The book is an autobiography of former prime minister of Pakistan & first woman Prime Minister of the Muslim World Benazir Bhutto who was shot dead while she was on a political rally in Rawalpindi, Pakistan and daughter of former prime minister and most influential person of Pakistan Zulfiqar Ali-Bhutto. She twice became Prime Minister of Pakistan and returned back after eight years of exile on 17th December 2007 for the elections to be held on 8th January 2008. The autobiography was written till April 2007 and she died on 27th December, 2007 at the age of 54. The epilogue was re-written by Mark A. Siegal after her death for new edition.

She narrates her life from her birth, her childhood, days in Oxford University, days in captivity, her marriage to Asif Ali Zardari, till she became Prime Minister and after. The book is a one-sided story from the eye of a resident of Pakistan which may offend readers of other origin on few occasions. Few of the incidences are unnecessarily stretched to the length which altogether is not necessary.
