Be aware that the Kindle edition is littered with typographical errors, at the rate of several per page. It is not difficult to deduce the original word in most cases but it is rather annoying that there are so many errors. If I had known this was not an original version of the book I would not have paid the asking price.

I have often found it difficult to find any good biographies regarding the Prophet of Islam, but this one is truly a gem. Martin Lings has done an amazing job of taking the life of this Man from the most earliest and reliable sources, then turning it into a narrative that is such a pleasure to read. It feels as though one as reading a novel, and it is difficult to put this book down once one has picked it up. The author shows real talent and i can only imagine how great and difficult a task it was to have done research to such a deep level, and then taking it all and writing it in story form. If i remember correctly i think Martin Lings is a Professor at the famous University of Cambridge, England.

There are many strong points of this book, it will give one a thorough understanding of who Muhammed was, his beliefs, mindset and what he was attempting to achieve. The story is given in it's true context without any real interpretation, rather that is left to the reader.

I found the begining chapter slightly confusing with all the arab names i was bombarded with. It was a little difficult trying to keep up with who was who. But that problem fortunately was restricted to only the begining of the book. I had no such problems with the rest of it.

I feel this is the best work ever written in the english language regards such a topic. It is thoroughly enjoyable. It is intelligent and extremely fascinating. I highly recommend it to all, both non-muslims and muslims alike. This is a must read.

Another excellent source of information if one wishes to take another prespective via a reliable source is, the documentary made by PBS titled 'Islam the Empire of Faith'. This documentary was made drawing mostly from an orientalist approach (from non-muslim scholars of Islam).

Digital edition is not good. There is no table of contents, and most of the chapters are not numbered. There are also many, many mistakes in the spelling of the words, which are not in the hard copy of the Lings book--I know, because I have both versions. Definitely easier on the eyes reading on the Kindle--one can make the print larger--so that is nice. But the digital version is harder to read because of the spelling errors, so it is not worth the $6.00, or at least should be less.

One of the best and authentic bio on the last prophet of Islam. A must read for anyone looking for a good understanding without getting too scholarly or academic. Easy and interesting read.

Because of the old sourcing plus translation of the material the writing style is dated. But it was interesting to see this biographical info from a friendly source who wasn't trying to dump on Islam.
