This truly is remarkable. A little Chinese boy from Kuala Lumpur, in the fifties attended a Catholic School. In the sixties, studied in a university in London and became a surgeon. However he could not find a job in London, and in 1979 landed a job in Saudi Arabia, as a surgeon. Turned out that this was the best thing to have happened, as he was thrust into an environment where everything was possible. This is his story of his 10 years as a surgeon in the Riyadh Military Hospital.
And what do we know about the Saudis? This is a good place to start. You will be surprised.
Do not miss the chapter on Idiosyncrasies and Oddities. It has some revealingly funny anecdotes. Who do you think was the greatest tourist agent ever? Find out in this chapter.
Those of us who are thinking of a job overseas, this book is definitely required reading.
