The title is very misleading.
The majority of the facts have a very tenuous link to Muslim Civilization - if any link at all.
Some 'awesome facts from Muslim Civilization' include:
Henna which is antibacterial is used to treat rashes
In 2011 a woman in India set a world record by decorating 170 hands with henna in 24 hrs
Chess developed more than a thousand years ago - we dont know if it began in India or Persia
The rules of chess have not changed for nearly 500 years
Two German men set a record in 2010 for the worlds longest chess game...
Human eyes can take upto an hour to adjust to the night sky.

The above examples are just from 3 of the 95 pages. The whole book padded out with a huge number of the above type of facts which have absolutely nothing to do with Islamic Civilization.

I was seriously considering sending it back under the sales of goods act for misrepresentation. However, my son seemed to like reading it - mostly as a general knowledge fact book - and I didn't want the hassle of returning, so kept it.
