Reviews

"A brave, extraordinary, heartbreakingly personal story of one woman's battle for equal rights.... The book provides a rare glimpse into... the hearts and minds of people who live in a society that is mostly off-limits to Westerners. [Al-Sharif's] literary achievement is that despite the huge cultural differences, Daring to Drive shows that Saudi women and men have dreams and fears much like our own."--Associated Press
"Eye-opening... [and] compelling."

--Christian Science Monitor


"There are vignettes of laughter and love... [and] glimpses of rich, vibrant Arab life.... A testament to how women in Muslim countries are helping change their culture, one step at a time."--New York Journal of Books
"If you consider yourself interested in women's rights or the cultures of other lands, Daring to Drive should be a mandatory addition to your reading list."--The News Wheel
"If you're searching for an inspiring memoir, Daring to Drive should be on your must-read list."--Bitch Magazine
"Daring to Drive is an important book.... Al-Sharif tells her story in clear, readable prose... [and] provides readers with unusual insight into what it means to be a woman under Wahhabi."--Me, You, and Books
