This review is from: Muhammad: Biography of the Prophet: A Biography of the Prophet (Paperback)
I find this book to be irritatingly inconsistent. In many places Ms Armstrong contradicts herself and in her effort to play devils' advocate as well as unbiased historian, she fails on both counts. Any non Muslim looking to read a more measured account of the life of the prophet Mohammed should read Barnaby Rogerson's : A Biography of Mohammed.
If you are a Muslim you should read the biography by Martin Ling.
