    From the author of the New York Times best-selling Holy War, Inc., this is the definitive account of the decade-long manhunt for the world’s most wanted man, Osama bin Laden. Al Qaeda expert and CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen paints a multidimensional picture of the hunt for bin Laden over the past decade, including the operation that killed him.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I thought this book might get slow or or be slanted one way or the other.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    It's just the facts. It really gets into how the terrorists work and how the CIA works.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Just how the structure of both the terrorists and the CIA are so different than anything you read in fiction.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    How risky the hit on Bin Ladin's compound was. There were a number of other outcomes from that situation that could have spun US foreign relations in vastly different directions.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I'm not much for politics but this was a quick read and a great look in at how decisions, for good or bad, are really made with regard to foreign policy, as well as the role the president played in everything.
