The subject of Muhammad and Islam is constantly avoided in the Western world as the majority of people either have little knowledge, or do not wish to offend others. As Spencer mentions in his reasons for writing the book, we live in a world where free speech is encouraged and Islam should be allowed to be criticised in the same way anything else in the western world is.

A very well written book, providing structured arguments without being overpowering in the sense you are being told what what to think.

A must for anyone wishing to expand their knowledge of an almost taboo subject.

A book all in the West should read in order to understand the motivations,and self justifications of, particularly, the dangerous Fundamentalist" Jihadist"element of Muslim Society.( and why the more proggressive elements are so unwilling to speak out strongly against it,or reform their religion for the 21st Century)
The book convincingly corrects the erronious assumptions that Western Leaders have peddled, concerning the essentially peaceful and tollerant nature of this belief system, and their weakness to speak out to criticise in fear of claims of Racism, Political Incorrectness, or indeed physical attack.(or worse) The time is overdue for open discussion of the problems raised in this book for all our sakes.
Since this book was published, we have had the murder of Satirical Journalists in Paris,and the rise,and successes of ISIL forces in Iraq, involving fanatical Jihadists,some of whom we are told by our Security Services will return to the West to continue Jihad,against us.Therefore it is
more critical than ever that we learn the truth about their beliefs,and how to counter them effectively, to prevent further attrocities being committed against us in the name of Islam. (I suppose we will only be considered "collateral damage "by the Politicians,who are of course very well protected,and guarded.)
What comes through from the evidence in this book is that the world, that the Jihadi Fundamentalists see as their duty as good Muslims to fight to bring about( by any means), bears an uncanny resemblance to a" New Nazi Empire". As Churchill stated before the Second World War, we must prevent at all costs a descent into a" New Dark Age," and I expect he would have said much the same of Islamic Fundamentalism now.

I bought this book because I simply wanted more information after having read the Quran.
An expatriate New Yorker, I ordered two translations of the Quran (one English, one German) after the attacks of 9/11 in order to find out what it really teaches as well as to find arguments supporting my view that Islam was a religion of peace. To my surprise, I was disappointed as to the latter! Also, I found the text, with few exceptions, to be nearly incomprehensible, not to say muddled: no logical progression, very little context. I am familiar with both Old and New Testaments of the Bible, and although certain things appear strange and sometimes barbaric to modern sensibilities, the texts can be understood. Spencer tells us why this is not the case with the Quran.
What struck me most was the repeated stressing of the inferiority of non-Muslims; the constant harping on the punishments awaiting them, prohibitions against forming friendships with them, and above all, the overriding importance of waging war to spread Islam.
Spencer addresses these and many other issues that influence Muslims today. He makes very clear why jihadists can quote the Quran or cite Muhammad's example when planning acts of terrorism. We must remember that from the seventh century onward, Islam was spread by fire and sword through previously Christian countries and that the much-maligned Crusades were a reaction to this threat.
Muhammad accomplished a number of positive things; he forbade female infanticide; enjoined Muslims to support one another, be honest in their dealings and help the poor. But all of this fairness and justice applied only to brother Muslims, and of course women were second-class citizens.

A concise expose of Mohammed using the texts most widely accepted within Islam (so they can't complain that this isn't true!).
This will put you on your guard concerning claims that Islam is a peaceful religion - it is IF you SUBMIT ....... otherwise look out!

It is more important to know how you know something than to know it. I have read Ali’s translation of The Qur’an and Guillaume’s of Ibn Ishaq, and made careful notes of the latter. Being recorded within living memory of Muhammad, these two works are the nearest and most respected (by Muslims) sources of information about him. I can find no inconsistency between the events described in them and what Spencer presents as evidence. As we all do, he selects that evidence but does so in a balanced way; indeed he quotes only a small portion of the, what we today would call, atrocities perpetrated in the name of Islam during the First Century AH, and the 21st Century CE.

As Spencer writes, it is less important to know what actually happened in Muhammad’s life than what Muslims generally accept as having happened. (page 31) To me the crucial test of this, and other similar acceptances, is how every adult answers the question, ‘Do you hold allegiance to the law of the land you live in above all else?’ If the answer is not ‘yes’, that adult should move to a country where their answer is acceptable. Yes, such a question is socially divisive – it is meant to be, because the division is already there in the adults’ answers. The question is also unifying.
