Even when free wasn't worth the price
on September 1, 2012
Confession: I rated this book one star because that's the lowest option I had. I was given this book to review. Couldn't bring myself to review it, so I had to return it. It was beneath contempt. A tendentious screed. The author knows next to nothing about the Arab Spring, the Iranian Revolution, Islamic movements, and the limits of American power, yet that doesn't stop her from making the most absurd and unsubstantiated assertions. There are dozens of real books out there on all these topics. I would suggest the author read a few and the readers of this review skip over this travesty and go directly to them.
