Jun 28, Karawan rated it it was amazing Shelves: I can't say enough good things about it! As a Muslim and as the daughter of an Arab who always taught me to be proud of my heritage, I did know that Muslims are responsible for all sorts of advances in math and science. But this book went beyond algebra and astrolabes and taught me lots of things that I didn't know.
Due to an unfortunate combination of politics and the way our news media works, so many people have inaccurate or limited pictures of Islam and Muslims. Books like this are important to remind us of positive influences that Islam has had on the world, and that today's Muslims are heirs to a brilliant civilization.
We have an obligation to appreciate that and live up to it in our own lives now. Jul 04, Maha. View all 7 comments.

Mar 30, Bilqis rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have read this book when I was in college, I remember it was too heavy for me to take it home from my College library, so I would go to the library just to read this book, but it was not a book that you can finish that quickly it's BIG. It was amazing, I found out so many things, and so many inventions that we were led to believe was the invention of the western world, but really were not.
Not just that, I learned a lot of history, and at that time I was not much of a reader.
I will be readin I have read this book when I was in college, I remember it was too heavy for me to take it home from my College library, so I would go to the library just to read this book, but it was not a book that you can finish that quickly it's BIG.

Sep 07, Jamal Al-Dabal rated it it was amazing. Salim who I personally know has done many contributions including the Inventions museum in the U. If you missed the museum, you need to read the book. Mar 23, Adam rated it it was amazing. Recently saw the museum exhibit. Bought the book because I wanted to delve deeper and learn more about what a wonderful history Muslims have had, that seems to have been forgotten, omitted, or simply unknown even to modern Muslims.
The Golden Age was truly a time of higher and deeper thinking about all the complexities of life and the world around us all. This book has great illustrations and descriptions.
Great historical but more personally an inspirational piece of work. Aug 10, Omar nagib rated it really liked it.
I would give it 4 stars for the tremendous effort which the author dedicated to make this book. Its a proof that once upon a time people actually left religious differences behind for the sake of making scientific revolutions and changing the world. I am really glad there is a version of this book for school-age children to learn from. Jul 16, Firas Addas rated it it was amazing. This book is a joy to read!
