Review:

'...an astute and thorough new biography...' The Economist

...it reads like a thriller...this is a book about Malaysia that must be read.' The Jakarta Post

'Mr. Wain's book is biography at its best.' The Wall Street Journal

'...a masterful biography...Malaysian Maverick is both meticulous and magisterial. This is journalism of the highest order.' Lowy Institute for International Policy

'Barry Wain's Malaysian Maverick will, for a long time to come, be the best companion for a painful national soul-searching for Malaysia...Wain spent two-and-a-half years painstakingly putting together this revealing book...For those who want a peek into the rollercoaster years under Dr. Mahathir and at the same time search for a different future for Malaysia, this is an indispensable guide.' - Malaysiana
