Reviews

Hazleton approaches her subject with scrupulous respect... Vivid and immediate -- Hari Kunzru * New York Times *
Hazleton sets her keen eye and her sculpted prose on one of the most fascinating and misunderstood figures in history... This is a wonderful book * Reza Aslan, author of No God but God and How to Win a Cosmic War *
The most readable, engaging study of Muhammad I have ever come across * G. Willow Wilson, author of Alif the Unseen and The Butterfly Mosque *
A rich biography... Those who read it will come away well prepared to understand the prophet whose message, 14 centuries later, is the creed of more than a billion and a half people. * The San Francisco Chronicle *
Richly detailed and beautifully written... [Hazleton] is able to do with words what is almost never attempted in pictures... indispensable. * The Seattle Times *
