    Reading this book will make you less sure of yourself - and thats a good thing. In The Invisible Gorilla, Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons, creators of one of psychology's most famous experiments, use remarkable stories and counterintuitive scientific findings to demonstrate an important truth: Our minds dont work the way we think they do. We think we see ourselves and the world as they really are, but were actually missing a whole lot.

    Two of the country's leading anti-terrorism experts probe to the heart of 9/11, examining the plots and conspiracies that led up to that day, and showing us the need for continued vigilance against future threats. For those of us who believe that the current danger comes only from Osama Bin Laden and Al-Quaeda, Benjamin and Simon show that they are only part of a larger and more durable phenomenon.

    Long before September 11, 2001, Steven Simon and Daniel Benjamin warned publicly of a massive terrorist strike against America. They were not voices from the fringe; they had been the directors of the White House's counterterrorism program. Their warnings were ignored. Now they have written the definitive work on radical Islam's war against America, from its deep origins to our long struggle ahead.
