really liked it
Read in July, 2012

Quick-moving, easy-to-read description of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. It also deals with his family, his associates, and the Al-Qaeda organization.

On a very light note, I loved that it included Obama's take-down of the mega-blowhard Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents' Dinner - mocking the "hard decisions" Trump has to make on Celebrity Apprentice ("that would keep me up at night") the same weekend he'd given the go-ahead for the SEAL team to hit Abbottabad. And, evidently one of the White House staff, when seeing that Obama's announcement of the raid and Bin Laden's death would break into the Celebrity Apprentice broadcast, said, "You can't write stuff like this."
