A good read, 15 Oct 2003
I found this book a very interesting read. This is particulary good for those who would like to have a crash course of Persian history. The facts presented in the book can certainly help to understand some of the problems of Middle East and inside Iran in a historic point of view. The only downside of the book I've found was the mistakes in Persian names and locations. Although they were few but perhaps a better review by some Persian speakers could have prevented them.
