It presents the standard liberal view that there isn't really a problem with Islam. Like most people presenting this view he clearly hasn't bothered to read the Quran. And includes no references from it. He says it's "not about us"; that it's just a an internal political jostling rather than a response to the Quran's clear commandments to kill and subdue the unbelievers, in a worldwide scope. The book is a superficial survey of the news and recent history (looking at his biblio mostly from other articles -- usually from the Guardian -- rather deeper studies found in books).

This book clarifies the situation in the Middle East, and the stategies and motives behind Islamic State, better than anything I've read. And yes, true to its title, it provides solid reasons not to panic.

Excellent summary of the history and current (late 2015) positioning of Al Qaeda and IS. Various Western government positions and tactics reviewed and potential scenarios presented.
As a person with some (evening news) knowledge of the area, this book greatly expanded my understanding of the difficulties and why the present is what it is.
At 209 pages, the book provides interesting insight and is well worth the time.

Easy to read, this overview of the current players in the Middle East, with a great summary of the history of the events and Western mis-steps that exacerbated the situation, is highly informative. A review of current options, with predicted outcomes, is also very helpful.
