Unveiling a personality!

If you are a fan of people who have done extraordinary things with their lives, this book is for you! To read of a woman who has accomplished so much through sheer grit and determination is a true motivator for oneself! Shahnazs' life reads like the stuff of movies - very vivid, very crisp, very emotionally involved. For an avid reader, this book compares to Princess and Daughters of Arabia by Jean Sasson and the like. Don't look for shortcuts to business in this book, enjoy it purely for the moments that make Shahnaz a diva! Its a fascinating insight into one of India's most flamboyant perso

Brilliant Read!

AMAZING BOOK!!! like wow!!
i saw lots of promotions about this book.. thought i will give it a try..! bought it for my sister...she's crazy about Shahnaz Husain... but i ended up keeping this copy and sending her another one!.. It is such a compelling story! Seems like you're sitting in the same room as her while things are happening in her life! Feel emotional at places, proud in some.. like you know her.. Well i know her better now than ever before!!!
