Immense in scope and unnerving in its findings, Holy War, Inc. reveals:
Holy War, Inc. helps us to see bin Laden's organization as a veritable corporation that has exploited 21st century communications and weapons technologies in the service of a medieval reading of the Koran and holy war. This is essential listening for anyone trying to understand the militant Islamist movements that could determine the fate of governments - and human lives - the world over.

"For readers who feel they are swimming in daily newspaper articles and television reports and want a single source that brings all the background together, this readable book works well." (New York Times Book Review)
i'm new to listening to audio books ,but this one has me hooked.i found it very informative and easy to listen to.gives a good insight into how bin lardin and his "holy war inc" works.if you have interest in this subject (how alqeada and co work,and who bin lardin is) then this should be of much interest to you.
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.
Disappointed in Bergen for manipulating facts in Holy War, Inc differently then the information provided in The Longest War.
"Gehad on the Western World"
This book was very interesting and full of information I was totally unaware about. It characterises in great depth and explains the realities why Bin Laden had deep seated hatred against the US Administration and its allies. Altough, I do not agree with the mans hardend views, to me as I read between the lines the portrayal on any religious readings can be interpreted by anyone and delivered out with good or gross intent in mind.
