More New Comments on My Writings!

 A         FROM MOROCCO

 Dear Dr Majid Al Suleimany

 I am very glad to write to you after I got interested in your contributions in the field of management .I  would be very grateful to if you could help me getting your interesting book entitled  Psychology of Arab Management Thinking!

I have looked for it your amazing books here in Morocco , but in vain , I found that it is not available .So , I decided writing to you on the hope that you can give me a help to get it .I appreciate too much to read it , and I will be too grateful to you .I can in return provide you with Moroccan books if you have any interest in them .    

 I am looking forward to hearing from you soon. 

With respects – HC (Moroccan Lady)

B         TO THE BANK

 The book is now gaining momentum and popularity all over the world. She is in Morocco. I have only 2 books left with me and after giving WHSmith new bookshop at The Wave my last 5 copies as sold out in Oman in Family and Borders too.

 At a recent conference in Oman A Cry For Help! book was used as a Reference Book on problems in Oman in HR and Management. Books business are slow and tedious. This was told by me too by Dr. David Weir – famous Management Guru.

 Incidentally he too is writing a Management book on Arab Management compared to the rest of the world. You maybe interested to note both my two Management books are highly quoted and referenced in his coming book – as FEW books in Management have been written in English by The Arabs themselves.

 Now in Oman they are talking of how great a poet one was After he had died. Could be my story too.

 Not that it will make any difference to anyone – as business is business.

 Best Regards,

 Majid Al Suleimany

 3          Dear Majid,

 I would be very pleased to read your interesting book. Your books should be part and parcel of the curriculum of at least Arab Universities. But Arabs appreciate what is written by foreigners.

 If your name is Richard Pettinger; surely they will talk about you.

 Your books are hard hitting because the Arab reality is such a real disaster.

 3     To The Editor –

 Majed Al Sulaimani Writer Omani-

 Asalaaam Aleikum & After Compliments;

 I think this is his best article yet and shows the type and character of the person. It is so sad and unfortunate we the country do not appreciate the talents here and maybe Allah is punishing us because we have become so bad and not appreciate we have and bad hearts us all we have inside us.

 This poor man is crying and no one care about him. I think Allah will punish us all more soon by us bad hard hearts to our own people I think.

 God save us Amin

 4     Dear Majid,

I’m really glad you e-mailed me, of course I know who you are, I’ve read Between Us Only (the book) and I quiet liked it. Thanks for the sites, it’d help me to review your books in the future inshAllah.

I sincerely hope you’d also contribute to Omani Book Mania by reviewing the books you’ve read (it could be of any genre) and stating why you’d highly recommend it. I might even sending some questions your way as an exclusive interview with an Omani writer if you’d agree that is.

A Final Say On My Books!

Between Us Only!

 A Final Say On My Books!

 Or Good Men Need To Do Something Now Before It Is Too Late For Everyone!

This is something that I have always said before and particularly in my columns here and in my last book A Cry For Help! See also www.betweenusonly.com

When good, forthcoming and courageous people do decide to go silent then it is like a cinder fire that will continue to burn down underneath quietly and to erupt into a bigger uncontrollable fire – and most likely at least unexpected and inopportune times! I am hoping and praying within me that we have not reached that stage yet – and communication lines are still open!

In my book A Cry For Help! I had talked about some FEW misbehaving expatriates – and this is what had been said –  (1) A frank, honest, open and call-a-spade-a-spade no punch-spared, no barrels held stuff and no frills play book exposing the increasing lack of ethics, principles, professionalism and tolerance – plus increased radicalisation, extremism and fundamentalising of the Offices environment and in similar to the overall similar fast changing facts of the ground in the region- October 4, 2009.

 (2) The Author hastens to add – That not all expatriate  managers are to blame. “Most of them are impartial. But there is a tiny section that have a low opinion about locals and recruits. Though they are few in number, the damage they cause is tremendous!” (And has been done already!) 

Remember the book was written in 2009.

Yesterday Tuesday I got a similar call from this time another Bookshop (see below) selling my books – the same I said before of another bookshop before in my book.

Seems nothing has changed much – despite everything that is going around in our country now and in our neighbours – and in the Arab World too.

I had said in  - D.01.01          The Rather Most Annoying And Abrupt Bookshop Indian Assistant Response To The Author.

 I had sent a chaser to one of the Bookshops selling my books in the three bookshops here in Oman, to see if any books were sold – and if sold – how many?

 After starting politely with a Sir – he (Indian Expatriate) went on to say – There has been no sale so far (after only a month) and if this situation will continue, we will definitely remove your books from our shelves and stock other books instead.

 So I replied to him – I – as a Local Omani citizen and writer of books in English and two in Arab Management – am devastated and completely disappointed in your response. After a month only – you have already decided to stop supporting us Omanis in local talents, innovation, entrepreneurship and human resources development in this country. How many local Authors you know that write in English?

The ironical and sad part was that they were not that cooperative in displaying and in promoting the books – and there were some small sales from determined buyers. However, when it came to payments to me it was a slow and painful process too!

 Yet still the bookshops are fully stacked of foreign Authors that may not be selling either. So why target us only Omani Authors? Because we speak THE TRUTH you do not want to hear and support?

 With very few exceptions (like this esteemed newspaper and one local family run bookshop), no one is supporting us The Omani Authors – especially if you write out on The Painful Truth – and not drawings, art, cookbooks – and of course butterflies, animals and castles in Oman. These ‘foreign bookshops’ and their local partners even advertise on behalf of foreign authors!

  I think it is high time for me to clam up now finally – and let things just take their own natural course. My head already hurts in banging it against brick walls and people that have decided just not to hear me – as in my book – A Cry For Help!

 Take Care!
