Reviews

Science and Islam, a fascinating and clearly written book. -- New Scientist
This is a delightful and approachable book, packed with surprises and treats and offered by a writer whose passion for the subject does not daunt his objectivity. -- Wharf
Refreshingly different ....Masood's [book] emphasis on context, combined with his easy prose, measured self-confident tone, and an effort to inject compelling human drama into the narrative, makes the present book - for the most part - wonderfully captivating. -- Arif Babul * Observatory Magazine *
