Somehwhat defensive, but still enlightening. Provides the basis for Muslim beliefs.

Review by

This short biography of Muhammad should be required reading for all Americans over the age of 12. Armstrong manages, in the course of telling what is known about the life of the Prophet, to put Islam in context, explain the Sunni-Shi'a division, and much more. This is really the best introduction to Islam I have read--now I have to read her history of Islam.
