    Useful insight into radical islam from within

    This is a book by former jihadist who converted into Christianity and became an anti-Islamist activist. It is in essence a work of propaganda and counter-propaganda directed against worldwide radical Islamic extremist ideology. To start with the weaknesses of the book, to me the authors arguments looked poorly organized, sometimes repetetive, and obviously very one-sided. They seem unlikely to convince anyone form the other side. However this book has something many scholarly Western works on the subject lack : much larger collection of directly translated extremist extracts from Muslim world press, mosque sermons, citations of Quran,family conversation etc . This is what the Muslim masses are exposed daily to and what the author himself has experienced in his youth. Perhaps the Muslim world is not as 100%-controlled by this wave, but it is certainly necessary to truly know it to understand the jihadi mindset. Even based on this point alone, I would've recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject. It is easy to read and appropriate even for a reader with limited knowledge of the Middle East and its history.
    I grade the books as Buy and Keep (BK), Read Library book and Return ( RLR) and Once I Put it Down I Couldn't Pick it Up ( OIPD-ICPU). This one is RLR .
