Super Book that gives that an outstanding insight to the conservative Saudia Arabia, and its complex links to the Islamic and western worlds. Very easy to read, well constructed and extremely interesting

This is a fascinating discovery of the middle east, with characters of shiekh's, radicals, religious fanatics and others. A good background of this country put together only a short few decades ago.
