3 Nov 2020

The memoirs on the long and inspiring journey of Maqbool Hameed al Saleh, a prominent corporate leader in Oman, will be released on November 7. 

Titled A Long Walk – Memories of life, the book authored by Maqbool Hameed al Saleh with Dr Masooma al Saleh, presents a personal account of the former’s inspiring journey from humble beginnings to success, recounting a multitude of interesting experiences and defining moments that shaped his life through this long journey. 

H E Sayyid Badr bin Hamad bin Hamood al Busaidi, Foreign Minister, will release the book on Majlis al Khonji, an online platform that brings together Oman’s leading business personalities.

Speaking on the upcoming release of the book, Saleh said, “I am deeply honoured and grateful to have my memoirs released by H E Sayyid Badr coinciding with the commemoration of Oman’s 50th National Day, a time of great pride and joy for all Omanis. I am excited and humbled at the thought of sharing my memoirs with my family, friends, the community and the people of this great country. I believe that memories and stories that we have lived serve as powerful emotions that can inspire generations of our people to come, and I intend to ensure that all our efforts and experiences bring out the spirit of our endeavours and drive our progress.”

A Long Walk – Memories of life, provides a rich and engaging account of Saleh’s life and times over seven decades – the modest beginnings in Muttrah in 1945, a vivid portrait of growing up in challenging times in a closely-knit society, moving through changing and progressive times with the advent of Oman’s modern renaissance in 1970 and the constant pursuit of excellence through to this day. 

The memoirs cover Saleh’s experiences with various people, places, travels, food and cultures; reminiscing family, successes, failures, passion and adventures.

A remarkable life, a story rooted in many different worlds, A Long Walk – Memories of life offers deep insights into Saleh’s energetic personality, hard work, commitment, discipline and success against all odds. Saleh also shares with the reader his deep love and devotion to Oman, and his vision for the continued progress and prosperity of the people and the nation, underlining the need for honesty, integrity and hard work to achieve dreams and aspirations.
