This book reads like Huston Smith was taken hostage by Muslims and he wrote it while under the influence of Stockholm Syndrome. He makes only a couple passing references to Muhammad's multiple wives and no mention at all of Aisha, who married him when she was six (though the marriage was mercifully not consummated until she was nine.) The only mention of death by stoning being the punishment for adultery is in rebuttal to a supposed Western stereotype that Islam causes licentiousness. When he covers the rule that daughters inherit half of what their brothers inherit, it "seems just, in view of the fact that unlike sons, daughters would not assume financial responsibility for their households." Take that, feminists!
