"PRISON TO PALACE, PM FOR ALL" is the story of Anwar Ibrahim's turbulent, moving, bold, and visionary journey from a village boy to the Prime Minister of Malaysia. The chapters weave through the intricacies of political challenges, repression, injustice, and trials and tribulations. Eventually, Anwar achieved his childhood dream of becoming Malaysia's leader. The book traces his rise to power, fall from grace, and his resilience in the face of adversity, including ten years of inhumane treatment in prison.

Despite the odds, Anwar turned his adversity into an opportunity for growth, and his experience in solitary confinement led to brilliant, innovative, and decisive thinking. He reflected positively on life and has returned to reset and refresh Malaysia towards reform, unity, peace, and harmony. The book details Malaysia's changing political history and showcases penetrating insights into the events leading to Anwar's crowning glory. It portrays stories of hurt and healing, abuse and forgiveness, gloom and glory, and tears and triumph.

The book includes Malaysian narratives and articles that best describe Anwar through the inner stirrings of Malaysian writers and journalists. Anwar's struggle, journey, and destiny are narrated through anecdotal episodes and the author's interactions and insights covering Anwar as a journalist.

November 19, 2022, marked a momentous day for people power, as Anwar was elected as the leader of Malaysia in GE15. It heralded a new economic, social, and political landscape under his leadership. Anwar is committed to charting a future for Malaysians through his compassionate and moderate style to promote unity in diversity.

This book is 8th book written by M. Krishnamoorthy, an Adjunct Professor/Journalist/Media Relations and Crisis Management Coach & Trainer. Worked as Senior Reporter for NST & The Star for more than 2 decades. He still works for CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera, Time magazine, New York Times as well as German, American and Australian TV stations.

The author says: “Hopes and dreams of being Prime Minister dimmed for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim while being sentenced to jail three times. Yet, his will, vision and humanity shone through his mind, soul and heart on the road to Putrajaya. In September 1998, Anwar was sacked and led public protests against Premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad. It was the start of a Reformasi, a reform movement that would influence a generation of Malaysian democracy activists. His dreams came true 24 years later when he became the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia. It is the story of Anwar’s journey from PRISON TO PALACE and then to PRIME MINISTER FOR ALL.”

Foreword for this book is given by Datuk Seri Azman Ujang (former Chairman & CEO of Bernama). He has written: “Krishna’s book has Malaysian narratives and articles that best describe ANWAR, PRISON TO PALACE AND PM FOR ALL. Chapters reflect the inner stirrings and extracts of Malaysian journalists and commentators who shed penetrating insights into the events leading to the iconic moment of Anwar’s crowning glory as Prime Minister. The book weaves stories of hurt and healing, abuse and forgiveness, gloom and glory, and tears and triumph. 19th November 2022, was a momentous day for all Malaysians. It heralded a new economic, social and political landscape for the citizens.”
