    1. A truly fascinating look into a man who is in the West considered to be a criminal at best and a monster at worst. It delves deep into the recesses of Islamic philosophy, the good and bad, and makes you step back to re-evaluate your views on this man who, through these writings, demonstrates his reluctance to become the leader of his troubled country but his desire to do good things for his people. We may not agree with some of the things he did, but this helps you to understand how he got there [...]

    2. Hamid Algar, the translator, does an amazing job translating this book, which - - aside from a brief introduction by Algar - - consists of speeches and writings by Khomeini. I don't agree with much of what Khomeini wrote, but still it's a fascinating read and gives valuable insight to the foundations of Iran's 1979 revolution. To anyone interested in knowing more about Khomeini or Iran's revolution, I highly recommend this book. It's not always riveting, but it's often thought-provoking and offe [...]

    3. If you're looking for a view into the mind of this man, a good place to start.

Favorite part - where he says the story of Jesus turning the other cheek couldn't possibly be true because no Prophet would ever do something so stupid, and that this story is an invention of imperialists desi [...]

    4. It's interesting how much of what he did was in the name of the Nation, of Reason, of Humanity, of Freedom, how much he understands modern science and western culture, yet still steeped deeply in anticommunism, antisemitism and antiamericanism. No wonder his ideas attracted so many western fellow travellers from both the left and the right. Also an example that intellect and genuine spirituality are compatible with almost any kind of political ideal.
