    No perceptive insights/reveals. And that's damning in a book of this sort. On the plus side, my relative displeasure/irritation on reading such a mediocre work is offset by the fact that my reading has picked up considerable pace of late and I've embraced new challenges.

    I liked this book but I think there's too much information about all the wars that were going on before the 9/11 together that sometimes makes me feel lost and I don't know where I am. However, this book explains very well the "reasons" about all the attacks that Bin laden's group made.

    This book was amazing and at the same time very scary. To know that one man had as much power as he did is hard to fully understand. He had all this power for so long. Americans think he just had power since the first twin tower bombing but he had this kind of control since the 1970s and 1980s. This book does a great job of telling you how he gained his power over a long period of time and how he got so many to follow him. I enjoyed this book.

    Do individuals make history or do circumstances call forth individuals?In this case of osama the second is more accurate.
