What disappointed you about The First Muslim?
Ms Gupta's accent and strange inflections are so distracting that I am unable to recommend this book.

This is an excellent book concerning the life and times of Muhammad. It was far more detailed than I expected, and I appreciate that.
The authorship is excellent. However, there are portions of the book that are taken word for word from Hazelton's Life After the Prophet. The re-telling of the stories are fine and stated correctly, but I would think that Hazelton could have changed some of the verbiage around the stories a little. I'm being pretty picky here.
The narration was a little off-putting. The woman performing has kind of a news reporter from the 1980s vibe about her. I'd describe it as a bit of up-talking at the end of long passages. Again, I'm being picky.
