This wasn't so much a study in how the attack was planned and executed as it was a study in why. It's a very good narrative about the Jihad movement, why it is what it is, how it came to be, and the moralizing behind attacks we could never understand. 'We' being the kind of people that could never considering doing such a thing, for any reason. I found it very interesting to learn about the backgrounds of the people involved. It was also narrated very well, editing was good, pace was consistent, and emotion came through without being over-done.
This book is a great achievement, the wide scoop of history with all its components is page turning interesting.
Thank you for your time and deep research.
This book should open your eyes to the BS that goes on in our government
Maybe we could not stop the attack
But by sharing information we would have had a chance
Powerful book we should never forget
I immediately bought this as I learned of the Hulu original series based on this book. I’m glad I listened to it.
I think the author told the story extremely well. It is a sad story every American should know.
The author reads the book in this edition. While enjoying the authenticity of the performance, he is a better writer than narrator.
Would’ve been better with a professional narrator I stead of the author.
Th beginning and middle parts of the book are excellent if you are reading for a better understanding of the Middle East and the political Islam movement. The book also offers a good modern historical narrative for both Saudi Arabia and Egypt, which provides necessary context for the Saudi-Bin Laden-9/11 link. However, by the end of the book, I was tired of the dramatic backstory on the American side and the minutiae of almost every character's life. Lastly, I find the soft, meek, almost-charming character portrayal of Osama Bin Laden to be distasteful.
