I have to agree with T_W. This book isn't a serious review of Islam in today's world. Firstly, regarding the title...nobody speaks for Islam and a billion people don't have a unified view. But it is worth a scan through just to see what a mediocre book it is.
In any case many books from several sources should be read to try, (emphasis on the word 'try') to get a balanced review of where things stand in these intense current times. Ibn Warraq's books are informative, in particular, 'What the Koran Really Says' as well as 'Why the West is Best: A Muslim Apostate's Defense of Liberal Democracy'. Also consider Ayaan Hirsi Ali's books of her 1st hand experiences, and Wafa Sultan's book. I'd avoid Karen Armstrong's writings on any religion. She seem to be a major Islamist apologist and Christian basher following her short 4 year career as a nun.

Excellent work that is based upon critical research on what Muslims really believe. A great source to find unbiased answers.

Excellent work. Totally unbiased handling and deductions "Clash of ignorance rather than clash of civilizations"
