This book contains interesting information about Islam and its history, but you should take some of its claims with a grain of salt. My main complaint is that it caters to the very naive reader and is also quite biased in its claims. If you're interested in Islam from an unbiased academic point of view, I recommend Dr. Karen Armstrong's _Islam_ or her other book about Islam entitled_Mohammed_.
Excellent, concise overview of Islam. Indicates scientific evidences revealed in the Qur'an; Benefits of Islam; and General Information on Islam. Colorful drawings really pull the reader in and make it an easy and quick read.
