By his unyielding determination and principle, Shimon Peres time and again helped guide his beloved country through the crucible of mortal challenge. But it was by his innate humanity, his decency, that Shimon inspired the world over and helped pave a path to peace broad enough that future generations will walk it one day, side-by side
Shimon Peres started life as Israel's brightest student, became one of its best teachers, and ended up its biggest dreamer. In his final book, completed just weeks before his death, Peres reflects upon his seventy years in politics and the defining moments in Israel's history that laid the foundation for a future of peace and possibility. This book captures my friend's lifelong belief in our potential to rise above our wounds, our resentments and our fears to make the most of today and claim the promise of tomorrow
Shimon Peres was a giant of Israel's founding generation, a tireless advocate for peace, and an eternal optimist who lived his life with a sense of hope and possibility. He also became a treasured friend to me and source of wisdom for me. All of us have much to learn from his story, which now belongs to the ages
Israel has made a tremendous contribution to global technological innovation, and its moniker of 'start-up nation' is well earned. But the leadership lessons in this book show why Shimon Peres was, in so many endeavors, able to glimpse opportunity when others predicted failure. If you don't try, you don't know- that's the secret of innovation. Shimon Peres understood that
Shimon Peres, one of the great leaders of Israel for more than half a century, was an unusual statesman: a combination of a dreamer and a pragmatist, a thinker and a doer, a fearless campaigner for peace and compromise and a tireless builder of Israel's armed forces. He was also a unique storyteller. This book is a special treat for any reader who is excited by history, by politics, by Israel in the Middle East, by changing realities and by amazing dreams and visions
The true secret to success, no matter how difficult things seem, is to face challenges with gratitude and forgiveness. That's how President Shimon Peres became a transformational global leader. Reflecting on his life, he provides not only a gripping story but a hands-on guide to creative thinking and courageous decision making
Shimon Peres was a visionary optimist to his dying day, and his last words of hope were addressed to the young. For all our sakes, let them be heard!
A personal account of the shaping of modern Israel by Shimon Peres, former Prime Minister (1985-1986, 1995-1996) and President (2007-2014).See all Product description

• His strong belief and love of the State of Israel – This is the foundation and rock of his entire belief system and has driven him to all his achievements
• His amazing skill and ability to dream big and then work really hard to put those dreams into reality. Examples from his books abound:
o His drive to get weapons from Czechoslovakia when no other country would sell arms to Israel immediately after Independence and when threatened by hostile Arab neighbors. This in spite of him being very young at that time and him knowing nothing about the arms industry
o His vision and hard work to set up an Airline company in Israel amidst the growth pangs of newly independent nation when there was widespread opposition to such investments. This however in the long run played an important role in development of the Airforce in Israel which was so pivotal in defending Israel in subsequent wars
o Development of the nuclear reactor in the Negev desert which acted as a massive deterrent to Israel’s enemies
o His strong belief and push for the Hostage rescue plan as part of “Operation Yonathan” – The rescue at Entebbe and many more
The other thing that stood out was his ability to work very hard in the realization of his dreams. He gives an example wherein just after concluding a peace deal with Palestinians in USA and returning to Israel at 4AM – He asks his team to assemble at 7AM to start working on a peace deal with the Jordanians.
All in all this is a good and very inspiring read which highlights the story of Israel and the story of an extra ordinary man.

And thoughts result in action.

No room for small dreams, courage, imagination and the making of modern Israel, is the autobiography of Shimon Peres, and he was the former, President, Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, and also one of the founding fathers of the state of Israel.
And before I write anything about this book, I wanna tell you one thing for sure, that if you are a pessimistic human, then after reading this book, you can feel the positive energy of optimism, and also the power of imagination, which is a prerequisite for creative thinking.
Shimon Peres was born in a Jewish town in Poland, but when he was 11-years old, he immigrated to the land of Israel, along with his family. Though his paternal grandfather and other closed family members was burned to death by the anti-Semitic forces of that time.
After setting his foot on the land of his forefathers, he came in contact with David Ben-Gurion (The First Prime Minister of Israel), and the latter recognized the talent of young Shimon. Infact he gained the confidence of his mentor, because of his, honesty, perseverance and creative thinking.
And because of his determination, and clear vision for a peaceful and stable Israel, he laid the foundation for, the civil aviation sector, the nuclear sector, and he also gave fillip to the start-up industries in Israel, and because of his clarity in thoughts, regarding the use of technology, today Israel is one of the leading countries in technological innovation, farming, nano-technology, aviation, arms and ammunition, and also in space and cyber security.
And when he won the Noble Peace prize in the 1994, for the peace agreement between the Government of Israel and the Palestinian liberation Organization (PLO), it was because of his strong belief in the power of optimism and Peace.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and the language of the book is so easy to be read, and I strongly recommend to readers that you can surely go for this wonderful Book.
