I read the book in two nights and found it utterly refreshing! Especially in light of recent events this book will help all of us Americans to see Arabs and Muslims as people first, making us question the Arab enemy image that we are continually bombarded with. This book is truly a contribution to cultural understanding and hopefully world peace.
So, once you get past the intro, the meat of this book is incredible. You just can't get this information elsewhere. It's priceless. I've not found enough resources on Tunisian culture and women in Tunisia/North Africa (in English) that are truly informative like this. Most books offer just the tourist perspective, this offers you life perspectives, and insights into the real people and families of Tunis. Yes, it's a bit dated, but when you need a starting point for understanding Tunisia and Tunisians, this is incredibly helpful.
Tunisia is such a very different country, and this book finally tells some of the story of its people. I'm impressed and pleased. It's a reference book that, outside of the intro, is actually a pretty easy read.
