“The purpose of this book is to depict Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak as the natural successor of Tun Abdul Razak Hussein in terms of the son extending the legacy of his father […]”, writes Ismail Noor in his Najib Razak: A Sense of Mission (p. xxi). Information, Communications and Culture Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim contributed the foreword. The book, at 186 pages, spans 33 years of public life - at both state and federal level - of Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib, the current Prime Minister of Malaysia, and highlights his roles as leader, administrator, manager and politician.

Each of the book’s ten chapters - illustrated with photographs - highlights a particular stage of the Prime Minister’s career. Recollections of the past mingle with glimpses of the present. The chapters conclude with a wise saying by a sage from a different civilisation, reflecting Malaysia’s multi-cultural makeup. The book contains an extensive bibliography and index.
