Looking for a Book: The Middle East

This morning, I woke up and realized how little I know about the Middle East. I’m talking in general and specifically. What are key differences between Iran and Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Syria? I have to be honest and say that the region blends together for me and that’s not good.

I want to start somewhere, and I was hoping a book exists that discusses differences in regions, countries, cultures, etc. Of course, I could read one whole book on Iran, and then another whole book on Iraq, and go on like that, but I’m just looking for an overview. After that, I’ll dive in deeper.

If anyone has any recommendations, please send them my way. Thank you!
