Just finished reading The House of Wisdom and it was really interesting. It discusses various scholars of the Arab world from around the year 750 to 1300-ish. The book really went into a lot of detail regarding what they studied and their contributions to the pursuit of knowledge. It also goes on to talk about how Europeans eventually absorbed their knowledge.
I highly recommend the book. Many will likely learn a lot from it.
