The Last Dickens lGrityI m still a fan Even so It was so nice to read YusufCat tell the story of his journey after all these years I have so much respect for this man s passion to do good and seek the truth He has definitely grown in his ideas too This was a pretty good book that explains the title I have always enjoyed Cat Stevens and Yusuf s music since I was a kid I ve even gotten to see himive twice once at first tour to him Standing for Something: 10 Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes live twice once at his first tour 35 years and the second was for the 50th anniversary A Cat in the Attic tour So I m uite a fanThis book is very well written and it challenged me in many ways to get through it I feel thoughike the uotes that spanned a half page were similar to a magazine article format and that the book could ve been shorter if there was better editing Just not a format fanBut the overall content is good The best part is when Yusuf explains his own Takedown: The Fall of the Last Mafia Empire life and his personal journey through artist to student to returning to music I really didn t care for the whole entire historyesson on Islam and who some of the people were The Arabic vocabulary was good and I ike anguages but I think that the book Diamantmysteriet loses aot of focus from the journey and becomes I think that the book oses a ot of focus from the journey and becomes an Islamic rhetoric affair with ong tangents taken between points on his journeyYusuf states at the end of the book though that these are intentional and he doesn t want to convert anyone but his true purpose now is to educate people about Islam That s great But I thought this would be about a man than his religion I guess if the springboard exists you gotta propel something rightThere was a ot Torrent of Portyngale: Re-Edited from the Unique Ms. in the Chetham Library, Manchester (Classic Reprint) left to be desired for me as I wish it was autobiographical with neat stories and insight into his fame or how he wroteyrics or traveling tales That s just my expectations being set too far from the mark though so be warned I guess this book will beat you over the head with Islam information but that doesn t mean there s nothing to The Pocket Mommy learn from it and apply it to yourife I m certainly interested in reading but I don t see myself converting any time soon I m glad Yusuf returned to music and he stresses the point he earned himself in that people shouldn t follow something just because others say so or interpret things a certain way the path people should follow is the one that is aid out clearly for them by the Creator I m uncertain if a higher power exists but I do As If Being 12 3/4 Isnt Bad Enough, My Mother Is Running for President! like the message of following a clear path and I can ateast apply this advice to myself and hope that I continue to follow the clear path that I choose not the diversions that exterior factors As If Being 12 3/4 Isn't Bad Enough, My Mother Is Running for President! lay out for me I justike the book Nothing spectacular or horrible just a good read Enjoy it.

Itting in a span of an hour and a few minutes I ve never really heard of Cat Steven s Yusuf Islam s music before I might have come across it but his story has always fascinated me and I am glad I got to read his musings and positive message about faith and how it can help us improve our disposition on humanity There is alot I took from it for my own knowledge and benefitI believe just The Last of the Tribe like him that every individual has their own journey with faith it may come off as strong aggressive or preachy at first but an avid seeker of knowledge usually ends up in the right place of their path eventually We need to make a conscious effort to focus on ourselves instead of judging those who are new to the faith Being patient and open minded of others and their struggle is always what attractsencourages me to feel confident about my own personal belief when it comes to religion Interesting study and representation of the role of Music in Islam A hopeful and honest book I cannot give it anyess than 5 stars as its vulnerable and personal It was good to know about Yusuf Islam and Islam from another perspective I knew the name Cat StevensYusuf Islam from my mother as a pop star who converted into Islam I have some of his songs in my mp3 player eg Morning Has Broken Peace Train among few others I am somehow familiar with his name voice Reading this memoir is just another personal way of getting acuainted with this old singer who has a beautiful voice fascinating views about ife If he wasn t a muslim I might not be
