The Golden Warisan Volume 2

For those keeping track of the publication of my book 'The Golden Warisan Brunei Darussalam Volume 2' will be pleased to know that the book will be available from Monday. I have an advance few copies which I will make available for sale to people who has time to drop in to my office starting from this morning. The book is 1/3 thicker than last time and the price is unfortunately too $15 instead of last book's $12. It is thicker and has more information but I do have to pay more for the printing of the book. So I do hope you will bear with me.

This book has two extra articles which I wrote much earlier which is My Take, a short article which served as an introductory article to the Golden Legacy column and another short article which I wrote for Muhibah magazine. To make amends for the omission last time, I have also included the bibliography of books which I used as references.

FREE BOOKS. For my previous book, I gave them away to school teachers. This time round, I am giving books away to history students. I am giving away one book to any history student and no more than two students per school. So email me with your full name, your form, your school and the name of your school history teacher. I have 50 books to give away. I won't give my email but if you have been keeping up with this blog, you will know what the email is. I will not accept any other means of communicating your name, and the sequence of receiving emails will be determined by the way it is arranged by yahoo mail. I can't be any more fairer than that.

Hi Mr BR,

I added your book to Open Library here:

I haven't finished adding the information and obviously as this is your book, you might be interested in adding some details yourself. :) But even if you're not, I thought you'd be interested to know.
