Grant Pakistan’s ruler, Pervez Musharraf, his due: he may be a professional soldier, a commando at that, but his feel for the world of celebrity is unerring. Musharraf turned out to be a booker’s dream as he hawked his memoirs on American talk shows. He knew his audience - In the Line of Fire is a book written for American readers, a tale of how the Bush administration recruited him into the new war after 9/11

But then Pakistan's General Pervez Musharraf does not always concern himself with convention and has released In the Line of Fire a year before the next elections in Pakistan are due, leading many to suspect it is more of a manifesto than a memoir. The general also set out on an equally curious book tour: his appearance on The Daily Show in America, where he was served green tea and twinkies by comedian Jon Stewart and asked, 'So where is Osama bin Laden?', is now high in the charts of the most-watched YouTube videos.

I highly recommend Pervez Musharraf's memoir In the Line of Fire. When reading someone's memoirs the reader has to keep in mind that those words are written from one person's perspective on events throughout that person's life

I highly recommend Pervez Musharraf's memoir In the Line of Fire. When reading someone's memoirs the reader has to keep in mind that those words are written from one person's perspective on events throughout that person's life. That is what President Pervez Musharraf's In the Line of Fire is - this individual's perception on the way he sees things and the events he participated in. For what it's worth I'm glad I now have a good understanding about why Western-styled democracy doesn't really work in Pakistan. If a nation is half illiterate (48%) and.

Pervez Musharraf's life has mirrored the life of his country, ever since Pakistan's creation when he was a four-year-old boy. His and Pakistan's stories are dramatic, fateful, and crucial to the entire world.

Pervez Musharraf boasts about himself so much in the book that at times I felt, how can someone be that perfect. He starts the book with two suicide bombing attempts on him, which he survived luckily. This memoir came to my reading list from its appearance on the New York Times best seller list in October 2006 - much has happened since then in Pakistan. Jun 19, 2007 Heliya Azita rated it it was amazing.

Musharraf was in third-in line, and was well regarded by the general public and the armed forces. Musharraf called for nationwide political elections in the country after accepting the ruling of the Supreme Court of Pakistan. Musharraf was the first military president to accept the rulings of the Supreme Court and holding free and fair elections in 2002, part of his vision to return democratic rule to the country.

This book was disappointing in the sense of its overt, and at times egregious, promotion of Musharraf and his decisions. However this should also be expected given his background and his own role in Pakistan's history. Despite its flaws, the books gives an essential perspective on:
-The basics of how the Pakistani government truly functions
-The removal of Nawaz Sharif from power
-The Kargil conflict
-Relations with India
-Anti-Terror operations within Pakistan and
-The Murder of Daniel Pearl

The section on the Pearl murder provided a lot more insight than has normally been available to westerners. According to Musharraf, the mastermind, Omar Saeed Sheikh, did not intend that Pearl should die, but that he held in exchange for political concessions from Israel and the US. However, Sheikh executed this operation with people he did not know and who did not trust him. When he tried to order Pearl's release, the militants simply him told him that they killed Pearl.

This account may be a stretch, but it is an example of some of the detail that this memoire can provide.

I would not consider this work a fully "factual" account of these events, but merely Musharraf's "take" on what happened.

I always liked Pervez Musharraf because I strongly believe that military leaders should abolish democracy whenever democracy results in the election of crazy destructive people (socialists and/or religious zealots).

This book is more than repetition of history. It also includes Musharraf's ideas about how the world works and advice about how to be successful. In particular, I liked the final chapter "Reflections."

Although self-congratulatory at times, I found this memoir to be an astounding look at a career of someone whom I have always greatly admired. I thought it was amazing he took the time and effort to write this and communicate to the world his challenges and achievements. Musharraf has successfully walked that very fine line between the secular modernity and Islamic extremism of his constiuents, dragging his country forward into the 21st century. Musharraf is the right man at the right time for his country. Let's all hope, for the sake of Pakistan, and the sake of the world, that he's successful in modernizing and moderating his population.

Pervez Musharraf has a unique perspective on the history of his country and the region.

As President of Pakistan, Musharraf occupied what Time magazine described as "the most dangerous job in the world, playing a critical role in the War on Terror and directing countless raids on Al Qaeda and the Taliban." His book, "In the Line of Fire," speaks to his struggle for the security and political future of Pakistan. He is eloquent in his belief that Pakistan can become progressive, moderate and prosperous.

I bought this memoir before hearing Musharraf speak at Balitmore's Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in the Stevenson University's Baltimore Speakers' Series this Fall.

Remembering this is only one viewpoint, this book was an excellent preview to Pervez Musharraf's talk. This memoir is one I will keep in my library.

How often does a man regarded by many as a dictator write his memoir while in office? You have to take the "facts" with a grain of salt in any autobiography, which is true here. You also have a rare chance to see inside the mind of a man who's legacy is likely to be debated for many years to come.

Musharaff is an important figure, and he has an interesting tale to tell. He begins when he was about five years old, and Pakistan was breaking away from India. Musharaff tells of his life story, from the time he left India to live in what is now Pakistan, to the time he spent in Turkey, to his return to Pakistan, and his rise to power. Along the way are several frightening attempts on his life. The book is readable and informative.

The big question is whether you want to believe anything Musharaff says. I do not know enough to question any of the specifics, but some of what he says seems self-serving, e.g., his account of a border skirmish with India which he claims he "won" and his rise to power. My sense is that he is not to be trusted, but I just do not know enough to say. If you are willing to keep an open mind, however, it is an interesting read.

One small thing that bugged me -- Musharaff claims to be a math wiz, yet he keeps making the same simple mistake over and over. If something grew from 5 to 10, he says it grew 200%. I suppose if it "grew" from 5 to 5, he would claim it grew 100%. I know that sounds petty, but here is a man who claims to be best in his class in math, and to understand how to run an economy, and he keeps making the same silly mistake!
