This book is a must read / listen for anyone who was enhralled by 'Against all enemies' (however with less politics) or 'Plan of Attack'. If your desire is to understand our enemy and the decisions made by our government in times of war, you need to stop watching the news and read this book. I come from a mentality that politics and war is more than ideals and that you are wasting your time if you take a backwards naive approach to this war by spouting 'nuke 'em all!'. America is the only superpower, no doubt, but has only been so for the last 40-50 years and I do not want to share the fate of the USSR, of whom I never thought would become what it is at present...myself being a child of the Cold War.
This book is outstanding in discussing, in plain terms for all to understand, how we have arrived in the position we are today with Islamic terrorists and how decisions of the past, and decisions of the present, will determine our future on a global scale. There is no bias in this book and it is rich in information that I just absorbed like a sponge...being a political science junkie. If you are considering whether to buy this book, stop reading this and add it to your cart, you will not be dissappointed!
