    Best-selling author and renowned religious scholar Karen Armstrong presents a concise and articulate history of Islam, the world's fastest-growing faith. Beginning with the Prophet Muhammad's flight from Medina and concluding with an examination of modern Islamic practices and concerns, Armstrong delivers an unbiased overview. She contends that no religion is more feared and misunderstood by the Western world as Islam, and firmly challenges the notion that these two civilizations are on a collision course.

    "Pronunciation Problems Ruin a Well-Written Book"
    Overall

    This audiobook's merits are unfortunately lost in the absolutely horrible pronunciation of the many Arabic words and names that necessarily occur throughout the text. The narrator seems to be completely unfamiliar with the language, at one point even badly mispronouncing the name "Hussein" (which by now even the most linguistically challenged of us knows)!
    This audiobook selection badly needs rerecording by either an Arabic speaker, or at least someone who has spent a few minutes going over the names with an Arabic speaker.
