These pamphlet-books handed out to you on the street by guys with serious beards are usually kind of feeble, but this one makes some thoughtful points before descending into the usual silliness of trying to "prove" the Qur'an is divinely revealed because it says the seas do not mix and an embryo resembles a "chewed substance". It is quite good on Islam and women (although it dismisses any practice that does not match its slightly starry-eyed take as un-Islamic and therefore unnecessary to take into account, and I'd agree with the former but not the latter), affecting and personal on Qadhaa and Qadar (fate and predestination), which "leave no room to be sad", and good on the material culture and significant places of the faith, which many of these books do not cover beyond the Kaa'ba.
