the most touching of all is of course the Pak Harto one. i read another book that tells anything about his bad regime--and i think it's been a talk in this country as well--and now to have him described by his closest people and read about another side of him was kinda nice. i agree with some people in this book that said "we all remember him when he went down in 1998, but we forgot that despite all his judgement he also helped to unify this country as one and helped it grow from a coloniliezed country into a growing country. we also forgot how strong our country was when he sat on the throne, no one wanted to mess with Indonesia at that time, because they all scared of him."
