Firooz E. Zadeh has been a successful educator at both public schools and college level and is now utilizing that experience as an enrichment lecturer for cruise lines. He has an exceptional talent in inspiring his audience to respect different cultures and nationalities for who they are and what they believe in. His understanding of international affairs makes him a fascinating writer, lecturer and a true citizen of the world. He was born and raised in Iran, where he became a national champion in soccer and track. Finding his life restricted by political repression in his own home country, he fled to America and continued his graduate studies in the United States. Upon his retirement Mr. Zadeh was given the accolade of "outstanding teacher." His book Islam versus Terrorism describing an Intimate View of Understanding Islam and the Culture of the Middle East is another book not to be missed.
