A good introduction to the eminent scholar of the Islamic Golden Age, known especially for the Canon of Medicine. Attracitve illustrations but I'm not a fan of the first person narrative for a biography. No source notes or bibliography. Translated from Arabic. From the same collaborators of The Amazing Travels of Ibn Battuta, also published by Groundwood. ( )
