This book read like a novel, but with the added benefit of being real. It was objective with plenty of detail, but not boring or too detailed. It presented the terrorist position so that it was understandable, giving insight into how the terrorists arrive at their actions, what it means to them. And it was interesting to hear contrasting points of view from within the enemy position. And of course, the details of the raid were interesting.
The most memorable part was the detailed description of the raid.
I have not heard this reader before.
The most interesting tidbit was that there were at least two strong opposing recommendations, from Gates and Biden. And the President himself thought the raid was worth it even if there was only a 50/50 chance he was there, because even that chance was better than anything since Tora Bora.
I recommend it as an objective account of a fascinating event.
