Unlike many books about Al Qaeda and terrorism, THE AGE OF SACRED TERROR is not by journalists; instead, it offers the perspective of Daniel Benjamin and Steven Simon, National Security Council directors during the Clinton administration. Although much they describe is not new, the authors' perspective on 9/11, and the events leading up to it, is different from that commonly heard, and offers a candid examination of the Clinton admin-istration's actions, and inaction, followed by a critique of the Bush administration's policies after the attacks. Philip Bosco paces the book well, allowing the listener to focus on the events described. Bosco has a rare voice that, by itself, exudes credibility. His flawless reading demonstrates why he is an accomplish-ed actor, and a welcome audiobook reader. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
