Axis of Evil World Tour: An American's Travels in Iran, Iraq, and North Koreaby Scott Fisher
North Korea: Visit the tense yet quiet DMZ that divides North from South, one of the eeriest places on earth. Spend time touring/i>
Axis of Evil World Tour goes beyond the superficial coverage found in much of the media to bring a boots-on-the-ground look at three of the most enigmatic, difficult-to-enter countries on the planet-Iran, Iraq, and North Korea.
North Korea: Visit the tense yet quiet DMZ that divides North from South, one of the eeriest places on earth. Spend time touring Pyongyang, the showcase capital that houses the regime and its elites. Travel halfway across the country to the beautiful "Heavenly Fragrance" mountain for a visit to the surreal, cult-like "museums" housing gifts to the country's leaders, Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il.
Iraq: What's it like to live on a U.S. military base during the war in Iraq? Spend two months as part of the Iraqi Survey Group, the international team that was tasked with finding Saddam's weapons of mass destruction.
Iran: What do Iranians think of the U.S. and Americans? You might be surprised. Travel around the country and take an inside look at Khomeini's tomb, hear about Iran's own fight against Al Qaeda, and take a look inside the secret world of the mullahs that really run Iran.

A great book. Easy reading but very funny and tremendously informative. I can't say enough about it.
Years ago, I did a curious search about North Korea and whether any Americans had gone there, and the web site for this book was one of the first that came up. What I read and saw about the place was very fascinating, which became even more so as I learned more. It eventually led to me to visiting there years later, where I saw many of the same things that Fisher wrote about - quite a trip! The sections of the book about Iraq and Iraq are very interesting and enjoyable as well. All together, the book is a terrific account of experiences inside not just one, but three places where relatively very few Americans have gone.
