Publisher's Summary

Born into the factious world of war-torn Arabia, Muhammad's life is a gripping and inspiring story of one man's tireless fight for unity and peace. In a world where greed and injustice ruled, Muhammad created change by affecting hearts and minds. Just as the story of Jesus embodies the message of Christianity, Muhammad's life reveals the core of Islam. Deepak Chopra shares the life of Muhammad as never before, putting his teachings in a new light.

An accompanying PDF file chronicles Muhammad's life and genealogy.

Critic Reviews

“[O]ne of the most imaginative and touching biographies of Muhammad….Chopra’s grasp of Muhammad’s life and mission extends his range in a surprising direction; his popularization is welcome.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Compellingly told, this is not only good storytelling, it also helps readers, especially non-Muslims, better understand the complexities and contradictions surrounding Islam.” (Booklist)

Poorly written and poorly narrated

I was a bit surprised about how poorly written and narrated this book was. Dr. Chopra is capable of much better writing. He certainly should have let a professional narrator do the reading.
