  • IMPORTANT STORY

    5
    By JKinLOU
    This is an important story about what can be done by people against nearly impossible odds. It is a true story, wonderfully told, and is relevant today (2015) as much as it was when the events of the story were happening (1979). I am better informed about Iran and its way of viewing the world (so different from Western norms), and can see that, sadly, we don't seem to have learned much about how to deal with Iran in the more than three decades since the events of this story took place. I can recommend this to anyone who cares about the history of that time and who loves an exciting, well written story.

    This is a great book. I was one of the children in this book and so was my sister. We were adopted from here. My dad worked for EDS and my parents were over in Iran at this time. My sister and I were two of the children smuggled out of the country. All the accounts in this book are real and true. With out the heroics of my parents and Ross Perot, we would not be here today.

    Very well-written story about some courageous Americans. If just half of it was true, it would still be outstanding.
  • Outstanding!

    If you live in Texas, work with EDS, have a thirst for history, or a taste for adventure, then this is a "must read" If you are a supporter of Jimmy Carter and his administration, this book will challenge you. If you think of only Dana Carvey's impression when you hear the name of Ross Perot, then you need to read this to get your perspective back.
