Well written, with few assertions and plentiful historical facts, quotations and narratives. I will certainly listen to this one again.
This book provides a thorough examination of the Quran, the life of the prophet Mohammed, the history of Jihad and the Crusades and of modern beliefs within the Muslim world. I've read much of the Quran and can verify that this books provides a horrific, yet honest testimony of the facts. MUST READ FOR EVERYONE, BOTH MUSLIM AND NON-MUSLIM.
A Book Every Christian, Jew and Muslim should read or listen too
A great factual book about the rise of Islam in the world and the politically incorrect tell it like it is treatment of the subject matter
I'm an insatiable reader and a 40-year student of the Crusades. This text is undoubtedly the most essential work you'll find on this subject. It profusely references Islamic texts and narratives meticulously in expressing it's analysis. And it does so masterfully. If you only have the time to digest one text on this complex subject, this should be the one.
This is the first book I have read of Robert Spencer and I can report that it will not be the last. The author is a genius. He takes a complicated subject and boils it down to what is logical and what is not. I've got a whole new view of Islam and I now understand why there are terrorists.
Half the book is quotes. Despite its title, the crusades arent discussed til chapter 11.
We are taught the names of every single islamic ruler since the dawn of time complete with their years on earth.
I found myself wishing the book was over so that i could move on to other titles in my library
Note: This is not the narrater's fault
Every appeaser should read this book, an honest look at the "peaceful" religion of Islam straight from the horse's mouth (The Quran). Spencer make his points and backs each and every one up with the text quoted directly from their holiest of books. Very informative, though disturbing. Wake up America, this threat is real.
