"If I scrutinize what is really important to me, or what I was actually seeking, it was freedom.
Money may facilitate it, but it cannot buy it. You have to earn your freedom yourself." In January 1998, Amer decided to visit a prostitute.
To his shock, there were five anti-narcotics agents waiting for him.
With a history of drugs and sex, he faced a long prison term, and a complete loss of all freedom.
Ten years later, he was one of the ten thousand richest men on the planet.
Then, he lost it all. One Life is the story of an incredible journey, from the gutter to the stars, from swinging London to not so swinging Dubai.
But it I not just the story of a man, it is the story of his soul, and the story of a search for freedom that can only be found inside.
In the form of a confession Amer explores himself and the worlds he has inhabited, his triumphs and his tragedies, and offers the reader a glimpse into a world that is both unfamiliar and familiar.
Profound yet conversational, every reader will come out with a thirst for exploration, and a thirst for life.
Part memoir, part business book, part self-help book, Amer's One Life may not have all the answers, but it raises some of the most important questions every person must answer - 'Who Am I?', 'Where Did I Come From?' and 'Where Will I Go?' - and helps guide the reader on their own path to freedom.
