Between Oxbridge and partridge, Imran Khan could have lived happily ever after, milking the first and shooting the second, a Lord of Swing wafting on privileges due to a legitimate national hero who brought home the World Cup in 1992. He could have taken the soft route to power. Gen. Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq invited him to join his Cabinet. Khan refused, a singularly sensible decision, not least because the controversial general was dead within a few weeks of his offer.
Instead, Khan chose to test his commitment and fortitude in the deadly chaos of Pakistan’s electoral politics.
This book is the story of how a big boy who also played at night grew up to become Man of Destiny. The odds are good that he could lead his country’s government in 2013.
