Good idea for westerners to listen to this book and get a clue about the minds of the people who hate us.
There is one good chapter in this book. The rest is old news, and Richard Thomas' reading is monotonal.
Only at the end did I realize that the audiobook is abridged, which is ALWAYS the kiss of death. (I should have looked more carefully before I bought it.) If you can, read Shelby Foote's, The Civil War. It is far more interesting.
For me, this book was an eye-opener. Fascinating story, well told by the author.
