The Muslim Brotherhood, or Ikhwan, has engaged in terrorism, assassinations, and anti-Western, anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence for almost a century - yet few Americans realize how powerful they really are. While we focus on al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, it's actually the Muslim Brotherhood, the world's oldest, most influential, and most anti-American Islamist group, that has become the preeminent voice and power in the Muslim world.
Hiding behind a cloak of respectability and expensive Western suits, the Muslim Brotherhood is installing vehemently anti-American governments and power structures throughout the Middle East and the world, as we sit back and cheer for the "democracy" of the Arab Spring.
In his new book, The Brotherhood: America's Next Great Enemy, Erick Stakelbeck teaches us the frightening truth about this dangerous group, from his first-hand experiences investigating the Brotherhood for eleven years, interviewing its members and visiting its mosques and enclaves.
In The Brotherhood, Stakelbeck:
With Middle Eastern unrest only growing hotter, and saber-rattling at the West only growing louder, the Muslim Brotherhood's growing global clout will remain on the front burner of American national security challenges.
Revealing and disconcerting, The Brotherhood is a must-listen for every American hoping to remain in a free America.

"Erick exposes the Muslim Brotherhood, how they operate, and how our government is aiding and abetting this threat. Genius." (Glenn Beck)
Geopolitics, history, and philosophy junkie. I love smoothly flowing prose that moves me effortlessly from one idea to the next.
I gleaned a great deal, but I wish the book had been more objective and less adversarial. At some points, it was more diatribe than a scholarly objective work. I don't mind the POV aspect, but the intonations became a little over the top. Too bad because this is a topic that deserves top billing.
I bought this book to try and learn more about the Brotherhood. I did not learn anymore about the Brotherhood, then I already knew. This book is nothing more then a platform to put down the liberals and President Obama. Stakelbeck had some valid points, but very few. After listening for about 3 hours, I shut it off. I could not stand anymore of his far right crazy ranting.
NEVER. Erick Stakelbeck is a right wing crazy person.
John Pruden's performance was okay. Nothing wrong with it.
I wish I had not wasted my money on this audio book.
