The Ayatollah Begs to Differ Majd, Hooman Anchor; Reprint edition (July 28, 2009)

Excellent perspective into present-day thinking in Iran, written by a guy fluent in both cultures.  Majd was raised in both Iran and the USA, is the grandson of a famous ayatollah and therefore whas access a regular journalist would not have, and is a frequent contributor to CNN on things related to Iran. 

This is a crucial look into the mindset of the modern Iranian society.  A lucid book, highly recommended.
