There aren't many books available in English about the great scientists of the islamic world, so the publication of this series about Al-Biruni, Al-Khwarismi, Ibn-Sina etc is very welcome. A bit boring and summarizing style with an apologetic tendency. By the way, it is just 100 pages with big letters, and has nice illustrations.
