I got an internship at an Islamic organization and I needed to learn more about Islamic finance in terms of origin, progress, modes, scale and reach, and overall mission and vision.

The book is, somewhat, objective talking about the doubts and on-going struggles while praising the exponential progress Islamic finance has shown. It is an easy read with easy to comprehend examples; some chapters were too basic and repetitive but I needed the reassertion of some of the concepts at times.

A must read
