Reviews

Former CIA operative Baer (Sleeping with the Devil) shows us just how powerful Iran -really is. With a four-city tour. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

"A masterpiece...Baer's brilliant analysis of Sunni versus Shia, Arab versus Iranian, and Christian versus Muslim is shocking, revealing, and provocative. Baer lifts the veil of Western media hype and challenges the simplistic solutions offered by 'experts' whose vision is blurred by the past. Through his knowledge, long-term experience, and ability to assess the changing landscape of this vital region, he not only shatters the foundations of conventional thinking, but also offers a practicable blueprint for turning things around."
--John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestseller Confessions of an Economic Hit Man "The most important and original book on the Middle East to appear in many years. Baer's subject is the growing power of Iran; his goal is ending the pattern of American failure; his message is that we've been backing the wrong horse. This is a book McCain and Obama should ponder."
--Thomas Powers, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Man Who Kept the Secrets and Intelligence Wars "The Devil We Know, Bob Baer has once again peered into the future and has brought back uncomfortable truths that won't satisfy any partisan. But his book does force us to do something that, unfortunately, doesn't come naturally to the chattering classes. Think."
--James Risen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration "An important text studded with keen insights into a nation about which America remains dangerously misinformed."
--Kirkus Reviews "Timely and provocative...adds an important perspective to a crucial international debate."
--Publishers Weekly "Challenges conventional wisdom...[a] timely and provocative analysis."
--Denver Post
