Two particularly poignant stories include ‘My Cave of Treasures’ and ‘My Mother, Like No Other’.

As per the Dubai Media Office, ‘My Cave of Treasures’ showcases Sheikh Mohammed’s “determination to transform the room into his personal space for contemplation, brainstorming and experimentation”.

Meanwhile ‘My Mother, Like No Other’ is a heartfelt tribute to his late mother Sheikha Latifa bint Hamdan Al Nahyan.

His Highness recalls the memory of when he found a baby gazelle in the desert all alone and made sure it was safe. Per the Dubai Media Office, in the anecdote, His Highness “recalls wondering at the time whether anyone would care for it as much as its mother”.
