Blog ini membicarakan soal buku, bahasa dan dunia penerbitan secara khusus. Ini sebagai dedikasi kecintaan saya terhadap buku dan ilmu. Semoga bermanfaat untuk semua. Dalam masa yang sama ia juga merangkumi kembara kerjaya dan persoalan kehidupan.

I come across two non-fiction books that worth to mention here; Dari Beirut ke Jerusalem (From Beirut to Jerusalem) and Blind Spot. Dari Beirut ke Jerusalem is the Malay version of the From Beirut to Jerusalem book that already in the market for quite sometime. The former book’s author is Dr. Ang Swee Chai and the latter is by Dr. Dzulkifli Ahmad.

I had seen From Beirut to Jerusalem book in the bookstores as well as during book exhibition for several times, but never have second thought to buy it. However, I feel interested to have it in Bahasa Melayu version; in addition the price is only RM28 for 400 plus pages book (Already bought it & read now).

This is the story of Dr Ang Swee Chai, a Penang-born orthopaedic surgeon, and her flight to war-torn Lebanon in 1982 to treat the wounded and dying. This new edition, twenty years after the Zionist terrorism in Shabra and Shatila which killed thousands of Palestinian civilians, is a tribute to the ongoing struggle against Zionist occupation in the Holy Lands.

The Blind Spot is about the Malaysia’s Islamic state debate, new economic policy and other national pressing issues that peoples need to know from the second source, rather than only rely on the information from the government. The price of this book is RM25 for 232 pages.

Ya sdr Sabiah, kisah benar. Saya baru baca sikit, pun sudah menusuk kalbu. InsyaAllah, banyak pengajaran yang dipaparkan di dalamnya.
