I didn't realize how much I did not know about the life of the key figure in Islam before I listened to this book. It certainly is a controversial piece for anyone who is emotionally invested in this religion, but the account seems to be pretty balanced, even though it does not paint the main hero in a positive way. The author however tries mostly to avoid judgement or speculation and to present only facts.
In my opinion he succeeds in demystifying the religious figure of the prophet, and to gather as much information about him as is currently possible. Even though there are a few conclusions and suggestions made during the book, and it is quite clear which side of the debate Spencer is on, I feel that he does successfully present the case and the historical account. Even if you disagree with the conclusion, it is definitely worth listening to.
The narration was pleasant to my ears as well.
