"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." Christopher Hitchens writes, "A charismatic figure . . .of arresting and hypnotizing beauty. . .[who writes] with quite astonishing humor and restraint."
-The New York Times
