Very interesting

Short and informative. The predictions are proving to be remarkably accurate. If this book tells us anything its how we need to stop finding what separates us, and start focusing on what brings us together. It seems we have been moving toward a potentially catastrophic clash that no one is going to enjoy.

Clash

Informative and gives an idea of what the future holds. Very logical and a blueprint for putting into action a plan that will slow down the Clash if Civilizations.

Simple minded ideology

Very simplistic view. From Morocco to Indonesia, and from Nigeria to Kazakhstan there is much more diversity and variety in the Muslim countries than the author may even imagine.
With such simplistic view no wonder that you have presidents like W Bush and Trump.
Muslims can embrace "western values" which I admire, but most of them have seen, especially from the US, only bombs and greed. How much do the US spend in aid and to promote culture, and education, surely less than 0.1% of what it spends in bombing. Would these numbers be reversed and you would see how close we may become.

Excellent analysis and well narrated.

.Not without controversy and the divides of civilizations may have changrd by now. Predicions about Russia and Ukraine appear to have been underestimated.
