KUALA LUMPUR: A 100-over page book titled â€˜Banking on Change â€“ The story of Nazir Razakâ€™ is scheduled to hit local bookstores after Hari Raya.
The book provides an insight into the life of the prominent banker and entails the changes and reforms he has in mind for the betterment of the country.
Undertaken as an independent venture, the book is authored by former journalist T.L Ben.
Nazir, 49, the younger brother of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak, has been vocal on various issues affecting the country.
He has also proposed a few initiatives such as the setting up of the National Consultative Council (NCC) to chart new directions for the nation.
â€œA lot of things said by Nazir in the public domain were absolutely sensible in the context of nation-building and forging stronger ties amongst the multi-ethnic population,â€ says the author.
â€œAnd being a reputable banker, Nazir has some definitive ideas on how to strengthen the economy and manage the country more efficiently.
â€œBut Nazir has made it clear that he wishes not to dabble in politics. He is only concerned for a better Malaysia,â€ the author said.
â€œPolicy makers and those in power can most certainly take some pointers from this book on Nazir,â€ he said, adding that it was this reason that prompted him to pen the book.
The price of the book has yet to be determined. A couple of publishing houses both local and foreign have expressed interest to distribute the book.
