“In this delightful book, Hooman Majd, a gifted storyteller, takes us on a tour of his own private Persia, which is also the Iran of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The results are illuminating, humorous, sobering, and ultimately reassuring.”

--JON LEE ANDERSON, author of "Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life" and "The Fall of Baghdad"

“Imagine if Alexis de Tocqueville had returned from America to France and then, with the gimlet eye of a native son who’d spent years abroad, explained his oft-misperceived country to the world. That’s what the ever wise and witty Hooman Majd has accomplished in his captivating new book that is sure to become essential election-year reading for anyone wanting to understand the paradox that is Iran (as well as America) in the post-Bush world.........” GQ, October 2008

“Hooman Majd's "The Ayatollah Begs to Differ: The Paradox of Modern Iran" is perhaps the best book yet written on the contradictions of contemporary Iran........Part memoir, part travelogue, part cultural criticism, "The Ayatollah Begs to Differ" captures like no book in recent memory the ethos of the country, in elegant and precise prose.” The Los Angeles Times, November 23, 2008

Selected as one of the best books of 2008, The Economist
