    1. Whether you agree or not, certain to challenge many dogmas and make you think hard The author is certainly a brave and independent thinker.


    2. I found myself in a lot of disagreement with the content of this book, however I should admit the author made a few good points, too e.g engagement on intellectual discourses and scientific enterprises among the nowadays muslims societies, and also his critique to the West and Americans But alas, I don t really recommend people to read this book, especially if you don t have the basic knowledge in Islam.
