*

This is the true life story of "Jokowi" told in attractive graphic novel form. Rising from boyhood poverty in an urban kampung to adult success as a furniture exporter, Jokowi then entered politics during reformasi as a refereshingly honest candidate. His ascent has been meteoric: from mayor to governor to president - in less than 10 years! Filled with personal anecdotes, this charmingly illustrated book reveals the exemplary character of the first Indonesian to be elected president as an "outsider" to the traditional power and money elite.
