Reviews - What do customers think about Mondays in the Middle East?
Wholesome humor with a fresh perspective -- Author's comments May 23, 2007
I began writing Mondays in the Middle East from Bahrain in 1999 to relay cultural insights for a Midwestern radio station. I have tried to maintain two key principles during writing:
1. I want to be respectful of the religious beliefs of the Arab people.
2. I want to poke fun at myself and my own culture as much as I might poke fun at Arab culture.
Mondays in the Middle East is intended to open people's minds to more of life in the Middle East than they might otherwise know. It seems that the slant presented by the Western media has every Arab holding an AK-47 and a hand grenade. I want to present some of the real-life situations I've come across that give a different view and I want to do it with a bit of humor for all.
The Middle East in general has become an important region to understand not just because of the Iraq wars, but because Arab people are influencing the Western world like never before. My hope is that this book will give a new perspective of understanding to the Western reader with a healthy dose of light-hearted humor. Enjoy and have fun!

THE MIDDLE EAST IN A POSITIVE LIGHT! Dec 25, 2006
How wonderful to read about the good, fun people and lifestyle differences between the USA & MIDDLE EAST. It is truly a joy to read beyond the war torn life of that area of the world! This delightful book gives us an opportunity to see the likeness of God's people in different cultures. A quick enjoyable read!
