5.0 out of 5 stars A must read, 23 Mar 2008
This review is from: 1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World (Paperback)
This is one of my favourite books. It gives ample information about Muslim contributions to the world from Iraq, Iran, India, China, Turkey, Spain, etc. and has information in seven sections regarding inventions relating to the home, school, hospital, city, world and universe. In addition to this, there is a section at the end with biographies of Muslim scientists and explorers, a timeline and a map of Muslim contributions. All of this is easy to read and well laid out with many picture illustrations.

Furthermore, although the main author of the book is Muslim, he frequently references and quotes non Muslims who have acknowledged the Muslim contributions, including TV presenter and author Adam Hart-Davies, presenter of "What the Ancients Did for Us", who even wrote a positive review for the book.

I would definately recommend this book to anyone, Muslim or not, not only to inspire them but also to bring an awareness of this broad heritage that is often neglected. I am grateful that such efforts have been made to revive this heritage.

This review is from: 1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World (Paperback)
Explains the Muslim scientific heritage in a beautiful manner. I bought two of these, and ended up gifting them to friends. Apparently now there is a second edition, which I'm hoping to purchase soon.
