Format: Hardcover
This is a very well written book, I enjoyed and learned tremendously from it. It discusses many key inventions developed by Muslim Scientists and Scholars of knowledge in the various domains (math, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, engineering, etc..)

Great book as a gift, excellent for teachers, historians and other involved in science, the history of science, or people who like to think outside the box

The uniqueness of the book, is that is among the few written in English which describe the history of modern science and how the Muslims were major contributors to it.

My father-in-law, who came to visit us, saw the book in one of our friends house and flipped through the pages and wanted one. I bought one for him as a gift. It is well worth to buy and spend time going through. Clears out lots of misconceptions.
