What is it about?

This was emerging from Middle East especially GCC nations. We reviewed the above book and commented as follows: Our comment was that many Muslims today are more Arab than Arab themselves in their life styles including conduction businesses.

Why is it important?

This was important for potential business and corporate leaders looking forward to conduct business in Arab world.
