Oversaw, Mohammed Samir Shamma, and Sam Pierstorff read a portion of their stories and discuss how writing about their relationships has changed their life.  Mattu and Maznavi also talk about their decision to write the book and the feedback they've received, particularly how it has helped opened up conversation between young Muslims and their parents.
