    " The demand for an increase in communication with/and understanding of "Generation Freedom" is worth the purchase of this book. A new generation is rising in the Middle East, one that Americans may have more in common with than we think. "

    " good impressionistic account of the Egyptian uprising, but fails utterly by trying to explain it purely from the vantage point of religious hoopla "

    " Want real perspective about what's going on with the so-called "Arab Spring"? Read this book. Now. "

    " I feel bad giving this book a bad review because the author clearly has his heart in the right place, but nonetheless, I will. The thesis is poorly argued, the metaphors are overly simplistic, and I learned absolutely nothing about the Arab Spring that I didn't already know. "
