Recommended for: spies & diplomats and all their groupies
Read in May, 2007

An amazing book, too intricate to even begin to summarize. If you want to understand bin Laden/Al Qaeda/terror groups, and how U.S./Saudi Arabia/Pakistan/other countries deal with them, this is must-reading. Also makes you realize that the world is still very feudal; shows you how the ruling elite - regardless of nationality - all know and deal with each other.
