This was a well written book. It has a tremendous amount of detail in relation to the decision making process and family backgrounds of both suicide bombers and their dispatchers. The author was granted unprecedented access to these prisoners.

The information contained however, really wasn't all that useful for me as a police officer and trainer. I was hoping for more insights about how to identify and stop a suicide bomber. I didn't find much information on those topics.

Good reading. Recommend to everyone who is interested in suicide terrorism/martyrdom operations. I think it is very important to interview people who wanted to become suicide bombers and we are lucky that Anat Berko has shared it with us, so we can see or try to understand what they are thinking and what their motives might be.

A depressing but fascinating look into suicide bombers who didn't succeed. Why do they want death?

I did not read everything, just a couple of chapters for my essay.
