Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman’s Awakening

Wow… Just wow… Daring to Drive is an incredible book written by an incredibly brave woman, Manal Al-Sharif.  In fact, I will go so far as to say that you will not walk away from reading this book unchanged and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Manal tells her amazing life story so masterfully that I found myself being challenged on every level.  I developed a better understanding of what it has been and, in many ways, continues to be like for women in the Middle East.  I also learned about the cultural mindset of Islam at both moderate and extremist levels.  It really has caused me to strengthen my outreach to people all over the world whether we have the same viewpoints or not.

Manal Al-Sharif has not only inspired women from the Middle East, but also women from all over the world.  She is a true hero.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
