Number-one best-selling author and radio host Glenn Beck exposes the real truth behind the roots of Islamic extremism in Muslim teaching in this sharply insightful audiobook that debunks commonly held assumptions about Islam and the dream of a renewed caliphate.
From the barbarians of ISIS to the terror tactics of Al-Qaeda and its offshoots to the impending threat of a nuclear Iran, those motivated by extreme fundamentalist Islamic faith have the power to endanger and kill millions. The conflict with them will not end until we face the truth about those who find their inspiration and justification in the religion itself.
Drawing on quotes from the Koran and the hadith, as well as from leaders of ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood, Glenn Beck seeks to expose the true origins of Islamic extremism as well as the deadly theological motivations behind these agencies of destruction.
Using the same unique, no-holds-barred style from his best-selling books Control and Conform, Glenn Beck offers straight facts and history about the fundamental beliefs that inspire so many to kill.

Narration by Jeremy Lowell was superb, which made listening to "It's all about Islam" all the more engaging. However, it would be an advantage to own a print version for quick reference to the many Qu'ran and Hadith citations
Glenn Beck provides a brilliant introduction to this book. It's all about Islam makes a frank and accountable case for why the principles and motives of today's "islamic extremist groups" are so poorly understood by western cultures.
I recommend this audiobook for anyone wanting to understand the historical, political and spriritual underpinnings of todays fundamental Islamist militant organisations.
This book is an unfortunate work of strong bias against Islam as a religion, and misuses religious texts to support the author's views. Doing a similar analysis on the Bible would have rendered a picture of all Christians as bloodthirsty monsters bent on world domination. I was hoping for a book giving a balanced view on Islamic texts, but this book skips all context (both historical and religiously) that does not support the underlaying theme; that Islam is bad.
"outstanding book! everyone should read it!!"
This is a must read for anyone who has never read the Koran and doesn't have a full understanding of the history of Islam.
This book is not afraid to confront the facts of current events and backs it up with quotes, and references to support its thesis.
listening to this book is like drinking from a fire hose. Lots of information it comes very fast so even though I got the audio book I just ordered the paper back so I can go back through and try to get more out of it.
"Very important read for current situation."
Reveals the core Islamic beliefs, traditions, and history that obstruct the peace process. Rich with references from the Koran and Hadith, as well as historical perspectives from Thomas Jefferson to the modern day media.
"Very Clear and Concise"
This was masterfully done, and well supported by incontrovertible facts. A must read for those who are interested in learning more about Islam.
"Truth, not PC"
Well presented, researched history of Islam. Debunks lies about Islam meant to make Islam palatable to the world.
"Not about Islamophobia"
Beck's obviously right wing but you should know that before listening. On the other hand, he makes great use of quoting texts and statements by prominent Muslims to make his points. If you can get past his right-leaning bent, you will be challenged by questions like "Is Islam compatible with the first amendment (or our constitution in total)?" Or, "How will such a divided religion such as Islam reconcile the claims and behaviors of the radicals with the more modern?"
The book leaves one wondering how Americans, Brits, French, etc will deal with the issues of free speech, shariah and terrorism.
All-in, a worthy listen for a calm and thinking person. Maybe not so much for radicals on either side.
"Another fact filled book"
Thoroughly researched and explained, it gives the reasons why "It Is About Islam" without resorting to name calling, and going for the emotional gimme. If you are interested in finding out more, it is well worth the price of admission.
This is an easy listen for anyone and it is very educational. All Americans need to know the information in this book.
"Great overall read!"
Glen does not mince words. the author tells it like it is. if you are easily offended and want to hear partial truths, don't bother. if you can handle reality with evidence to back the information presented, get ready for a great book.
"Wake up, the west"
Very informative. Extremely concerning and a wake up call to all of us that value our freedoms.
