It reveals the emergence of the man and the state.

The book narrates in the words of Sheikh Sultan, the early journey of the UAE’s formation, the course of events that unfolded and resolutions that were taken from his point of view when he participated in the journey spearheaded by a wise man, the late founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan.

His Highness hoped the book would help in the transfer of knowledge about the UAE’s pioneering experiments and thoughts of understanding, harmony and collective national work that could help the world overcome the obstacles it faces in its progress.
