Hi, this is Jean Sasson and I'm delighted to see the first part of my memoir (AMERICAN CHICK IN SAUDI ARABIA) available on this site. B&N has always supported my books and for that I am grateful. I LOVE B&N stores and some of my most fun times are spent browsing the books and magazines. I hope readers enjoy getting to know these very three extraordinary Saudi women I met during my early years in the kingdom. My time in Saudi Arabia was so unique -- I feel lucky to have lived there in the early days when Saudi citizens were so warm and welcoming to the expatriate community. I lived there for 12 years, and this peek at my memoir is only a small sample of the very amazing people I have met on my lifelong journey of travel and getting to know so many different people in 66 countries. Thanks to all who care about the intriguing people I write about.

    While the author's stories are funny and descriptive, she assumes a very pro-American attitude and is set on changing an entire way of cultural living. Now, I'm not saying that I completely agree with the way women are treated in that part of the world, but as an outsider, we have to go into such cultures as learners and observers. It is not our place to try and force our ideas and beliefs on others, as the author made a point of doing throughout the book. For this reason, I struggled my way through the book and was disappointed at the end result.
