Comprehensive!

I really learned a lot from listening to this book. It's an extensive history of the Middle East, with well stated timelines, huge amounts of historical data, interspersed with anecdotes from real people. The book was spawned when a businessman decided to try and figure out why middle easterners hate Americans so much. Basically, America has been unable to keep its nose out of foreign countries where oil is a major concern. Our passive atrocities have kept compounding since the First World War. It makes me sick that our loyalties keep changing to back the winning team. I received this book as a gift, in exchange for an honest review. Based on the description, I didn't think I was going to like it, but I ended up listening to it all day. I feel qualified to actually have an in depth conversation about these issues. Excellent!
