Jamshed uncle gave it to me for my graduation back in 2001. splendid book.

If you are going to read a biography of Muhammad (pease be upon him) you might as well read the most authentic and earliest. That was by Ibn Issaq and called 'sirat' rasul allah'. There is a very good translation of it available by guillaume. The direct amazon link is -
http://www.amazon.com/Life-Muhammad-.../dp/019636034X

It would be fair to say that almost all other biographies appear to be based on this very first biography of the prophet..
