Shaukat Aziz has had a remarkable global career, transitioning from a glittering private sector position to become first finance minister and then prime minister of his country – post he held with real distinction and courage. His book is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the complex interaction between domestic and foreign policy in Pakistan. Aziz addresses issues in four different continents and writes with a wealth of personal detail and colour. This is more than a memoir, it is a book with lessons for the future.
