Easily one the best books I read in 2009. Non-fiction but written in a page-turner style. The meticulous research shines in the vivid descriptions and on the ground accounts of what happened at the birth of Islam. Don't read this book because you feel you should get into the heads of one of the major religions of our times. Read this book because it's well-written and exciting.
