    The September 11 assault on the World Trade Center was the most sophisticated and horrifying in a series of operations masterminded by Osama bin Laden and his Jihad group - an organization that CNN's terrorism analyst Peter Bergen calls Holy War, Inc. One of only a handful of journalists to have interviewed the world's most wanted man face to face, Bergen explains the Jihadist network that operates globally and in secrecy.

    "Al Qaeda inflitrated American Elite forces"
    Overall

    Gives a detailed review of the events leading to 9-11. One of the books strong points is it gives short biographies of the terrorists involved in al qaeda and the ideological background of the terrorists.

    Story

    This extraordinary biography by one of the most highly regarded historians on the subject examines Lincoln both as a rising politician and as president. As a defender of national unity, a leader in war, and the emancipator of slaves, Abraham Lincoln lays ample claim to being the greatest of our presidents.

    G. Murray says: "Tedious political analysis of Lincoln's career"
    "why doesn't this score higher in the searches?"
    Overall

    I can't understand why this book doesn't rate higher on the audible.com searches I stumbled upon it but if you searched for it through the search engine its so far down that it might as well not be on the site.

    Great book and the first non-american to win the Lincoln award for literature. He is an American History scholar at Oxford university. He focuses on power and has many modern day comparissions.

    In this remarkable book, hailed by CEOs, politicians, coaches, and college presidents alike, Donald T. Phillips examines Lincoln's effective leadership style. As he explores the President's diverse management skills, he demonstrates how you can succeed with them in today's complex world.

    Henrik says: "A few things you should know before downloading"
    "Learned little on Lincoln or Leadership"
    Overall

    I came in with high expectations but I was disapointed. I really learned little about Lincoln or Leadership and I didn't like the narrator.
