“If you are ready to face the hard facts, read it! . . . to be smart or ignorant the choice is yours. Whatever your option, the way you will look at Islam will never be the same again”

Ole Naado,

Founder and CEO of The New Dawn


“With this book, people will really think”

Sabine Kuesshauer,

M.A. Student, Dept. of Political Science, University of Leipzig, German


“An incisive, provocative yet persuasive piece of work, an ideal response to many of the mind boggling questions asked by the ordinary mind. A must read for all.”

—Mohamed Akidah

Lecturer, Department of Linguistics & Languages, University of Nairobi, Kenya. Former Patron, Muslim Students Association of the  University of Nairobi [MSAUN].


“This book is the voice of the many of us. The authoritative, assertive and no-apologies voice that will put to rest the many questions of our friends and family who wonder out loud: How (in ‘God’s’ name) could you become a Muslim? …. My advice? Get out of your comfort zone and confront the hard facts in this book!  The truth is: you will decide whether you are extremely smart or extremely ignorant.  The challenge is, are you daring enough to find out?”

—Isabellah Wabomba

Communications/Media/Public Relations Practitioner, Kenya. MBA Graduate, University of Nairobi; BA in Communications, Daystar University. Currently Undertaking an Advanced Course in Islamic Studies for Reverts [i.e. New Muslims].


“An amazing, fascinating, moving, well researched yet simple to understand book from a very thorough, frank, eloquent author. I thoroughly enjoyed the humour displayed. This is a book I will cherish and go back to it, again and again.”

—Xenia Younes

Greek blogger and Accounts Manager in a Private Firm, United Kingdom. She holds a BTEC National in Business Studies & Finance.


“After having read many books on Islam the past 11 years this book confirms to me that I indeed feel I have discovered something very valuable and precious other people have not. If only those people would read, they might – and Allah is the One who guides – discover the same.”

—Harun Jeroen Verstaen

Administrative employee, Netherlands; he is also a freelance translator from English to Dutch; His Master’s thesis was on the application of Shari’ah Law in Sudan, University of Maastricht (UM), The Netherlands. He is also a student of Islamic knowledge.

—Paris Fuhua Wang

“The book consists of all ingredients that make it great and interesting. The extensive and intensive research, its simplicity and the clarity of the message, its witty quotes and above all the originality.”

—Bishar Mohamed Ali

Bachelor in Social Work, Volda University College, Norway.


On July 8, 2010 at exactly 2:07:38 PM, an Email was sent from a reader to the Author:

“Hallo Salim Boss. A very close friend of mine sent me an email of your book “Extremely Smart or Extremely Ignorant” .While it is an enlightening book and it has lead me do some research [on Islam] and found out some things in Christianity that I tend not to agree with. But explain to me this concept of “JIHAD”  holy war coz to me . . . . Our God is a peaceful God! I am yet to read the Qur’an.”


—Elsie Chepchirchir Bitok

Accountant, Mombasa, Kenya.


“This book is a cross between a rigorous academic text, with invaluable quotations, facts & figures, containing a database of must read books for Muslims and non-Muslims alike and a novel with very interesting but very true stories. I was inspired and enjoyed reading it. My only complaint is that it was too big to put in my handbag so I could carry it with me everywhere, everyday.”

—Wambui Nyamathwe Kabage

Advocate of the High Court of Kenya. LLM, University of Sydney.


“The book is so interesting. I just can’t afford to put it down!”

“Salim Boss has done it! This book is evolutionary in setting a direction for our prejudiced world. Likely to change your deepest held convictions about Islam.”

Billow Kerrow

“This book is a must read . . . extremely thought-provoking and perspective changing.”



“Interesting and a real eye opener. I have no doubt that it will attract many to Islam”

Captain Yahya M.A. Ondigo
