This is a fascinating, deeply moving and compelling recollection of Benazir Bhutto - the first woman to head a Muslim nation and who in the face of death threats from radical Islamists tried to bring democracy back to her native Pakistan only to be violently assassinated.

Daphne Barak's gripping memoir of her dear friend shows us that Benazir Bhutto was many things - zealous guardian of democracy, trailblazing feminist, accused rogue, even one of People magazine's 50 most beautiful peop

Reading "My Benazir", one is wondering, how did an educated, successful woman like Benazir Bhutto,. stuck into relationship with a husband who embarrassed her in front of other people? Why was she so obsessed to please a man, who lacks her education or charisma? Why didn't she walk out of this obsession-rejection relationship?

A very touching and profound recounting of Mrs. Bhuttu's last years before her tragic assassination, as viewed by a very personal and close friend, international and world-reknown journalist, Ms. Daphne Barak.
It opens a window into the many worlds of one of the twenty-first century's prominent leaders. Sensitive, and romantic; a side of Benazir Bhutto that has been unseen and unknown to her own people and the rest of the world. Truly loved it and highly recommend for an insight into the his

Meet the Author

Daphne Barak is one of the leading A-list interviewers in the world. Barak conducts a wide range of sit-down interviews with A-list heads-of-state, royals, Hollywood stars, musicians, athletes, artists, fashion designers, supermodels and newsmakers.

Her television specials and print exclusives are distributed in all leading outlets, and throughout many countries around the world, in their own languages, including USA, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland, Croatia, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Arab world, Pakistan, India, Far East, Russia, China, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, and S. Africa.

Barak owns her own intellectual property which consists of hundreds of filmed interviews which are comprehensive, historical and wide ranging.

Barak made top ratings with her specials with Michael Jackson and his parents, Liza Minnelli, Eric Clapton, Mia Farrow, Johnny Depp, Luciano Pavarotti and many other A-listers.

Politically speaking, Barak is known to get under the skin of leaders and support causes she shares with some. For example: Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, Yaser Arafat of Palestine, Moammar Qaddafi of Libya, Nelson Mandela of S. Africa, Shimon Peres of Israel, Mother Theresa, Hillary Clinton and many other heads-of-state.

This is why Barak has hosted Hillary Clinton, and supported her presidential bid. This is also the reason why she hosted and supported other events for Benazir Bhutto. It was about democracy, the best person for the job and - about a close friendship.

My Benazir is Barak's second book. Her first book was a diary of addiction: Saving Amy, covering six months period that Barak spent with Amy Winehouse and her parents. After the book was published Amy stated: "Only Daphne can explain my complicated life!"
