Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I highly recommend this audiobook. It's intelligent, well organized, relatively easy to follow, although some passages are very complex and require serious concentration or following along with the actual book. This audiobook is written by Majid Fakhry who is an internationally recognized scholar in Islamic philosophy. Highly recommended.

The book is insightful and exhaustive, covers all Islamic philosophers that appeared anywhere in the Muslim world. While text is interesting, it was made more accessible by the powerful and precise narration.

I really enjoyed this work, though I found getting your head around and remembering all the names difficult in an audio book! I had to Google a lot of them when I got to work just to help the names stick in my head! As an introduction I really enjoyed this and it was helpful in contextualising the interplay between Western and Islamic philosophy too. I'd recommend.
Given that all books about Islam are generally awful, this one is okay. It could be a lot better, he doesn't explain anything, and talks a lot of BS, but the book does give you an idea of what is going on if you rewind enough times.
I can now say from a position of knowledge that aqeedah is total rubbish, and lots of Muslims of the past have also thought this for good reason.
