Customer reviews

It is presented as a non-fiction, but with a mixture of thriller novel. From the very beginning it is a clear US, one-sided propaganda, full of orientalist topics and bringing Ross Perot to the altars. If you can continue reading, it doesn't get better. It seems to Ken and all the characters on the book that the Shah's regime was much better than anything else, and of course everything that was done wrong was either by the Iranians or other companies, not their lovely corporation. Rubbish is a kind word to define this book.show more
