5.0 out of 5 stars The real motivation of the Jihadi terrorists we face, 21 Oct 2006
The Truth about Muhammad is a marvelously researched and scrupulously documented academic description of the life of Muhammad drawing only on respected Muslim sources. Despite this it manages to read like a great novel! It's got sex violence, deception and magic. It's just a pity that the implications of this are so serious for the world.

It will, of course, be criticised as only taking the negative elements from the story of the life of Muhammad but that is not the point. The point is to find the elements in this man's life that are used NOW to justify the most despicable acts; and that justification is easy to find.

The author gives a very good interview on the podcast Shire Network News and he is completely upfront about this. It takes a great deal of courage to publish this material that really needs to be read by a wide audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a special book., 15 Jun 2004
This review is from: Two Sides of the Moon (Paperback)
This is a special book. If you have never read anything of the US or Russian Space missions, this book will give a very good insight into the personal experiences of two of the most interesting people. If you've read a lot about the US, then the Russian tales will amaze you. You'll find in here an eye witness testimony from Leonov on how close the Russians were to manned circum-lunar flight and even landing coupled with the real reasons they didn't beat the Americans. From Dave Scott you'll get a great tale of personal achievement and focused determination. The book has clearly had the touch of a professional writer but the individual personalities of Scott & Leonov shine through.
