I thought this book was well done and quite interesting politically about the Middle East. Queen Noor's point of view is obviously quite different from Israel's and the US's point of view. Two points are well worth considering. 1.How different the world would be if students could attend Peace Academies instead of Military Academies. 2. Rewriting history -- Palestinians being displaced from their homeland by the Israelis vs. no one was living in the land that Israel took -- the Palestinians only arrived after the Israelis began to settle there in search of the jobs the Israelis were creating in their settlement of the area. But, no matter how you look at it, she has led a fascinating life.
