    1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World Comment


    1. We got this book after driving down to New York for a weekend to see the 1001 Inventions exhibit at the New York Hall of Science 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 It covers math, science, art architecture, food, politic [...]




    2. Being interested in high quality designed and printed booksThis one is among the best I ve seen would certainly make a good coffee table book ,Or even a luxurious giftIt summarizes the Islamic Heritage in a fair appealing presentation





    3. A brilliant source of information that other history have disregarded This opened my eyes on a wide variety of issues regarding the impact that Muslims have had on our society.


    4. 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 reading th [...]




    5. Dr Salim who I personally know has done many contributions including the 1001 Inventions museum in the U.K which has traveled throughout the Middle East If you missed the museum, you need to read the book.



    6. One from the most important books that every muslim have to read and nonmuslim to know about the golden history and what muslims didSpicily for nonmuslims in amirca so they can know muslms are than binladen D



    7. this book is not just a normal book I dont know if we even can call it a book It s a treasure, a journey whatever you call it you will not be just these awesome medieval islamic paintings, and these great HQ pictures and Colours gave this book a Soul.So you could see our ancestors in your own eyes ive this book is very important for every human.




    8. Recently saw the museum exhibit Bought the book because I wanted to delve deeper and learn 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 personally an inspirational piece of work.



    9. this book documents the period when religion and religious ideologies did not govern every single aspect of people s lives 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.


    10. I was pretty amazed at the number of ideas and inventions which were improved or spread to Europe from Asia and Africa or improved within the Muslim empires of old Simple things we take for granted, for example, coffee, were spread through the Muslims From the medical instruments designed by Al Zahrawi, recognized by 19th century Western medical historians as being at the forefront of surgical innovation, Ibn Sina s or known as Avicenna in the West Canon or Al Qanun and his Book of Cure, Arabic [...]


    11. I would give it 4 stars for the tremendous effort which the author dedicated to make this booke book s quality is awesome, it covers every aspect of the islamic or arabic civilization, it s informatively very dense and accurate, un biased historically to some degree the illustrations is well made and enlightening specially when showing how mechanical machines work.but despite all these compliments I was not satisfied with the book the book gets very dense and detailed that it becomes absolutely [...]




    12. This book is a joy to read Simply outstanding I never had fun reading a book such as this one The book is printed in high quality paper and filled with beautiful pictures and important information In addition, this book helped me in increasing my language because its rich with important vocabulary I recommend this book to everyone.


    13. I had the pleasure of meeting the author and I had the pleasure of owning this book This book is a treasure must be possessed by every muslim family especially in this era of science and respect to scientists It made me proud to be a muslim and proud to be granddaughter to such a heritage I hope we can come up, once again, with similar advances in all branches of science.
