DESTINY DISRUPTED A History of the World Through Islamic Eyes

by | Read by Tamim Ansary

History • 16.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

This is the audiobook about Islam you’ve been waiting for. Ansary's presentation of Islamic history, ideas, and values, explained from an American point of view, makes clear material that can seem opaque in a lengthy textbook or lecture series. Ansary's strong, warm voice adds enormously to his powerful discourse. His matter-of-fact tone prevents the listener from being overwhelmed by his apparently effortless authority regarding the early Khalifa, Mongol dynasties, Liebnitz, and 9/11. His slight Afghan accent makes his presentation more personal. Only the numerous, and absolutely necessary, Arabic words can be a challenge for the listener.
