    Where Do These Facts Come From?

    I am very disappointed with Musharraf's book, one that he seemed to promote more than diplomacy on his visit to the United States a few weeks ago. Many of the facts found throughout the book have no reference attributed to them, and after having done some research, many are indeed incorrect (e.g., Urdu did not originate in Turkey as Musharraf claims). I found it troubling that Musharraf writes in one section about a flight he took to Karachi. This flight had many schoolchildren with many asking him for his autograph and photo. When officials in Karachi refused to let him land in Pakistan and the pilot said they might crash unless they landed in India, however, Musharaff was willing to crash this same plane rather than attempt to save these children and other passengers by trying to land in India. I find these contrasts in his character to be very untenable. I am glad that I live in a democracy where I can freely express my views on this book. It is a shame that Musharraf's people cannot in the same capacity. Perhaps through his military power, Musharraf can have his citizens by his book for him.

    cheap publicity

    well this book by the dictator depicts dictatorship in it. he has insulted those people such as bhutto who lives in the hearts of pakistani bhutto died 27 years ago but still his party that is pakistan peoples party has the biggest votebank in pakistan just because of great bhutto. musharraf has just filled the pages to sell the book and to get cheap publicity as well. altough he succeeded in his primary goals about the book but he cant win the sympathies of the pakistani people who are just now sick of inflation,poverty,unemployment which has increased drastically during his(i must say reign). well this is all icould say this book is mere collection of false notes and stories on which a responsible person should not trust. i will suggest you not to buy it.
