Books: Reza Aslan

Jon Stewart interviews Reza Aslan, author of "No God But God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam.

It appears Mr. Aslan has just published a second book entitled, "How to Win a Cosmic War: God, Globalization, and the End of the War on Terror."

Reza Aslan's first book is brilliant, a compact history that takes the reader from pre-Mohammad to present time. It is a book worthy of owning and having in a reference library. Its sheer weight of historical fact(s) is impossible to hold in one's memory especially as the sweeping tides of Islam moved rapidly and are infrequently recorded--particular in English.

I very much look forward to reading his second book and learn how he sees the current terror trends, and in particular how he differentiates between and among one Islamic group and another--a landmine, a quagmire and always a treacherous road to follow.

    But with some reading, I found it and will read it more thoroughly.
