Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad launched his much awaited memoir at Mid Valley Mega Mall at 330pm in a simple ceremony. He did not give any speech but instead took questions from the floor, of invitees which include the media.

“I am a doctor and always a doctor. I did not have any training in economics, finance or administration. But when you have to attend to the nation’s ills, its like a doctor’s job”.

His message is very clear. “I am a common man. Any common man could do what I did. We just need to strive our best”.

There would be some critics and worse of all, haters after this memoir hits the shelves. However, majority of Malaysians still openly willing to demonstrate their respect if not love for him, in the open despite that he has left the office of the Prime Minister seven and a half years ago.

The sort of audience and response that he gets whenever he speaks attracted very encouraging attendance. His blog is by-far attracts 1 million hits every 15 days. So far today alone, MPH already sold 5,000 copies of the memoir and reported to be sold out. It is expected that the book would be very popular to the majority.

In short, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is very inspirational to many Malaysians. He is also popular all over the world.
