This was a very good book. I was looking for an explaination to the events that led to the rise of these terrorists. This book was a very good, unbiased account of those events. Like most history, it does not judge, it only explains. It does so in great detail that is sometimes hard to follow, but it is well worth the effort. It also relates the truth of this situation, in no uncertain terms: This is a far more compli
cated issue than it appears. Those countries who we have been led to believe are our allies have a strange conection to this land and its troubles. Very well worth it.
This was a good book. Not great, but good. I have not seen the movie, and I am glad I waited to read the book first. From the ads alone, I see major differences. It is an interesting account of a young man facing the event that he had prepared for, but secretly hoped he would never see.
