This book was not bad, but it makes Khomeini look like a good person. The book does not mention the 1988 Iranian Massacres or other crimes he committed. The book left out all the bad things Khomeini did. I do not recommend this book to people that think he is evil, but if you don't, you will probably like it.
for the person who rated this novel low.. simply because your clearly influenced by western propaganda..understand being ignorant helped no one prior to your existence nor will it be an aid to any one after your life.
anyways this review is about this book. and wow. its an amazing start to get to know this leader. he saw his beloved country and the innocent people within his land being tortured and tired of the shah regime so he took a stand for what is right. -for the record he is human he is not an infallible to guide without killing.
