losing in prime minister due to “I fell short in communicating my ideas." This is one of a good lessons learn for all leaders.
This blog is for me to put some thoughts on the books I have been reading recently
