Extremely interesting. First account of the issues preventing peace that was substantive and insightful. Ought to be required reading for Congress and any President although I realize Trump doesn't read.

Pure. Racist. Trash.
In the foreword, the author describes himself as 'deeply humble' and claims this book will lead you on a journey of unbiased, thoughtful and carefully considered fact-based analysis of the situation of the Middle East. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Within 30 minutes it was obvious that this man has nothing but contempt for the Arab culture. He makes sweeping generalizations about the Arabs and Arab culture under the guise of 'fact', and backs them up with simple anecdotes or quotes from random sources - sometimes from Facebook!! of all places.
On numerous occasions he factually stated the reasons why various politicians made certain decisions - am I to believe that Muammar Gaddafi confided his private thoughts to the author?
I turned it off in Chapter 3 when he gloatingly contrasted the virtues of the Israeli culture to the shortcomings of the mindset of the Arab people.

Well narrated. The author challenges thinking and sets out arguments, which provoke thought. There is a biased view expressed here, given the subject matter it is difficult to find a body of work without such bias. Worth a listen/read as part of wider research in to the region. Keep an open mind.
