The book is originally in Turkish. And derived from the preaches of Gulen in the Turkish mosques. It must be read by keeping in mind that. Gulen had some series about life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuH) and that book comes from them. It's unique at this side, the book does not try to be "what happened, what happened, what happened bla bla" book, it focuses the life of Prophet (pbuH) from different sides, getting us daily life of Prophet, His approach in real life as a servant of Allah, as a commander, as a leader of a nation, as a friend, as a husband, as a father and so on. A very good and unique book indeed.
