"Historically incisive, geographically broad-reaching, and brimming with illuminating anecdotes." (Max Rodenbeck, New York Review of Books)
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.
The explanation of the differences between the sects.
The narrator could learn to pronounce what he is reading.
No. I do not find this question relevant. It made me think and it made me interested in finding out more.
I love to learn, grow and evolve as an being!
YES, A++ The author Vali Nasr Does EXCELLENT Job of simplifying such a complex issue. Very thoughtful and really unbiased. More of a historical perspective of how we got to where we are today. Makes a very complicated issue easier to understand. He has a very good “deep” understanding of this topic and looks at many angles and issues. Perfect for someone who wants to better understand the geo-religious- politics of the Middle East.
