I am happy with the book and think it definitely taught me a thing or two about Islam. I recommend it to anyone who knows little to nothing about the religion and is looking to further their knowledge of Islam.
I gave it 4/5 stars because although I liked it. It did not blow my mind.
I hope this helps.
