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.

Most Helpful

Uninteresting, best avoided.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Sadly very little, it's ultimately the book itself.


Any additional comments?

Little more than the angry ramblings of an islamophobic crank, this book does nothing to examine Islam in a less politically correct light so much as it repeats tired and uninteresting examples of how Islamic scripture is often violent and illiberal. Anyone with a rudimentary training in theology will tell you this is hardly unusual for Abrahamic scripture. If you seek to learn more about Islam, look elsewhere.

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.
