Engaging and easy to listen to, despite complexities
The history of Jihad and its current global impact.
Absolutely, I would recommend it.
Rarely reported details about growing rejection of radical Islam and the encouraging progress within hard line countries. It was well researched and ended encouragingly. It gave me compassion for the people living in Iran and similar countries and restored my belief that we are more alike than different.
Business Physicist and Astronomer
This is an interesting and mostly factual book. It does give some great background on the most significant geopolitical problem of our time.
But there's a hook. The author has definite and unconcealed bias. It taints information about, say, Jordan when the chapter ends with "I do and we all should pray for Jordan".
I have nothing against prayer and practice myself. However, as religion is at the heart of this very serious problem, I prefer to get my background unadjusted by someone's faith. Bush and his god granted mandate is little different than any ayatollah's mandate. (lower case by choice)
This is similar to adapting god to science. The liberal view of creation changes with each scientific discovery. Blah.
So be prepared for a very biased, though still interesting presentation. But verify and investigate anything that you find disturbing to be certain is was not "adjusted".
