Although I had the privilege to be trained and work under the supervision of Mr Chang and adding to that the privilege of reviewing his book Arabic quotations, my opinion about his book (Scalpel in the Sand) doesn't not carry any bias whatsoever. As a personality, Mr Chang is very successful model for not only surgeons but also any medical and non-medical professional. His personal characteristics (honesty, strictness, directness, unwavering justice, commitment and consistency) makes the book a real addition to the human library. While I learnt a lot from Mr Chang in my practical life with him, I learnt even more after reading his book as a human being seeking good values and understanding others in addition to professional maturation roadmaps. I would suggest that every Medical and non-medical institutes' library should have this book available on its shelves as well as electronically available. This book offer a unique opportunity to know in a very independent and impartial view about Saudi Arabia professional and social life and offer a rare valuable and currently unavailable opportunity to clarify the myth and misunderstanding in the west about this part of the world.
