Description

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban is the biography of the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. It depicts her inspirational journey from one of the most conservative societal background to becoming a global icon as an education activist, being a school pupil herself.

Summary of the Book

Malala Yousafzai hails from the Swat Valley in Pakistan, a region controlled by the Taliban. Her brave parents sent her to school when the entire society itself didn’t support girl education, not just Taliban. Coming from a community that prides sons and not daughters even today, Malala has been leading peaceful protests against those who are against educational rights for children, especially girls. She has proved to the world beyond doubt that one person could indeed bring about immense changes no matter what hurdles he/she has to encounter – including being shot in the head by the Taliban and phenomenally surviving it!

About the Authors

Malala Yousafzai, along with Christina Lamb, has intensely recorded a remarkable journey of herself as a sixteen-year-old who went on to become a Nobel Peace Prize nominee. Born in Pakistan, she now resides in Birmingham, England.

Christina Lamb is one of the UK’s foremost foreign correspondents. She has also been named the Foreign Correspondent of the Year five times in the British Press Awards and What the Papers Say Awards. In 2007, she was the winner of the Prix Bayeux Calvados for her reporting from Afghanistan - one of the world's most prestigious prizes for war correspondents.

I Love Malala

I Love Malala for what she is and for what she stands for. Thanks to her supportive father who inspired her to fight against the injustices done to young girls of Swat, by abandoning them of their right to education. A youngest recipient of Nobel peace prize and indeed a brave girl that she is. Coming to the content of this book, it is simply an autobiography of a young girl fighting for her rights and in turn facing dire consequences. I think one should have a copy of this book to inspire ma...

Mind-blowing purchase

When I started reading the book little had I imagined that I would finish it in one go. I finished the book in 5 hours. The last two chapters were really fantastic. A life story lucidly described. It is a very inspiring account of a young school girl fighting for education in a hostile setting. I recommend the book for everyone to learn about the Taliban and their cruelty. It is a page turner and makes very interesting reading.

Written with a kid's perspective

This book is written with a kid's perspective. It innocently describes Swat, the daily school and the growing up. One should note that the protagonist was hardly in her teenage when she was shot. Her bravery is raw, clearly she is, even at that age, a stubborn campaigner for education. This book is inspirational particularly for children. Though a little too much of religion is thrown in there but I imagine that it was an integral part of her childhood and thus is a necessary part of the book...

Really good book

I have finished 1/3 rd of the book . This book has given a good insight into not only life of Malala but insight to the real Pakistan and Pakistani politics. Its worth reading about this Brave Girl whose secular thoughts have really impressed me . She has set a good example not only for all the girls in Swat valley but also for all the girls around the world who fight daily for the right of education .

One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change

Completed this book Yesterday, The book was optimistic, inspiring on the other side it doesn't have the potential what we expect. The initial parts of the book was interesting as we dont know about malala & family. Later from the other parts its the same what you see in the media about taliban, how malala escaped from the death in birmingham. Her ideas were really interesting as a reality no one knows how its works, the way she speaks to media is really interesting, I personally feel this gir...

This changed the way I think about Pakistan and its people.

It is a good read. Written through the eyes of a young girl it gives a different account of Pakistan. It talks about day to day life and poliitical development's through a child's eyes.
The numerous Pashtu customs she decribes are also interesting and bear resemlance to many Indian ones.
Overall this book really changed the way i think about Pakistan and its people. Must read!
Brave girl and even braver is her Father.

Worth the money

This is a good book; it tells how Malala, the youngest nobel peace winner was shot in the head and still survived. It tells how much she craves to go back to her home in Pakistan but is living in the UK with her family for security reasons. It is truly an inspiring novel. The paper quality is also fine according to the money you are paying for it.
