In this book, NPR social media chief Andy Carvin - "the man who tweets revolutions" - offers a unique first-person recap of the Arab Spring. Part memoir, part history, the book includes intimate stories of the revolutionaries who fought for freedom on the streets and across the Internet - stories that would have never been recorded before the days of social media.

I saw Egypt begin her fight, but was forced to leave in February. I monitored the Arab Spring on twitter, following @acarvin and many of these people he mentions. All of it comes back in greater context and understanding as I listen to his story.
It broke my heart to leave. Thank you for this book. Like social media did for those of us who cared, you connect us once more to the real, complex, human story, past and current, of heroes and their sacrifice.

Good and different.
A unique way write to write a book, and tell the story of the Arab Spring; told from the viewpoint of the people at the fore front, armed only with their phones, and cameras.
Only dry part of the story is about the Syrian lesbian, it dragged on too long.
