Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Project Egypt:A Politically Incorrect View (Kindle Edition)
Much of this book is an accurate portrayal of events Mr. Pat and I observed during the construction of a small building in Egypt from August 10986 through March 1988.
We also worked together in Botswana from April 1992 through September 1993 and the adventure was as interesting and even more wild there than Cairo.
In the book I am writing, Knockin' On Satan's Door - adventures of an expat during a quarter century in Arafat's Palestine, Mubarak's Egypt and Qaddafi's Libya, you will see a different perspective, perhaps, but you will benefit by first reading Mr. Pat's rollicking narrative.
Pat was the one person I worked for who most epitomized leadership on a wavelength akin to Steve Jobs. If the man phoned me tomorrow and said, "Andy, I'm going to start a refrigerator manufacturing business in Nome, Alaska, are you willing to join me?"
I'd tell him I already bought my airline ticket.
No person I ever worked for ever got me to accomplish the impossible, except Pat. This book is one good insight not only into Egypt, but into the insight of a man whom I then felt came closest to the likes of Howard Hughes or H. Ross Perot.
Project Egypt and Mr. Pat: Eccentric, yes. Great, you bet - C. William Anderson, the liberal half of the team.
