Axis of Evil World Tour goes beyond the 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.

Interesting book. Informative.
Fascinating armchair travel book - great pictures and anecdotes! It's fascinating to imagine an American citizen visiting North Korea and Iran. Exciting read and excellent details of interactions with local people!
I look forward to more books from Scott Fisher - a memoir about years of living in Seoul would be great!
Btw, The e-book price is much lower than the printed book price.
I really liked the chapter on Scott's visit to N. Korea. I liked his humor throughout the book yet he remained respectful.
