"On September 11, 2001, the world in which we live was changed forever. The twin towers of the World Trade Center came crashing down, one side of the Pentagon burst into flames, and more than six thousand men, women, and children lost their lives in the most deadly terrorist attack on American soil. As shocking as it was, it had been long in the making: the assault was the most sophisticated and horrifying in a series of operations masterminded by Osama bin Laden and his Jihad group - an organization that CNN's terrorism analyst Peter Bergen calls Holy War, Inc." "One of only a handful of Western journalists to have interviewed the world's most wanted man face to face, Peter Bergen has produced the definitive book on the Jihadist network that operates globally and in secrecy. In the course of four years of investigative reporting, he has interviewed scores of insiders - from bin Laden associates and family members to Taliban leaders to CIA officials - and traveled to Afghanistan, Yemen, Egypt, Pakistan, and the United Kingdom to learn the truth about bin Laden's al-Qaeda organization and his mission."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

Pretty basic overview of Bin Laden and his Base.
  gmicksmith | Dec 31, 2012 |
Bergen, while reporting for CNN, had extensive experience in Afghanistan prior to 9/11 including a 1987 interview with bin Laden himself. The book was actually ready to go to press with the Twin Towers came down, so Bergen's experience of that tragedy is;especially fresh. What is probably actually shocking is that after almost 10 years how relevant this book is at large. More shocking...Bergen's statement "With the capture of Kandahar on December 7 the Taliban was finished.' p.169. ( )

A very good, if (only by necessity) outdated look at Osama bin Laden and the Islamist terrorist groups that surround him. Bergen's analysis is clear and refreshingly free of political bias. ( )
