General Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Mohd Asghar Khan bin Goriman Khan RMAF – current Chief of the RMAF
“Tan Sri Abdul Ghani bin Tan Sri Abdul Aziz’s autobiography is a comprehensive account of his life and his aspiration in the Royal Malaysian Air Force. I find the book very readable and not at all wearisome, despite its length. It is enlightening to me as I had similar experiences in the Air Force but from a different perspective.
From various episodes in the book I find him to be open-minded and not ostentatious; upright but not arrogant. What amazes me most is his tenacity to make the most out of whatever predicament he got into. Whenever he was down, his mind appeared to be at rest but did not remain static. At the first change of circumstance, he would spring back with renewed vigour.
This book could be useful as a reading material for aspiring officers in the air force in the pursuit of their careers, especially those aspiring to be air force pilots. It is a source of inspiration to individuals who strive for self-improvement.
