Review and Commentary on “A Gentle Giant” 

Gen. Malik Shaukat Hassan

This refers to the Review and commentary on my book “A Gentle Giant” published in Pulse International June 1st 2018. I have just finished reading it. I am overwhelmed by the extensive detailing of Abujan’s (Gen.Malik Shaukat Hassan) life and the notable appreciation of my humble maiden foray into the daunting world of publishing. There is one correction the name of publishers Googol not Google. I am also grateful that you have included the contact for anyone who desires obtaining this book. I have already provided copies to some libraries and several AMC high-up’s/senior doctors. We live in a world where people seldom make time to read. I have no words to thank you for your kindness towards my effort.

Actually I had read the review Online last night before I received the printed copies today. I have already forwarded this website link to my family and friends. It is so great that Pulse International is available online and one can access all the previous issues as well. It was Abuja n’s 4th death anniversary yesterday (May 31st) so your write up was extremely well timed. I am again speechless over your kind consideration and true dedication to your noble profession. My mother prefers to read from paper and she joins me in expressing our profound gratitude over your favour.

Anyone wishing to receive a copy of the book can contact Azmat Altaf Malik, House No. 6-A/1, Street-70, F-8/3, Islamabad. E mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
