THE ONE PERCENT DOCTRINE Deep Inside America's Pursuit of Its Enemies Since 9/11

by | Read by Edward Herrmann

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

A word that quickly comes to mind, shortly into this audiobook, is "elegant." Suskind's writing lends itself to this format because he so skillfully turns a phrase. And Edward Herrmann is a perfect reader for this book, lilting over Suskind's snappy but sometimes complex prose yet remaining calm throughout this most dead-serious of subject matter. Suskind did a first-rate reporting job here. The reader is whisked into the secret inner workings of the war on terror, with revelations at every turn. A fascinating listen, also deeply disturbing, written and read by men worthy of the task. One minor disappointment: no audio extras; this would have been an excellent forum for an author interview.
