Good Book.

The Weight of a Mustard Seed: 
The Intimate Story of an Iraqi General and His Family During Thirty Years of Tyranny
by Wendell Steavenson

Its a true story about an Iraqi general and his family.
He worked for Sadaam Hussein.
He was a good man.. but he sat by while bad things happened.
It makes you think about why we do what we do.. or don't do.
And if it is who we are or what we do that makes us good or bad people.
It is so eye opening.
I like that it is a story of an Iraqi family, because it shows the situation through their eyes, rather than through the eyes of an outsider.

PS - I got the hardcover on for $3 plus shipping.  That deserves a shout out.
