I admit I first got interested in this book when I saw that Michael Franti was reading it. Not because I usually care what a musician I like is reading, but because he mentioned it in his Facebook feed (really!), and the title was intriguing. I'd read only a little about Iran, and this seemed like a good way to expand my horizons. Majd is an engaging writer, and his personal connections to Iran, especially ayatollahs and others in power, make his stories that much more interesting, not to mention insightful.
