Tales from the Zirzameen is a must read for all Iranian-Americans and a fun read for everyone else. It recounts the context within which the Islamic revolution of 1979 unfolded and the drastic changes it brought about. The book is fun to read and it flows very nicely. Amidst all the negative sentiments for Iran, it is so refreshing to see Brian Appleton's fascination and love for the Iranian culture and society. I hope many Americans will read Tales from the Zirzameen to acquire a different viewpoint through which they can get to know the generosity and compassion of the Iranian people. I thank Brian Appleton (aka Rasool Ariadust) for his great contribution to the improvement of American-Iranian relations.
