"A brave and elegant figure...an honest woman...No one who reads her [memoirs] will doubt the self-questioning and the rigorous honesty of her mind. Perhaps, as in Voltaire's short story 'L'IngÉnu,' it is that too much honesty is sometimes unpalatable, even if it is couched in civil terms...She has an open mind that has released itself from the old straitjacketed frame of reference of Right and Left, she is instinctively, deeply antiauthoritarian and she is unlikely to stick to straight ideological lines. She will go on asking difficult questions."
-- Isabella Thomas, The Observer
"Ayaan Hirsi Ali is one of Europe's most controversial political figures and a target for terrorists. A notably enigmatic personality whose fierce criticisms of Islam have made her a darling of...conservatives...and...popular with leftists...Soft-spoken but passionate."
-- The Boston Globe
"Too potent a social critic to be tolerated any longer [in her home country]...an unflinching advocate of women's rights and an unflinching critic of Islamic extremism."
-- The New York Times
"A charismatic figure...of arresting and hypnotizing beauty...[who writes] with quite astonishing humor and restraint."
-- Christopher Hitchens

The biography is beautifully written, it's impressive and it's simply story which everybody should face. Although author herself see Muslim as one who should change..I don't think it's exactly one sided, as per myself I found it regular practice in Europe that people tend to seek better life, learn about the greatest and construct their personalities based on those values, but I personally believe that our options expand much more when we face imperfections of the World, when we hear the story like that and realize that they are real. And suddenly for your inner self it's becoming much more important how to deal with those problems...than which new gadget to buy. This book is for citizens of the World, for people who are ready to face all it's imperfections
by her truthful narration.
Ayaan's transformation from an ordinary girl in africa to her status as an
MP in europe is only because of education. Her education not to mention
deidcation and persistant got her where she it today.
Good Luck to her and her kind.
