This book is a careful and scholarly analysis of Muhammad and his legacy based on respected islamic sources.
Muhammad is revered by something close to one billion people and held up as an example of how his followers should live their lives. His apologists often point out his wisdom, his charisma, and the respect he earned from his contemporaries. What his islamic apologists don't mention to non-muslims is that he was a bloodthirsty warlord who married a seven year old girl, his daughter-in-law, and 10 to 15 other women. He conquered the Arabian peninsula in the name of his new religion, and repeatedly commanded his followers to kill non-muslims "wherever they found them". His example reverberates to this day. The "religion of peace" is often anything but, and no amount of wishful thinking will make it so. The West sorely needs a better understanding of the life of Muhammad and the example he set.
