Dubai Book Review

Top Books on Dubai & Other Cool Souvenirs

Hi, this is Sunil with my Dubai book review...

This is a short list of my strongly recommended books on Dubai.

I have been studying Dubai and its transformation since 1999 and have found these to be the best and most comprehensive resources published on Dubai.

If you are like me and like to travel light, consider the new Kindle reading device.

I travel almost all year-round and don’t like to carry much on me except for my laptop and “crackberry” (Blackberry). So recently I went out and got myself the Kindle and have loved the experience so far.

It is like packing the entire public library in 10.3 ounces. It’s truly a gift for someone who enjoys reading a lot in their spare time. I definitely recommend the product.

Also, click here if you want some cool Dubai souvenirs for keepsakes.

Here is a list of the best of the best resources on Dubai from my experience. Click on each one to read my review.

Of all these I most recommend the 60 minute DVD interview of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and All Things Dubai for a full taste of what Dubai is all about, where it stands and where it is headed.

I have also developed my own rating system and have given each of the books I’ve rated between 1-3 stars depending on how much I liked them. I have not read or seen the ones with no ratings.
