Starting with memories of the events he witnessed on 9/11 as the president's terrorism advisor, Clark tells an insider's story of our government's awakening to a threat we had never faced before. Because the written words are his own, every pause and emphasized phrase serve to hone his intended meanings as no contracted narrator could do. Although this is an abridgment, none of the meat or spice in this hot dish seems left out. In covering the anti-terrorist behavior of four administrations, his account of al Qaeda's rise to influence and its effect on our government may provide one of the most pertinent memoirs available today.
