Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I can listen to what Robert Spencer has to say. If knowledge is power (as they say), then this is probably the best source.
Would you be willing to try another book from Robert Spencer? Why or why not?
Absolutely. If knowledge is power (as they say), then this is probably the best source.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Bob Reed?
Do you think The Complete Infidel's Guide to Iran needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Perhaps. This subject is arguably the most important of our time.

What disappointed you about The Complete Infidel's Guide to Iran?
Everything. I was interested in Iran, saw good reviews, and thought this would be a good pick. I should have looked into the author more and done more research. First, the book is put together in a completely random order. What editor looked at this thing and allowed it to be published? Chapter 7 (yes 7) deals with a history of Persia and clearly should have been the first chapter. Chapter 1 deals with JCPOA, which chronologically is last in order of events. Most puzzling was a chapter that espoused a conspiracy theory that President Obama wanted the JCPOA because he is the son of a Shia Muslim and therefore sympathetic to Iran. Just strange. The early chapters are made up almost entirely of quotes strung together which make them incredibly difficult to listen to. He also throws in random headlines like "ostrich alert" and "not that this has anything to do with Islam" over and over again which are painful to hear again, and again, and again. This is only audible book I've downloaded that I might not actually finish.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Real history or something by an actual scholar
What three words best describe Bob Reed’s performance?
Not that great
What character would you cut from The Complete Infidel's Guide to Iran?
Any additional comments?
This book is a clearly partisan screed with little to no actual scholarship. Listen only if you want your anti-Islam, anti-Iran biases confirmed.

Any additional comments?
The message of the book is well needed to shine light upon the iron curtain of political correctness -- the wall that is put in place by those who want to force the political discourse to conform to the multicultural "bliss" of mass migration, the increasing amount of terror attacks, the imported criminality and the islamization of the West.
Unfortunately, the narration is not done properly. Every chapter and subchapter seems to start with a long quote that one finds out later does not belong to the author. The narrator should start each quote by clearly declaring that it is a quote, by not doing so the book is rather confusing to listen to.
I've just finished listening to this Audio Book.
I can't recommend it highly enough for those wishing to get an insight into the Islamic Republic of Iran and how and why it exists.
It gives an honest and frank account of how the Iranian people have been the victims of unjust colonial powers and how it has fallen into the hands of a dogmatic barbaric regime.
It gives an excellent analysis of how successive US presidents have failed to deal with a threat to world peace,...
