There has been much in the news lately on terrorism with the demise of OBL, so this is the prefect time to finish and review this book. Tremble the Devil is a non-political and very detailed look at the history and advancement of terrorism. No right or left, just facts and history.

There is so much in this book that it is difficult to even give a synopsis of Tremble the Devil. The author details history, the types of terrorism, and the main characters involved. It is stunning to realize how much...more

"Tremble the Devil" is not just another book on terrorism. Written by a former Department of Defense counter-terrorism analyst, "Tremble the Devil" is the most accessible book on terrorism ever written. "Tremble" is an illuminating perspective on the complicated subjects of terrorism and the drug trade from a DoD insider, without the political agenda put forth by most news outlets.

"Tremble the Devil" will change your perspective on terrorism. No other author has so intricately written about ter...more

I bought this b/c some Redditor did an IAMA/AMA about writing this. I liked his story, and told him I would buy it. I did, and I have been enjoying it. It's interesting, mostly well written (an editor would help, but over all it's on point.) This guy quit his job, put himself $90K in the hole to write this book on terrorism and the drug war, and feels that this is the only thing he has done with his Harvard education. If this is all he does with it, it was well earned. The most important message...more

did you ever want to know what really motivated the 9/11 hijackers, osama, 7/7 bombers, and other legendary "terrorists" to do what they did and how they did it? then this is probably the book for you. stripped of almost all political propaganda ("they hate us because of our freedoms!"), this book is full of raw truth. still reading....

Tosh.
my review will be a sum of parts.
firstly my disappointment that the book didn't deliver on any of its signalled levels. it's not a history of terrorism. it's about those bits of the history of terrorism that fit with the author's aim of citing Modern Radical Islam as the likely cause of most of future events.
I'm not anti semetic, anti islam or any other anti religious sect. I read this with the latest horrific scenes in Gazza gracing my TV screen. I struggled to the end because I wanted...more

Good book about terrorism combined with some thought-provoking views on the Civil Rights movement and the War on Drugs.
