Publisher's Summary

You think you know about Islam. But, did you know that Islam teaches that Muslims must wage war to impose Islamic law on non-Muslim states, or that American Muslim groups are engaged in a huge cover-up of Islamic doctrine? These and other "politically incorrect" facts are revealed by Robert Spencer in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades). Spencer traces the history of Islam, the teachings of the Qur'an, and the Crusades, and reveals the myths and realities related to Islamic law, the treatment of women, and the continuing jihad. This is a fast-paced, politically incorrect tour that you will not hear about in school or on the evening news, but will give you all the information you need to understand the true nature of the global conflict America faces today.

Take in the Meat and spit out the bones.

Reading nonfiction is a lot like eating a fish you have to learn to swallow the meat and spit out the bones. This has some bones but as the saying goes history is very much his (or her) story. Read the suggested books which the author calls the books you are not supposed to read, but read others on Islam also. You will find this book is closer to the truth then many other books on the subject. This has renewed my reading of the Qur'an and histories of the era surrounding the crusades. Over all, I recommend it as an addition to anyone's library.

This is one of the most astonishing books I have read/listened to for a very long time! If you could make a book compulsory this would be it. This is not a doom gloom end of the world throw away, this in my view, is an astute and scholarly "Watchman on the wall" clarion call to western society to wake up along the lines of Bonhoeffer in the 2nd world war. The flow and narration is seamless. I disagree with the earlier reviewer who thought the "Jesus says, Mohammed says" sections were weak. I thought they were oustanding along with the "Books you are not supposed to read" references. There is opinion here, but it is backed up by a mountain of evidence and historical facts and quotations that has your head spinning. Refreshingly frank and to the point. A real straight shooter. The PC brigade will try shreik this down but I say read it, Read it, Read it before it's too late!

An alternative narrative.

An alternative to the mainstream narrative regarding Islam and the Crusades. It is primarily aimed at Christian Americans, and in some cases I think it goes to far in it's defence of the Bible and Christians, and it's vilification of Islam. It is however worth reading this book as many of it's points are legitimate and well argued, and it is refreshing to hear a point of view that is normally silenced in the bulk of traditional media.

An eight hour rant

I had thought that the non-pc aspect of the title might mean that this was a rather more wide-reaching exploration of Islam and how its history and that of the Crusades impacts on the situation today. However, this is essentially an anti Islam rant with no real objective discussion.
That's not to say that I don't agree with some of the points being put across, I do, but it's done in such a one-sided and repetitive manner that I can't see the book winning any converts to its viewpoint.
The audiobook isn't helped by the fact that the reader, Jeff Riggenbach sounds like a commentator on one of those US fly-on-the-wall road cop TV shows where you feel every sentence should end with an exclamation mark.
