Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This vivid and detailed biography strips away centuries of distortion and myth and presents a balanced view of the man whose religion continues to dramatically affect the course of history.

Review:

"Respectful without being reverential, knowledgeable without being pedantic, and, above all, readable. It succeeds because [Armstrong] brings Muhammad to life as a fully rounded human being." The Economist

Review:

"A fresh, well-written, and often insightful account whose ten chapters give special attention to the religions roots, experiences, and motivations of Muhammad." Choice

i was quite impressed by the way the author has given the account of the prophet.Though i am a muslim and know about his life but i never saw the prophet as a man who is a father,an uncle and a loving husband.This book has brought me closer to his life and a given me a completely new outlook about his life.yet certain facts about ali(as) like his disrespect towards old have deeply astonished me.these facts cannot be true as ali (as) has been through ages known to be a humble man.
