Very interesting book for all Iranians. I wished Buchan wouldn't rush through the last 30 years with the speed of light...
There are some minor mistakes but the book is historically correct and very entertaining.
I think this book is excellent if read in tandem with Abbas Milani's "The Shah". http://www.amazon.com/Shah-Abbas-Milani/dp/0230340385
They complement each other.

Here in Brazil, I read this great (in both paths) book. Great in size and details.
This book has these main qualities:
1- This book is well organized and made by someone that really knows its subject. The author even lived in Iran, some years, before the Islamic Revolution.
2- This book has chapters, about Iran decades before the Islamic Revolution. You can't understand Islamic Revolution without to know these decades.
3- Every chapter has the correct size, about its subject.
4- The introduction is well done.
Even so, I have to give four stars, instead of five, because of these problems:
1- Beginning in its the title, this book uses the word "God", instead of the word "Allah".
2- About the Shah, this book is mainly correct, but it makes a short mistake when tells that the Shah's main defect, was distrut. In fact, before its fall, the Shah trusted too much his "friends". Above all, he trusted American president Carter, for too much time. I think that with any American president, the Shah would had fell, but this book forgets the hysteric American and European press' campaingn against the Shah. This book also forgets the massive flow of money from United States (CIA,etc.) to the Khomeini's political movement. About the mission of the American General Robert Ernest Huyser (1924 – 1997) this book forgets how Carter used Huyser, as a tool to decieve Iranian generals and then Khomieni could ordered their extermination easily. See the book "Jimmy Carter: The Liberal Left and World Chaos: A Carter/Obama Plan That Will Not Work" writen by Mike Evans. The fact that Soviet Newspapers wrote the 100% lie, that Huyser was in Iran to produce a military coup is showed, in this book. The terrible behavior of American Ambassador in Iran(between 1977 and 1979) William Healy Sullivan (1922 – 2013), has no space in this book.

Mr. Buchan clearly performed enormous research in preparing for this book. Indeed, it may be too detailed in portions of the book, unless a reader has a very personal reason for reading it, such as one of the tens of thousand who fled Iran before and after the Revolution. Still, it provides a reader some real insights into why Iran is what it is today.
