“This book provides an extremely well developed discussion of the US's hunt to take out Al Qaeda. There's also a lot about Iraq and the Taliban, obviously. It's a very similar book to Descent into Chaos.
That being said, it's a very leftist approach and thus anti-Bush to a large degree. It's a little biased, but if you can ignore that it's a very intelligent book. The paperback version was published in June 2011 and contains a little blurb about bin Laden's killing. Bergen seems to think that with the Arab Spring and bin Laden's death the war against Al Qaeda is over.
We'll see. ”
