This is the first time an ex-member openly discusses life within radical Islamic organisations. This is my story.
Back when the book was launched in the UK, news of the publicity storm The Islamist made even the front page of the International Herald Tribune:
-µThe Islamist-Óhas caused a ruckus in the newspapers, on television, on talk shows and in blogs.-ã
The Islamist has received wide and various acclaim from both the political right and left; film rights are being sought and there is still a great buzz around this important and timely book.
