New book on Iran

Posted on by 2,919 views

Hooman Majd is a childhood friend of mine. His book on Iran, The Ayatollah Begs to Differ, has just been published. I have not seen it, but knowing Hooman and seeing previous writings, I think this will be a great read for those wanting a better understanding of the complexities in Iranian culture.

He is already gaining fame in radio and TV interviews. My prediction is that he will be one of the de facto commentators on iran. He has been aptly described as 100% Iranian and 100% American.

Update: Here is Hooman’s interview on the Jon Stewart Show. (Wow, can’t believe it’s my friend on this show!!)
