The events are outlined in fair details for public consumption to the best extent possible and this was made possible through this book and in the capacity as the Chief presidential spokesman of Wimar Witoelar, the author.
Wimar shares many of his personal beliefs and principles related to the unfolding events throughout the chapters. The tracking of events do provide an excellent balance of the issues that most Indonesians would hear on single-sided basis through the press. Many of the aspects of his opinions and beliefs are shared by specific group of his fellow countrymen who share the strong belief and hope of good performing, people oriented and transparent governance and contributed to the advancement of those beliefs and hopes through their professional lives.
Despite of my late purchase given the release date of the book, I do enjoy the writing styles and overall presentation, as I have always enjoyed Wimar's writing skills. I would recommend the book and would like to iterate the reader-to-be to engage in a wonderful experience that takes you to the situation behind the magnificent gesture of the Presidential Palace. A place which I would not think nor plan to enter as an ordinary Indonesian, but a place which resembles my great respect and honor to my own country having known that the 2 respectable 'Orang Biasa', Wimar and Gus Dur, who are extraordinary have served there.
