Osama bin laden gets a mention but not Mohamed
That just about sums up this very shallow work
Adequate for an 8th grade social studies essay
Fair amount of bias...
The book is not worth it. The book itself misses a lot of information and shows a ridiculous amount of bias against certain leaders and states. Some facts are wrong and it refers to Marxism as a religion.
Love the short bio's, perfect to get just enough info to have good general knowledge. If you want in depth biographies of each - buy hundreds of books and waste hundreds of hours..
