Rock the Casbah
I'm watching The Daily Show and Colbert Report again. B watches them and I usually do with him. The good, and bad, part is that the shows have so many nonfiction authors on that I end up requesting book after book. That's how i discovered Rock the Casbah by Robin Wright, not the actress by the way. It is all about the Arab Spring, how the events in the various countries came about. It was really fascinating but suffered a bit from lack of photos. I read most of it with my phone next to me, looking up the pictures of people mentioned and several of the videos she refers to. Doing that helped me understand more i believe. A 5 and i can recommend it!
