"Every once in a long while you come across a book that touches your heart so deeply you will always remember where you were when you read it. And well after you turn the last page, the story will remain with you imprinting a message that in some small way changes how you see the world. I Shall Not Hate, Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish's personal memoir, is one such story."--Heather Reisman, Chapters
