    "This is an excellent book for anyone desiring any overview on ISIS. It packs no punches and isn't slanted one way or the other. It is fairly free of bias and presents many facts and truths as well as first person recounts. It's not too long of a read and not too detail heavy as to make it boring or uneventful. But it is also not fictionalized so it proves reliable and a good all encompassing introduction to ISIS."

    "I was interesting in learning more about ISIS so I picked up this book. It's pretty short, but full of interesting information. There are a lot of sources used in the book, but I don't know how much I can trust them since most are web references, I haven't looked though. It's a really interesting read and it's useful to get more information than what'd you just get off the television; it made me reevaluate my understanding of the situation in the middle east. "

    "If you're looking for something that's a bit more researched than your average Wiki article, I guess this book'll do you. But honestly you're better off just ignoring ISIS in general; go buy some fiction instead."

    "The Islamist Phoenix is a great entry point for those in want of a more solid understanding of the history and social complexities involved in the rise of the Islamic State. Loretta Napoleoni explains how this iteration of Islamism does not form from a vacuum, but almost inevitably, and sometimes knowingly, from the circumstances and conditions of the West's recent involvement in the Middle East in the last century. The Islamic State can, and almost certainly will, be defeated. But how it is defeated is what truly matters, especially in the years, decades, and centuries to come."
