”I applaud Anas for his intellectual discipline to pursue writing which demands mental toughness, tenacity and absolute patience. Indeed, he deserves our admiration and respect. The author deserves my commendation for a task well done. I must admit that I have more than just a passing interest in it. I am always interested in writings on the subject of energy, be they articles for lay reading or academic treatises. Secondly, having been once the Minister of Finance, I follow socio-economic development keenly and of course, national policies on such subjects as education interest me greatly.” - Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, Founding Chairman/CEO of PETRONAS, Former Minister of Finance
