Pakistan: A Personal History (2011) is a book written by Imran Khan, the current Prime Minister of Pakistan and former cricketer.[1] In this book Khan has written on Pakistan's history; his political party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf; and his own life and cricket career.[2][3]


In the book Pakistan: A Personal History, Khan talked about different events in his journey from a cricketer to one of the best all rounders of world cricket to a head of a national political party of Pakistan. He has written on cricket and politics.[4] The book contains both personal disclosure and political commentaries. Khan has called up events from his Test cricket days, his captaincy, 1992 Cricket World Cup. He talked about his relationship with his ex-wife, Jemima Khan, and the hate campaign built around him.[5]


After the book was published in 2011, The Independent wrote in its review, "This book, an intelligently written mix of Pakistan's history and his own autobiography, reflects on the challenges that Khan faced in cricket and later, in his humanitarian work."[5]
