    Profiled on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, Iranian-born scholar Vali Nasr has become one of America's leading commentators on current events in the Middle East, admired and welcomed by both media and government for his "concise and coherent" analysis (Wall Street Journal). In this "smart, clear and timely" book (Washington Post), Nasr brilliantly dissects the political and theological antagonisms within Islam. He provides a unique and objective understanding of the 1,400-year bitter struggle between Shias and Sunnis, and sheds crucial light on its modern-day consequences—from the nuclear posturing of Iran's President Ahmadinejad to the recent U.S.-enabled shift toward Shia power in Iraq and Hezbollah's continued dominance in Lebanon.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Shia Revival to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is poor, because the narrator butchers all the names, places and concepts with his terrible pronunciation. He needs to prepare himself better and learn how to pronounce these words, so he does not at times even alter the meaning of the words.

    The content of the book is superb, but this narration is a disaster.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Shia Revival?

    The explanation of the differences between the sects.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator could learn to pronounce what he is reading.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. I do not find this question relevant. It made me think and it made me interested in finding out more.
