Very worth reading for the portraits of ordinary Arab citizens who are just fed up with pretty much everybody. His idea on public policy towards the region: "Support the normal family guy" is a very valid one but it doesn't sell weapons systems.
Did you know that every Middle East country has a secret police - the Muhabarat - a behind-the-scenes enforcer supporting the rulers and operating outside the stated structure of each country. The tall blond author grew up in the Middle East, and has unwittingly gone afoul of different secret police units in various countries as he travels. Since he speaks fluent Arabic, he ends up speaking w his jailers, and sometimes the heads of Muhabarats in various countries. What results is a revelation of the contrast between official and off-the-record government institutions ruling the Middle East. Extremely interesting, especially with recent revolution attempts. The author has been interviewed by news agencies about his take on the demonstrations. Very interesting and readable.
