The History of Iran from Ancient Persia to the Ayatollahs is not so much a history book as a timeline of events in Iranian history. There is little explanation of the historical events, just lists of dates. Kings and dynasties are introduced but to the reader unfamiliar with the history of the region, the foreign names seem to blend together with little to distinguish them.

The writing is not bad and this book is useful as a timeline, especially for the thirty years of the Islamic Republic. Still, most of the information in this book could easily be found online or in a decent encyclopedia, or even in Wikipedia for that matter. I was somewhat disappointed that there was not more to it and I don't really feel that it is worth the price I paid for it.

This has to be the worst history book that I have ever [tried] to read. They have regugitated fact after fact with nothing to make it readible or meaningful. Even if it were free it would be over priced.

This book offers a good brief history of Iran. It is an easy read; however, it does contain several minor errors.
It is not a scholarly reference, but a decent quick guide.
