Nathan Young I agree with Brian. And I'll add--this is a very helpful book for anyone who wants an introduction to Turkey--culture, society, and politics. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in visiting the country.

Brian well-said Nate! Definitely a light-hearted intro to a complex culture.
