A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilizations
Hirsi Ali tells the stirring story of her search for a new life in America in this vivid philosophical memoir, picking up where Infidel left off.
Nomad is a portrait of a family torn apart by the clash of civilizations. But it is also a touching, uplifting, and often funny account of one woman’s discovery of today’s America. While Hirsi Ali loves much of what she encounters, she fears we are repeating the European mistake of underestimating radical Islam. She calls on key institutions of the West—including universities, the feminist movement, and the Christian churches—to enact specific, innovative remedies that would help other Muslim immigrants to overcome the challenges she has experienced and to resist the fatal allure of fundamentalism and terrorism.

Mostly Excerpts from First Book "Infidel"
This was wasted time for someone who read the first book Ms. Ali wrote, "Infidel." Huge chunks of the book were nearly (or actually) the same as many from that book without updates or added nuance. I find Ms. Ali a compelling figure, but this book, having read that one, was pointless.
Ms. Ali works at a U.S. think tank, yet the majority of her assertions as to how to improve Muslim-Non-Muslim relations--regardless of what you think of them--utterly lacked statistics or how she would hope they'd be implemented in America or another specific country.
Really the only thing that stood out was how so many paragraphs were (nearly?) the same as her first book.
