Review

" ""One of the most compelling descriptions of radical and political immersion of recent times" - Mail on Sunday(UK)"
""This is a book for our times. It should be read by anyone who wants to understand how the extremism that stalks our world is created and how it can be overcome. It could only be written by someone who has lived this story. And Maajid has." - Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair

"One of the essential books to understanding the path to radicalism that will fill one with hope that others can find their way back as Maajid Nawaz relates so movingly." - Tina Brown, editor-in-chief of "Newsweek "and "The Daily Beast"

"Imagine Homeland crossed with Skins, and you will get some idea of what a gripping, revelatory book this is. Unputdownable." - Tom Holland"Amazing story of redemption...READ." - Peter Tatchel, British political campaigner'This book is the account of a redemptive journey through innocence, bigotry, hardline radicalism and beyond to a passionate advocacy of human rights and all that this can mean ... I was moved beyond measure.' --Kate Allen, Director, Amnesty International UK"
"'This book is more powerful than America's drone attacks because it helps kill the ideas that inspire terrorists. Ultimately, it is by defeating the extremists' worldview that we will make our world safer. Maajid's compelling story from hatred to hope shows us how this can be done' --Ed Husain, author of The Islamist'Maajid Nawaz was thirty years my junior when I first encountered him in the Torah Prison. His story saddened but inspired me. His innocence and idealism sharply contrasted with corruption and despotism of his captors. Through Maajid my faith was renewed that a spring of freedom was bound to happen eventually, and so it did.' -- Dr Saad El-Dine Ibrahim, Egyptian liberal reform pioneer & former political prisoner"Everyone should read it" - Nicola Jeal (Saturday editor, The Times & Editor, The Times magazine) "

"Maajid Nawaz's "Radical "is fascinating, and essential if you want to understand in a visceral way why some young Muslims embrace extremist ideology.
