About the Author
Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born in Somalia, was raised as a Muslim, and spent her childhood and young adulthood in Africa and Saudi Arabia. In 1992 Hirsi Ali went to the Netherlands as a refugee, escaping a forced marriage to a distant cousin she had never met. She denounced Islam after 9/11 and now works as a Dutch parliamentarian, fighting for the rights of Muslim women in Europe, the enlightenment of Islam, and for security in the West.

Most books available on Amazon that are critical of Islam attract a few 1 Star reviews from people writing under names like "Sword of Truth" or "Allahu Akbar" alleging that the book is completely meritless and tells us nothing about Islam. I expect this book will attract one or two in due course. Pay no attention. Do seek out videos on YouTube of the author Ayaan Hirsi Ali speaking.
As the author Ayaan Hirsi Ali writes in this book:
"Muhammad says my husband can beat me and that I am worth half as much as a man. Is it I who am being disrespectful to Muhammad in criticizing his legacy, or is it he who is being disrespectful to me?"
The reader will be impressed by her very clear explanations to how she had to survive and change the other's view of Islam,by being highly educating herself and her own teachings of how to survive the clashing civilisations.. In Nomad we finally see the transition from a young women's journey in to a mature intellectual, who is explaining her physical,emotional and inner conflict, resulted in her message: With her honest way she is conveying an urgent message to inform the West what actually means to be Moslem in 21 st Century.
Honest and thought provoking literature.
