Working for the CIA as an intelligence expert on the Middle East qualifies the author to describe the birth, operations, and key members of Al Qaeda. Some of the information comes from intercepted and translated statements made by the key founders and leaders of the organization. Most Americans have read about the important events related in this book, but its value lies in hearing it all stitched together in one place. Narrator David Colacci reads it straight from the page, with no embellishment or voices for characters. His style gives each sentence a decrescendo fall in volume from beginning to end; sometimes the last words disappear. He never stumbles on the many complicated Arabic names and places, adding a welcome smoothness and continuity. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
